Why Fire Door Compartmentation & Fire Stopping?
Fire door compartmentation is a an effective way of breaking up a building structurally to allow for longer periods of time to escape and for fire to spread less. Fire door compartmentation works by subsiding space within a building thus maximising the protection it can give to occupants.
Here’s a good example of how fire compartmentation can be life saving. If you imagine that a fire was to break out in a hallway of an office, and you were in a meeting room down the hall – there would likely be a fire wall, fire door and fire safety equipment in the way before the fire gets to your meeting room.

Fire Doors Winsford – FAQs
Fire doors are typically installed in various locations throughout a building to compartmentalise and contain the spread of fire, smoke, and heat in the event of a fire emergency. Fire doors are generally installed in the following locations; exit routes, areas with high fire risk, and close to fire exits.
Yes, fire doors are typically required to be self-closing as part of their fire safety function. The self-closing mechanism can vary and may include door closers, spring hinges, or other devices that automatically return the door to a closed position once it’s been opened.
Yes, fire doors need to be serviced and maintained regularly to ensure that they continue to function as intended and provide effective fire protection. Regular fire door servicing is also critical for extending the lifespan of your fire door and reducing the need for costly replacement.
Fire doors can serve as emergency exits, but their use as emergency exits depends on several factors, including their location, design, and the specific building codes and regulations in place. It’s important to consult with local building authorities and fire safety experts to ensure that fire doors are used appropriately as emergency exits.
The lifespan of a fire door depends on factors like usage, maintenance, and local regulations. Regular inspections and maintenance are crucial to ensure their effectiveness. If well-looked after and serviced, in-line with the latest regulations, you can expect your fire door(s) to last for between 15-25 years.
Fire doors should be inspected regularly, typically on an annual basis, to ensure they are in proper working condition. More frequent inspections may be required in high-traffic areas. For example, if your premises is a warehouse or supermarket, quarterly servicing may be required to ensure maximum fire safety.
Building codes vary, but in many places, fire doors are not typically required in individual residential units. However, they may be required in common areas or shared spaces. Call JST Construction and we will be happy to investigate this for you and confirm whether or not you require fire door(s).
Fire doors are constructed with materials that can withstand fire for a specified period, allowing occupants to escape and reducing property damage.
Any modifications to a fire door, including painting, should be done in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines to avoid compromising its fire resistance. If you have any questions regarding this, it’s always good to check with an accredited fire door company first before proceeding.
