Fire Doors Wirral – FAQs
When it comes to protecting and fireproofing a building, fire doors are a crucial part of the strategy. Fire doors can be made with a combination of materials, most commonly timber, steel, gypsum, and aluminium. Sometimes, they have windows too, which are made from borosilicate or ceramic glass which cope well with fire hazards as opposed to standard glass. Fire doors work by being flush with the frame with any gaps being filled with silicone based fire resistant sealant as well as other features.
Under the Regulatory Fire Reform, non-domestic buildings are required to get their fire doors checked every six months. It’s so important to get them checked by a professional company because they’ll be able to give you accurate advice and details on your situation. This act and effort could genuinely save someone’s life.
We have a couple of top quality services relating to fire. First and foremost, we install fire doors to a multitude of building types and sectors. We also do fire compartmentation which coincides with fire doors excellently. Fire compartmentation involves us looking at the layout of your building and seeing whether we could apply any construction work in order to make it more fire safe. For example, if there was one large room that was used for two different purposes, we may look to add in a wall with a fire door in between. This simply means that if there was a fire, there would be more ways of escaping the building and more ways of containing the fire.
We work in a plethora of different sectors which is something we’re very proud of here at JST Construction. Our portfolio has grown massively over the years to include lots of building types. We’ve worked in retail, construction, banking, education, government sector and everything in between as well. We are passionate about creating fireproof spaces for businesses, landlords and individuals so get in touch with us today.
The frequency of fire door inspections can vary depending on local regulations, the type of building, and the specific needs of the doors in question. For most types of businesses and premises, annual servicing is a legal obligation. It’s important to note that fire door inspections should be carried out by qualified professionals or individuals with expertise in fire door regulations and standards.
A fire rating, often referred to as a fire-resistance rating, is a measure of the ability of a building component, such as a wall, floor, ceiling, or door, to withstand exposure to fire for a specified period of time. JST Construction regularly provides fire door servicing in the Wirral for FD30 and FD60 fire doors (doors that can withstand fire for 30 or 60 minutes).
Fire door consists of several key components that work together to provide fire resistance and safety. The key components of a fire door include: door leaf, door frame, intumescent seals, self-closing device, fire-rated hardware, and fire door signage.
