Fire safety is paramount in residential homes.

If you are responsible for specifying fire doors for your residential properties, it’s important to understand the best routes to comply with regulations and ensure the safety needs of your project are met.

Everyone in the supply chain, from the architect to the manufacturer, supplier and installer has a duty of care to ensure properties have effective fire doors where they are required. After all, lives and livelihoods are on the line.

The threat of fire

National statistics show there were over 33,000 domestic fires last year attended by the fire service with in many cases the consequences being severe. The risk of fire is always there and therefore must be mitigated.

Following the Grenfell tragedy there has been greater scrutiny of fire control measures in new developments, including the specification of fire doors. Everyone in the supply chain has a responsibility to ensure the safety of property, including where required well specified, installed and maintained fire doors.

Fire door parts

A certified fire door consists of many different components which work together to achieve the necessary level of protection for the property. But if any of those parts are not compatible with the door leaf or incorrectly installed, the door will fail in the event of a fire.
