What You Need to Know
Do you know what type of fire door you have in your building? What about the material it is made out of and the hardware that is installed? If you are not sure, you need to read this blog post! We will discuss the different types of fire doors, the materials they are made from and the hardware that is available. This information can help you make decisions about upgrading your fire doors or maintaining them properly.
The first thing you need to know about fire doors is that there are three main types: solid core, hollow core and metal. Solid core doors are the most durable and offer the best protection against fire. Hollow core doors are less expensive but do not offer as much protection. Metal doors are the most expensive but offer the best protection against fire and heat.
The next thing to consider is the material of the door. Fire doors can be made from wood, steel or fiberglass. Wood doors are the least expensive but they are also the least durable. Steel doors are more expensive but they are more durable and offer better protection against fire. Fiberglass doors are the most expensive but they offer the best protection against fire and heat.
The last thing to consider is the hardware that is installed on the door. Fire doors can have automatic closers, positive latching devices and intumescent strips. Automatic closers will close the door automatically in the event of a fire. Positive latching devices will keep the door closed even if there is pressure on it from the outside. Intumescent strips will expand when heated and seal any gaps around the door.
Now that you know more about fire doors, you can make an informed decision about which type, material and hardware is right for your building. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! We would be happy to help you choose the best option for your needs.
