The key to passive fire protection is to contain the fire to a particular compartment or room, giving occupants enough time to escape and the emergency services enough time to enter the building and tackle the fire. Fire doors are an integral part of this, designed to prevent the fire or smoke from spreading.
The installation of a fire door is as life critical as the product specification itself.
As such, although a competent professional can install a fire door, it is recommended that the work be carried out under the BWF Fire Door Alliance Door Scheme.
The purpose of this scheme is to ensure that fire door installations are carried out correctly, safely and in compliance with current Building Regulations.
