What to consider when replacing a Fire Door?

A Fire Door is a technical product, therefore it falls under different regulations to standard internal doors.

A simple like for like replacement from ‘high street sheds’ is almost unheard of, hence 99% of the doors we replace are classed as bespoke.

Whilst this might sound daunting, POYNTELL have specialized in all aspects of door installation / repair / maintenance and are certified for Fire, Architectural Ironmongery, Security, Automation and associated services.

With our HQ in Cranbrook, we manage multiple large sites of national interest, within West and East Sussex.

Service districts of West and East Sussex include: Arun, Chichester, Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex, Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, Rother and Wealden.

Fire Door Replacement Checklist

  • Fire Rating - All hardware will have certain standards associated, and the door specification as a whole will have minimum thresholds depending on the requirements e.g. FD30, FD60, Fire & Smoke, Fire & Acoustic.
  • Architectural Style - There will also be non-compliance related guidelines associated, such as architectural requirements, and in some cases, limitations due to being a listed / heritage building.
  • Security - Physical attack and other door automation / access control systems.
  • Limitations - Each environment has its own unique challenges. For instance, a health care environment will be different to that of a factory.
