What are fire doors?
Unlike an emergency exit that sits on the outside of the building, a fire door is used internally. It is a technical product that has been tested to provide a timed level or resistance should a fire occur. The purpose of the fire door is to reduce the spread of fire and smoke from one area to another usually to protect an exit route and provide a safe refuge.
The Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) for your site will determine the fire door provision that needs to be in place. The company is then legally obliged to carry out work accordingly.
Poyntell are one of the few companies in the UK that is certified under the Q Mark scheme for both the installation and maintenance of fire doors and are happy to provide advice in this important area of fire safety.
