Explore our extensive range of Fire Doors
Fire Doors are becoming more popular, due to our increasing health and safety conscious society and building regulations.

Fire Doors can be essential in certain renovations and building works. An architect or building inspector will be able to advise you if they are necessary within larger builds, however, within your home they may not be a requirement but when you are replacing doors it is always an option to consider.
Fire doors are an essential component in commercial settings but increasingly homeowners are looking to improve fire safety in their domestic environments by investing in fire resistant doors at home. In general, home owners are not legally required to fit fire doors but with a exponential rise in health and safety awareness over recent years, more and more households are choosing to fit fire doors as a precautionary measure against fire and smoke damage.
Fire doors have the primary function of protecting individuals and infrastructure within the home by lessening the damage caused by spread of fire and smoke. Fire doors are designed and tested to maximise protection from fire and smoke by effectively creating 'through compartments' within your property.This allows occupants additional time to escape in the event of a fire.
Fire doors are constructed in a specific way to fulfil the requirements of the safety regulations and are therefore extremely robust and generally heavier than a standard domestic door. It is advised therefore that if you are having fire doors installed, you seek the expertise of a professional joiner to make sure that the integrity of the door is maintained by correct installation. A joiner will also be able to advise on the correct hinges and additional fittings that will need to be included to comply with safety regulations.
Adding internal fire doors to your home does not mean compromising on style. Fire doors have been developed to not only provide you with protection but to blend beautifully with your domestic decor so that you have both security and style combined. Our extensive range of fire doors are available in a broad choice of finishes like oak, pine and walnut, sleek white or contemporary grey. We offer a large range of design options once you have decided on colour and finish, included glazed fire doors, moulded panel fire doors, through to traditional and ultra modern options.
Each fire door is categorised with a British Standard Fire Resistance (integrity) Rating, with each fire rating corresponding to the estimated number of minutes that the door can resist fire. Fire door ratings range from FD 30 (30 minutes) through to FD 120 (120 minutes).
Fireproof doors can be essential in some renovations and building works and an architect or building inspector would be able to advise if they are necessary within larger builds, however within your home they may not be a necessary requirement but when you are replacing doors it is always an option to consider. Fire doors, when fitted correctly, have the function of protecting the people within the home by limiting the damage caused by the fire and smoke for a set amount of time depending on the internal fire doors you choose.
There are the standard ones that last for up to 30 minutes and the more robust fireproof doors that can hold the fire and its effects for up to 60 minutes. Fire doors are composed in a very structured way with hard wearing and durable materials making them very heavy and more difficult to install. It is advised that if you are having fire rated doors installed that they are fitted by a professional joiner to make sure that they are correctly fitted and work to their full potential. You may like the idea of adding additional security to your home for your family but be thinking using internal fire doors means that you have to compromise on the style of your home or refurbishments but this couldn't be further from the truth.

In certain cases there is a requirement for fire doors to have a longer resistance time of 90 or 120 minutes and in some instances, a door is required to be a fire and smoke door. An S Suffix to a fire door rating shows that it is a fire and smoke controlled fire door. There is a good quality guide on the Fire Door Safety Week website which also covers the regulations around commercial and office properties too, which are specific to fire doors fitted in those buildings.

British Standard: Minimum Fire Resistance Rating Number of minutes that the door can resist fire
FD 30 30 minutes
FD 60 60 minutes
FD 90 90 minutes
FD 120 120 minutes

Fire Door Regulations

Building Regulations provide guidance as to the minimum building standards needed to be achieved and will reference test requirements and performance for fire door assembly.
