All of us who use or occupy any building have a right to expect that we will be safely protected should a fire break out. Sadly this is not always the case. Something may fail within the fabric of the building, or with the fire safety devices and tragedy occurs, causing death or serious injury
Fire doors are part of a building's PASSIVE fire protection system, an essential requirement for public buildings, offices and factories.
The simple purpose of a fire door in every day use is just as any other door. However, since a breakout of fire is never predictable, the fire door, unlike any other door, must then perform its prime purpose - to protect lives and offer protection to the remainder of the building and to other buildings.
