Our Range of Fire Doors
In the UK there are strict regulations which apply to the use of fire doors in both new and existing buildings. If you are working on a new build, or making alterations to a building (including adding an extension or changing the use of the building), then current Building Regulations will apply.
The rules differ between commercial and domestic properties. In general, if a building is divided into ‘compartments’, then fire doors are required to be fitted to protect escape routes such as staircases and corridors.
In a home that has more than two levels, every door that leads to a stairwell must be a fire door if the door connects the stairwell to a habitable room (meaning a room that is not a bathroom or w/c). Fire doors are also required for if a building has a loft conversion. If the house has a door connecting it to an integral garage, then that should be a fire door, and there should be fire doors to separate residential areas from commercial areas in mixed use properties.
For compartment walls that separate two buildings, the fire door should be rated the same as the fire resistance of the wall, with a minimum rating of FD60. In other settings, FD30 is acceptable. There are some specific situations where FD20 is allowed, but these are rare, and best-practice recommendations suggest FD30 as a minimum in all circumstances.
A Wide Selection of Internal Fire Doors
At Vivid Doors we have a large selection of FD30 rated doors, including oak panel doors and glazed doors, as well as walnut, pitch pine and hardwood doors to suit almost any setting. These doors are offered in a variety of finishes, including white, natural stained wood, ash grey, chocolate grey and light grey. We also have a selection of unfinished doors that are supplied ready to treat and paint on site to match the rest of your décor.
We have fire doors in most imperial and metric sizes to suit standard door openings. Most doors come with generous lippings that will allow you to trim the door down to size to suit difficult openings. The size of the lippings varies from door to door, and details are provided on the product description page.
