More about the Fire Door Blanks Collection

Fire door blanks are typically made from various materials, such as solid timber or composite. A solid core door blank is manufactured from a high-density, fire-resistant timber species which is used to create a solid core and can be further treated to improve fire resistance.

Composite cores combine layers of different materials, such as mineral or gypsum cores sandwiched between layers of timber or particleboard, to create a fire-resistant door blank.

A fire rated door is designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke throughout the building or room, allowing the occupants time to either escape or extinguish the flames.

Finishing Your Fire Doors

Door blanks must be customized and finished on-site to fit the specific requirements of the installation. This process may involve cutting the fire door to size, installing hinges, locks, and other hardware, and applying the necessary surface finish (paint, veneer, or laminate). It is crucial to follow the manufacturer's guidelines and building regulations when working with fire doors to ensure the completed fire door assembly meets the required fire safety criteria.

Keep in mind that fire door blanks alone do not provide the full fire protection required; they must be combined with compatible a door frame, seals, and hardware to form a complete fire door assembly that complies with the appropriate fire resistance standards and building regulations.

Intended Use: Residential and Commercial

Our fire doors are intended for internal use, whether that be in a residential property or in commercial buildings and offices. With the door itself needing customisation, the finishing options are endless, which means you can install a door suitable in both modern and period properties. You may also leave the door minimal in appearance, which is often seen in corridors within office buildings.

Benefits Of Fire Door Blanks

Fire door blanks offer several benefits in both residential and commercial properties, contributing to the overall fire safety and protection of the building and its occupants.

Fire Resistance

Door blanks are designed to resist the spread of fire for a specified period, typically ranging from 30 minutes to 120 minutes or more. This helps to contain the fire within a compartment, slowing its spread and reducing the damage caused.

Smoke Containment

In addition to providing fire resistance, fire door blanks often have smoke seals that help prevent the spread of smoke throughout the building. Smoke can be just as dangerous as the fire itself, so containing it is crucial for occupant safety.

Increased Evacuation Time

By slowing the spread of fire and smoke, fire door blanks provide occupants with more time to evacuate the building safely. This can be especially important in large commercial properties where more time may be needed to evacuate all occupants.

Compliance With Building Regulations

Installing fire door blanks helps ensure that a building complies with local fire safety codes and regulations. This is not only important for occupant safety but can also have legal and insurance implications.

Property Protection

By containing the fire within a specific area, fire door blanks help to minimize property damage and the resulting costs of repair and reconstruction. This can be particularly beneficial in commercial properties, where extensive damage could have significant financial implications.

Bespoke Sizes

Whilst we are able to accommodate bespoke sizes, a lot of our fire door blanks can be trimmed to meet your individual requirements. It is recommended that you use a professional tradesman to ensure the door blanks are installed correctly.

Questions about Fire Door Blanks

Can you paint a fire door blank?

Yes, you can paint a fire door blank, but there are some important considerations to keep in mind to ensure that the door's fire-resistant properties are not compromised:

  • Use compatible paint: It is crucial to use a paint that is compatible with the door's material and does not negatively impact its fire-resistant properties. Water-based or intumescent paints are typically recommended for fire doors, as they do not interfere with the door's performance. Intumescent paint expands when exposed to high temperatures, providing an additional layer of protection.
  • Follow manufacturer's guidelines: Always consult the manufacturer's guidelines or consult with a fire door specialist before painting a fire door blank. They can provide valuable information on the appropriate paint types and application methods to ensure the door's fire resistance is maintained.
  • Proper preparation: Before painting, ensure the door surface is clean, dry, and free of any debris. If the door has any existing paint or varnish, it may need to be sanded down or removed to create a suitable surface for the new paint.
  • Avoid painting over seals and hardware: Be careful not to paint over intumescent strips, smoke seals, and fire-rated hardware, as this can impair their function and compromise the door's fire resistance. Mask off these areas if necessary to protect them during the painting process.
  • Apply paint evenly: Apply the paint evenly in thin coats, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next one. This will help ensure a smooth and consistent finish that does not compromise the door's fire resistance.
  • Regular maintenance: Inspect the painted fire door regularly to ensure that the paint is in good condition and not peeling or chipping. Any damage should be repaired promptly to maintain the door's fire-resistant properties.

Regular inspection and maintenance of the painted door are also essential to ensure it continues to provide the necessary protection in case of a fire emergency. Read our full article about how to paint your fire doors.
