Effective Fire Protection Requires Essential Ironmongery

Fire Door Ironmongery

To create an effective barrier to fire not only is a specialist door required but the ironmongery too; the hardware (hinges, locks, latches) that holds the door in position needs to have specific properties to be fit for purpose.

Having a higher melting point than standard hinges, Fire Door Hinges also fit closer to the frame.

Designed to ensure the door remains attached to the frame for the designated time period, allowing for escape.

Reacting to the heat of fire the pads or sealant inflate/ swell - creating another barrier to smoke and heat.

They are to be placed in any voids between the door or door frames and ironmongery.  




Fire doors and the ironmongery that hold them in place are known as a means of Passive Fire Protection.

They do not actively stop the fire but act as a way of restricting or slowing the progress of fire, smoke, and heat allowing people to escape.

In order to effectively slow down the progress of fire and hold the door in position, fire door hinges, latches and locks must be able to withstand much higher temperatures than a standard hinge.
