Fire Door Fitting Essential to Optimal Performance in Event of Fire

Posted March 17, 2022 by ajmfiresafetyuk

Correct fire door fitting is essential to ensure the door works properly in the event of a fire.
Fire doors are designed for one main purpose, to save lives. They are manufactured to delay the spread of smoke and fire through a building. Fire door fitting usually takes place during the construction or renovation of multiple occupancy buildings. Today, fire doors are tested to stringent industry standards, but without the correct fire door fitting, they will not provide optimum protection.

The team at AJM Fire Safety are fully accredited fire door installers and are accredited by BM Trada's Q-Mark scheme. They have gone through rigorous training and testing to ensure that they understand the theories regarding preventing the spread of fire and smoke. The team provide a professional fire door fitting service.

The AJM Fire Safety team check all the components of the door, ensuring it meets standards, this includes smoke seal,s intumescent strips, door hardware, emergency signs, glazing and the overhead door closers. This ensures that when a client installs a fire door, they have peace of mind that it will work should they need it to.

The fire door components work together when properly fitted and maintained, which helps them resist smoke and fire for a period of time, depending on the door specifications. Times are usually thirty or sixty minutes, which is ample time for anyone inside the building to get outside to safety.

Fire doors are seen as an integral part of a system, all elements of the system must work together to be fully functional. Once a door is incorrectly specified, incorrectly fitted or not maintained properly, it becomes effective and the risk of fire spreading is increased, making it dangerous for those inside.

Jonny Millard, the General Manager at AJM Fire Safety, said “We always recommend our clients contact an expert fire door fitting team when it comes to their fire door installations, this way they are assured that their building will be protected as long as they follow the fire door recommendations, such as regular inspections, maintenance and ensuring the door is kept closed at all times.”

Some of the most common fire door fitting errors includes missing or incorrectly fitting fire and smoke seals, gaps between the door and the frame and insufficient signs. Along with incorrect hinges and a damaged door. All these faults can be inspected and maintained by the experienced AJM Fire Safety team.
