FAQs About Moulded Fire Doors

Q1: How effective are moulded fire doors in preventing the spread of fire?

Moulded fire doors are incredibly effective when integrated into a fire safety strategy. They are designed to resist fire for a specified duration, typically 30 or 60 minutes (FD30 or FD60 rated), depending on the product specification and testing.


Q2: How are moulded fire doors installed?

Professional installation is crucial to ensure optimal performance. A certified installer will consider factors such as door frame integrity, correct sealing, and appropriate hardware to guarantee compliance with fire safety regulations. For precise sizing, most fire doors in our collection allow trimming on three edges, although it is essential to leave the top edge intact and untrimmed.

Moulded fire doors should be installed in accordance with the fire certification. Fire resistance is guaranteed only when the door is installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, which includes the integration of intumescent strips. A label, situated on the top edge of your fire door, attests to its compliance with type testing pursuant to BS 476 Part 22. It is imperative that this label remains intact and unaltered.


Q3: What is the lifespan of a moulded fire door?

With appropriate care and maintenance, moulded fire doors can last several decades. Periodic checks and professional servicing ensure longevity and sustained performance.


Moulded Fire Doors vs. Solid Wood Fire Doors: Making the Best Choice for Your Safety

When exploring fire door options, there are two prominent choices: moulded fire doors and solid wood fire doors. Both provide substantial fire resistance and aesthetic appeal, but the right choice depends on understanding their respective benefits and drawbacks.


Benefits of Moulded Fire Doors

  1. Cost-Effective: Generally more affordable than solid wood counterparts, providing budget-friendly fire safety solutions.
  2. Design Flexibility: Offer a diverse range of styles, colours, and finishes, granting you significant creative leeway.
  3. Consistency: The moulding process ensures uniformity in design and finish, providing a consistent appearance.
  4. Lightweight: Easier to handle and install due to their comparatively lighter weight, potentially reducing installation costs.


Disadvantages of Moulded Fire Doors

  1. Perceived Quality: Sometimes perceived as lower quality due to their synthetic composition and lighter weight.
  2. Durability Concerns: While robust, they may lack the sheer physical endurance of solid wood doors in some aspects, such as resistance to physical damage.
  3. Limited Repairability: Damage to the door surface can be challenging to repair seamlessly.


Benefits of Solid Wood Fire Doors

  1. Natural Aesthetic: The genuine wood grain, texture, and appearance offer an unmatched, premium aesthetic.
  2. Robust Durability: Solid wood is naturally strong and resilient, potentially offering superior longevity and resistance to wear and tear.
  3. Repairability: Damage can often be repaired with relative ease, extending the lifespan of the door.
  4. Acoustic Insulation: Typically provide excellent sound insulation, an often-overlooked advantage in various settings.


Disadvantages of Solid Wood Fire Doors

  1. Cost: Generally more expensive due to the materials and craftsmanship involved.
  2. Weight: Heavier and, consequently, may require more robust hardware and a sturdier frame for installation.
  3. Environmental Impact: Unless sourced sustainably, the use of solid wood can have a more significant environmental footprint.
  4. Maintenance: May require more frequent maintenance to uphold their appearance and integrity.


Making Your Choice

Both moulded and solid wood fire doors are valid choices, safeguarding your spaces against the unpredictable nature of fire while offering aesthetically pleasing designs.

Opt for Moulded Fire Doors if: You seek a cost-effective, stylish, and lightweight solution with varied design options.

Select Solid Wood Fire Doors if: Your priorities lean towards a natural aesthetic, enhanced durability, and acoustic insulation, and you’re prepared for a heftier investment.
