What are Moulded Fire Doors?
Moulded fire doors are specifically designed to withstand fire, slowing its spread and providing vital extra minutes for evacuation. Crafted from composite materials, these doors are meticulously moulded to exhibit a wood grain appearance, merging the essence of traditional wood with the robustness of advanced fire-resistant technology.
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.
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.
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.
