Find Fire Door Suppliers and Installation on the Gold Coast
Fire doors play a vital role in any building’s fire passive protection system. They rarely see use except in the case of an emergency but are an important safety feature in your building’s structure. You are responsible for the upkeep, maintenance, and dependability of your fire doors. Over time, fire doors may offer less and less protection as they age, so it’s a good idea to have a dependable company visit your facility and do a complete check on your fire doors. It’s a good idea for insurance protection alone, because if you did have a fire and your doors were out of date or not up to code, it’s a compelling reason for an insurance company not to pay for damages.

What you need to know about your fire doors on the Gold Coast
Fire doors are used primarily to stop the spread of fire or dangerous smoke – remember smoke is what kills most people in a fire situation. They also act as another means of exit during an emergency. Making sure they work properly is very important. Any lock on a fire door must be self-latching. It needs to be compliant with all relevant standards. The only hardware that you can use on these doors needs to be fire rated itself. Here’s another factor that is sometimes missed by people. You need proper signage. Fire doors need to be labelled correctly to be certified. Official guidelines say signage need to say three things: 1) Fire Safety Door, 2) Do Not Obstruct, and 3) Do Not Keep Open.
These last two items are important to mention. Often when fire doors are in basements or less travelled areas, people may be tempted to store items in front of them. There are often stories in the news where people were unable to use the fire doors because of obstructions. Leaving a fire door open isn’t a good idea either. On a hot day, you might be tempted to pry it open for a warm breezeâ€”but in an emergency, the door’s protective qualities would be rendered useless.
