It is common now for fire doors to be compulsory in a lot of buildings due to fire regulations, so make sure your home or workplace is prepared with the vast selection of interior fire doors online at Arnold Laver.
Fire doors work by sealing off compartmentalised buildings to stop the spread of smoke and fire from one area to another. These life-saving doors play two roles in helping to keep people safe: when closed, they create a barrier between you and danger, and when open they provide you with an escape route.
Some types of fire doors include intumescent seals. These seals remain open under normal circumstances; however, when they are exposed to heat they expand and therefore cut off any gap between the fire and people on the other side. Many are also fitted with cold smoke seals to stop the spread of deadly smoke.
At Arnold Laver we stock a number of glazed internal fire doors which allow the spread of natural light into rooms which may lack it. Regardless of their glass components, these doors still boast the same properties as other full-wood designs. You can also choose between pre-finished or finished doors, meaning you can either varnish them to suit your home or buy one ready to be hinged straight away.
