Educational establishments such as schools, colleges, nurseries and universities are often a harsh environment for fire doors. This is because of the high footfall which means these fire doors are often in constant use. However, these fire doors in education settings are also necessary for the safety of the people within your building.
Further to this, schools, universities and other education establishments have a responsibility under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. These educational facilities must ensure that their staff and pupils are safe in case of a fire or emergency. The state of your fire doors falls within this responsibility. It is given the specific reference FSO.
Good fire door installation is important as the fire door ensures that if a fire broke out in the building, it would be contained to one area. A fire door that has been well installed with keep the fire and smoke trapped for a period of time. This allows the students and teachers within the building to get out or be rescued easier. The fire would also be easier to tackle.
All fire doors must be fire rated. When we deal with fire door installation in education establishments, we will check the rating you require. The two main ratings of fire doors are FD30, which offer 30 minutes if protection, or FD60, which offer 60 minutes of fire safety.
