Ensuring Safety with Compliant Fire Doors

A Bournemouth Perspective

As a drywall construction systems company based in Bournemouth, we are deeply entrenched in the world of building safety. A significant part of our commitment to safety involves understanding and installing compliant fire doors within our drywall systems. Fire doors play a crucial role in any building’s safety strategy, acting as a robust defence mechanism against the devastating and often tragic effects of fire.

Drywall construction is a widely popular method in the UK due to its versatility, speed of installation, and cost-effectiveness. However, the integral role of fire doors within this system cannot be overstated. Integrating compliant fire doors into our drywall systems not only enhances the overall safety of the structures we build but also ensures we meet and exceed all legal and regulatory requirements.

Fire Door Installation

Buildings Fabric

Fire doors provide essential protection within a building’s fabric. By holding back flames and smoke, they allow occupants more time to escape and firefighters to prevent the spread of fire. Compliant fire doors in drywall construction systems are not just about meeting building regulations; they’re about saving lives.

Intumescent materials play a key role in compliant fire doors. When exposed to high temperatures, these materials expand, forming a seal that helps prevent the spread of smoke and fire. This intumescent seal is a vital component in fire doors, as it ensures their ability to withstand fire and provide a safe exit route.

Passive Fire Protection

High Quality Materials

In the drywall construction industry, we have a responsibility to ensure that all our projects are compliant and safe. This means sourcing high-quality, certified fire doors, installing them correctly, and maintaining them to ensure their ongoing effectiveness. It also means staying up-to-date with the latest developments in fire safety technology and regulations, including innovations in intumescent materials and fire door design.

The role of a fire door in a drywall system is not just to compartmentalise a fire, but also to provide a secure and safe exit route for occupants. Fire doors should open easily and provide a clear, unobstructed path to safety. They should also be clearly marked and easily identifiable, even in low-visibility conditions caused by smoke.
