Why Commercial Fire Rated Doors Are a Worthwhile Investment
Imagine that there’s a fire in your building. All fires have an origin point of some sort, which means that at the start at least, the fire is contained to a single room or part of your building. Of course, the threat with fires is how quickly they can spread. However, what if you could impede the spread of the flames simply by just closing a few commercial fire rated doors?
Therein lies the huge benefit of installing fire rated doors in Australia. At Ashes Fire Group, we work with clients to design well-insulated metal doors, durable steel door frames and effective seals. These elements create both fire rated sliding door and latching door designs that can act as powerful barriers or blocks against the spread of fire. A fire that would otherwise spread down hallways or into new rooms can be stalled for extensive periods by a fire rated door installation.
Using commercial fire rated doors in this fashion provides many benefits. First off, by containing a fire to the smallest portion of the building as possible, you provide your building occupants with clearer paths out of the building. Keeping these escape routes open is essential to making sure everyone gets out of the building safely. Secondly, containing the spread of the fire minimises the damage to your property, potentially saving everything from server rooms to valuable appliances or equipment. Finally, a fire that has been effectively contained will be easier for firefighters to combat and extinguish.
