All internal fire doors need to adhere to the following regulations:
⁃ They must be heavier than normal internal doors.
⁃ Door closers must be fitted so that they close automatically.
⁃ Seals must be fitted around the edges of the doors so that they can expand to block gaps (and prevent smoke from spreading).
⁃ Fire-resistant glazing must be fitted into windows on the doors.
⁃ Handles and other fittings on the doors must be fire-resistant to ensure they can be opened safely in an emergency.
An internal fire door FD30 should resist fire for 30 minutes. A FD60 fire door should resist fire for 60 minutes. The amount of time it takes for a fire door to actually resist a fire depends on the circumstances, including where the fire is in relation to the door, the burn rate, and what is being burned at the time.
