The ironmongery of a fire rated door (the fixtures and fittings e.g. hinges, locks, handles, closers etc) is as important to the effectiveness of a fire rated door as the actual construction of the fire door itself. Indeed, for fire doors to retain their certification, they must have compatible and certified ironmongery .
Under The RRO 2005 (The Regulatory Reform(Fire Safety) Order) building owners have a duty to ensure, and prove if necessary, that all fire and escape doors have the correct hardware fitted and are appropriately maintained.
Having the wrong ironmongery fitted to a fire door, or installed incorrectly, can result in the failure of that fire door and / or breach of the The RRO 2005 regulations.
Our range comprises stainless steel for the essential elements to assist holding the door leaf in place. Handles/knobs which are not vital to the fire resistance of the door can be made of other materials and or finishes, eg. silk anodised aluminium as well as brightly coloured steel-cored nylon products. Whatever your requirement, and whatever your decor, Building Life (Fire Doors) Ltd has the product to match.
