Recommendations for choosing a fire door
Types. All fire doors are divided into several types by the regulatory framework. They differ in the limits of fire resistance and smoke and gas tightness. This data is encrypted in the marking.
- The letter part carries information about the nature of the protection. Loss of integrity is indicated by the letter E, loss of thermal insulation ability – I, loss of resistance to smoke and gas permeation – S.
- The numerical designation in the marking indicates the time of resistance to a certain negative impact.
- For example, a door marked E60 / I30 / S15 will remain intact for 60 minutes, thermal insulation will last for 30 minutes, and gas and smoke will not penetrate for 15 minutes.
Design. Manufacturers produce many different designs of fire doors. The choice depends on the features of the structure and the preferences of the buyer. On the market there are:
- blind and glazed models;
- single and double leaf;
- boxes with and without a threshold;
- left and right hand options.
Materials. For the manufacture of fire doors, manufacturers use several materials.
- Metal models are most often made of steel or aluminum. Sometimes cladding is carried out using galvanized roofing.
- Fiberglass doors have a high resistance to open fire, but the frame is made of durable steel reinforcement covered with heat-resistant paint.
- Some types of wood also have fire-resistant properties. But manufacturers can achieve high fire performance only with the help of special impregnations.
Box. There are three frame options used in fireproof door blocks.
- The corner design is easy and flexible to install. Platbands are attached from the outside. This is the most popular option on the Russian market.
- The inner or end frame is mounted in the doorway without the use of platbands. The wall or adjacent surface is pre-finished.
- The cover box is installed with an overlap on one side. Irregularities and gaps are hidden behind the inner and outer platbands. Such doors are considered the most fashionable and beautiful, but they are expensive.
