How to Choose The Right Fire-Rated Doors?

Selecting the right fire-rated door is essential for the safety of your building and its occupants. You should consider:

Fire rating

Fire-rated doors are classified based on the duration for which they can resist fire. The fire rating you choose should be in line with your building regulations


The material should be strong and durable enough to withstand the force of a fire while also complementing the building's aesthetics. Common materials for fire-rated doors include steel, wood, and glass.


The hardware must be compatible with the fire door and meet fire safety standards. Examples of hardware to consider include hinges, locks, and panic bars.


A qualified professional should carry out the installation of your roller shutters to ensure that the door is installed correctly and according to building standards.

What Are The Types of Fire-Rated Doors?

Fire roller shutters are an essential component of any building, providing security, privacy, and aesthetics. When it comes to selecting the right roller shutter door for your needs, there are various types to choose from, each with its unique features and benefits:

Solid-core doors

These doors are typically used in high-traffic areas such as commercial and institutional buildings, where security and fire resistance are paramount.

Hollow-core doors

They are suitable for areas where fire resistance is not a priority, such as areas with low traffic. Hollow-core doors are lightweight and easy to install, making them a popular choice for many applications.

Glass doors

Glass doors are constructed with fire-resistant glass and frames and are suitable for areas where visibility is required. In case of a fire, the intumescent layer expands to create a barrier that blocks smoke and flames from spreading.

Steel doors

Steel doors are constructed with a steel frame and fire-resistant material and are commonly used in industrial and commercial settings, providing a reliable option for buildings that require high levels of protection.

What Are The Common Features of Fire-Rated Doors?

Fire-resistant materials

Fire-rated doors are constructed with fire-resistant materials, such as gypsum, metal, and glass, that enhance their resistance to fire.

Intumescent seals

These seals are placed around the door's frame and expand when exposed to heat, creating a barrier to smoke and flames.

Self-closing mechanism

These doors are equipped with a self-closing mechanism that ensures the door closes automatically. The self-closing mechanism prevents the spread of fire and smoke by closing the door behind occupants as they evacuate the building.

Fire-resistant hardware

The door's hardware, including hinges, locks, and handles, is constructed with fire-resistant materials. These materials are tested and rated for their ability to withstand exposure to high temperatures and prevent the spread of fire through the door's hardware.

Benefits of Fire-Rated Roller Shutters

Fire-rated shutter doors are an essential feature for businesses seeking reliable fire protection within their premises. These doors offer many benefits that help you protect both your employees and your products, including:

  • Fire-rated roller shutters are made from fire-resistant materials like steel and can be integrated with existing fire systems for automatic operations.
  • They will automatically close in the event of a fire, which helps contain and prevent it from spreading to other areas of the building.
  • Fire roller shutters are rated for fire resistance for up to 240 minutes, providing enough time for people to evacuate the building and for emergency services to respond.
  • These doors also provide high-security benefits. Since they are made from thick steel, they are difficult to breach, making them a perfect option for protecting your company against burglaries and break-ins.

How do fire-rated doors work?

Fire-rated doors work by creating a barrier to fire and smoke. These doors are constructed with fire-resistant materials that can withstand high temperatures and prevent the spread of fire while protecting people as they evacuate the building.

The door's frame, hardware, and seals also play a crucial role in fire protection. When exposed to fire, the door's seals expand to fill gaps and prevent smoke from entering the room.



What are the installation requirements for fire-rated doors?

Fire-rated doors must be installed correctly to provide effective fire protection. The installation requirements for fire-rated doors include:

  • The fire shutter door and frame must be set up with the correct clearances to ensure that the intumescent seals function as they should.
  • The door must be installed with a self-closing mechanism that is compatible with the door's weight and size.
  • The correct hardware, including hinges, locks, and handles should be set up, and they must meet fire safety standards.
  • You must check out your building standards and regulations in order to choose the best option and features for your organisation.

What are the materials used in fire-rated doors?


Gypsum is a fire-resistant material that is commonly used in fire-rated doors. It's a natural mineral that is designed to withstand high temperatures and prevent the spread of fire.


Steel is a popular material for fire-rated doors because of its strength and durability. Steel doors can withstand exposure to fire and are typically used in industrial and commercial settings.


Fire-resistant glass is used in fire-rated doors to provide visibility while maintaining high standards of security and fire resistance.


Timber doors can be constructed with fire-resistant materials, such as fire-resistant paint or intumescent coatings, offering a great option for businesses looking for a reliable solution to protect their people and assets.

Why do You Need Maintenance For Your Fire Shutter Doors?

Fire shutters are typically constructed from steel, and they're meant to prevent the spread of fire and smoke within a building. Some of them feature automated security alarm systems that trigger a fire situation, and smoke curtains help direct smoke and heat towards the nearest extraction points.

It is crucial to prioritise the safety of your staff while protecting your products. To comply with regulations, you must ensure that your business adheres to the law. Failure to meet strict standards with your fire doors could impact your insurance..

Neglecting proper maintenance of your fire shutter door could lead to revenue loss in a fire emergency, as well as jeopardising the safety of your employees. By ensuring that your fire shutter doors are regularly maintained, you can protect both your goods and your staff.
