Fire Doors

Fire doors and windows are passive protection devices as they do not directly act on the fire, but just by being present they limit its propagation; they are complete devices with all the accessories necessary for their operation.

The fire resistance characteristics of fire doors and windows, while not infinite, delay the transmission of heat, flames, and gases generated by the fire to the protected structure or adjacent spaces.

They are made with different materials and designs and are clearly identified by their fire resistance class (quantitatively and qualitatively), which provides the necessary information about how long, measured in minutes, the structure will retain its characteristics in the event of a fire.

In order to ensure their effectiveness, it is essential that the checks required by the standards, which detail all the activities and maintenance schedules, be performed by specialised personnel.
