We get a lot of questions about why you might need a fire door. The threat of fire is really one thing that every building owner should take very seriously. Electrical wiring, the activities of tenants, and even natural calamities could all lead to a much-dreaded fire.
What exactly does a fire door do for your building? It’s pretty simple, really. A fire door is necessary to help control the spread of fire within a building. Since you can never predict when a fire will break out, you must do everything necessary to prevent its rapid spread in case it does happen to your building.
A fire can go from one room to another very quickly, and from one building structure to another. When a fire breaks out in full daylight, it’s often the case that a level-headed person near the source of the conflagration will make use of a fire extinguisher and put it out. If a building has been compartmentalized by the strategic use of a fire door in certain rooms, the fire remains small and easy to put out because it is prevented from going from one room to another.
That’s why passive fire prevention measures like the installation of a fire door and fire door inspections are so important. Safety precautions like putting in the right fire door and conducting regular fire door inspections help keep your building safe even during those times when you’re not there to keep an eye on it.
