Read on to discover how a double fire door ensures safety and protection in commercial spaces.

What is a double fire door?

A double fire door is a door system, designed for use in commercial spaces to ensure fire safety measures. Unlike regular doors, double fire doors consist of two individual doors installed side by side. They have fire resistant panic hardware and seals to prevent the spread of flames, smoke and toxic gases during a fire emergency.

Double fire doors are a crucial component of fire compartmentation, helping to contain and isolate fires, thereby allowing occupants more time to evacuate safely and reducing property damage. They are commonly found in commercial and industrial buildings, helping to protect lives and property in the event of a fire.

At Plas-shop we supply double fire doors that can be customised to meet your exact requirements. Our double fire door is pre-hung in the frame and ready-to-go, with panic hardware installed.

What are the key features of double fire doors?

Double fire doors are crucial for fire safety in buildings. Here are some key features of double fire doors:

  1. Fire resistance: Double fire doors are designed and constructed to withstand exposure to high temperatures and flames. They are typically rated for a specific period of fire resistance, such as 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or 90 minutes, depending on their intended use and local building codes.


  1. Self-closing mechanism: These doors are equipped with self-closing mechanisms, such as door closers or spring hinges, that ensure the doors automatically close after they have been opened. This feature helps prevent the spread of fire and smoke by keeping the doors closed during a fire event.


  1. Smoke seals: Double fire doors are equipped with intumescent or smoke seals around their edges. These seals expand when exposed to heat, creating a tight seal that prevents the passage of smoke and hot gases, further enhancing fire containment.


  1. Fire-rated hardware: All hardware components used on double fire doors, including locks, handles, hinges, and latches, should be fire-rated and compatible with the fire door assembly. This ensures that the integrity of the door is maintained during a fire.


These features collectively help double fire doors serve their primary purpose, which is to slow the spread of fire and smoke, allowing occupants more time to safely evacuate and reducing property damage.
