Smoke travels at seven metres per
second, faster than most people can run. Its heat and
toxins mean it can kill within seconds. It is therefore
critical that fire doors work effectively to prevent
loss of life.
It has been found that 61% of deaths involving fire were caused by smoke inhalation and that one in 12 fire doors fail or are wedged open.
The definition of a fire door is a door assembly which is designed to hold back fire and smoke for a designated period, and has been tested under conditions described in British Standard 476: Part 22.
Fire doors provide a barrier to prevent the spread of smoke and flame. They need to be kept closed at all times, unless held open by a professional electrical close system which releases the door on activation of a fire alarm.
