How do you install a fire door?

Fire doors are fitted using a similar method to a standard door. However, there are certain elements of the installation that need to be accounted for including:

  • The structural opening must have an equal or more fire resistance to the door set to be installed.
  • The perimeter between the structural opening and the door needs to be fully sealed using fire rated silicone.
  • Metal packers and adjusters must be used at all times.
  • Additional items cannot be added or removed as this negates the fire rating of the door.

There are additional requirements that must be adhered to in order to successfully install a fire door. For more information and support regarding fire doors, contact our installation team.
