Fire doors help to contain a fire to a particular compartment or room, thus giving occupants enough time to escape and the fire service enough time to enter the building and tackle the fire. Because fire doors are used in a functional way on a regular basis their importance is often overlooked.

Here are some questions we frequently get asked about fire doors.
What is the BM TRADA Scheme?
Q-Mark is a third party accreditation by BM TRADA. It is proof of AJM Fire Safety’s competence at fitting fire doors as well as demonstration of our commitment to quality.
Do all of my fire doors need closers?
Not all fire doors require a closer. However, most do need one. Doors that are locked such as riser doors and cleaner’s cupboards do not require closers. All other doors do need one. That includes flat entrance doors, cross-corrifor doors and stairwell doors.
Can I paint my fire door?
Yes, in fact at AJM we strongly recommend that you gloss or paint all of your paint grade doors. The reason for this is because timber doors take on and lose moisture depending on the atmospheric conditions. By glossing a door you help keep the moisture content of the door stable. If the door is constantly taking on and losing moisture over time it begins to warp and gaps open up.
Do I need intumescent seals?
Yes, all timber fire doors require intumescent seals. In the event of a fire they expand and seal all of the gaps.
Why do fire doors fail an inspection?
Most fire doors fail an inspection due to poor installation and modifications that affect the integrity of the fire door. The main reasons that fire doors fail is because of gaps and incompatible hardware.
