What are Fire Doors
Fire doors are doors which have been given a fire-resistance rating. They are used as part of passive fire prevention systems to reduce the spread of fire and smoke between areas, or compartments, of a building. They are designed to be kept closed (they have closers which pull the doors shut once resistance from a person is removed), and must be checked every 6 months to ensure that the fire retardant seal is not compromised and that the door functions as it should. Fire doors must be installed in hotels, schools, blocks of flats, houses of multiple occupation (HMOs) and other public buildings.
What Is a Fire Rating?
The fire-resistance rating is either FD30 or FD60 (or FD30s/FD60s). Many internal fire doors, including those in our range, tend to be FD30 rated. FD60-rated doors are usually used in larger buildings where it may take longer to escape a fire, as these will offer fire protection for a minimum of 60 minutes. Some doors have an FD30s or FD60s fire rating, which means they also protect from cold smoke, through the use of smoke brushes and intumescent strips.
Fire doors can be made from many different materials and components, including glass, steel, timber and aluminium. Here at Vibrant. we specialise in solid wood fire doors, including pine, walnut and solid oak fire doors. And fire rated doors don't have to be boring either! With a vast selection available, including glazed fire doors, pre finished, smooth white primed and unfinished options, all FD30 rated, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to adding a bit of style to your home.
Internal fire doors are the perfect choice for many homes. They provide peace of mind in protecting your family in case of a fire in your property, keeping smoke and flames at bay and buying you time to escape to safety.
FD30 Internal Fire Doors
All fire door products are 44mm thick and FD30 rated meaning they can prevent the passage of fire and smoke for a full 30 minutes minimum, giving you time to leave the building safely and helping to protect against the inhalation of dangerous fumes.
Vibrant Doors offers an extensive range of high quality FD30 rated internal fire doors suitable for use in housing or light commercial use. Our interior fire doors are available in a wide range of materials including oak, rustic oak, walnut, pine and solid white primed. We strive to ensure you have an option that will meet your needs.
Our Solid Wood Internal Fire Doors Range
As with all our doors, we use only the highest-quality material in our fire rated doors, so you can be sure that they are built to last. We have solid wood internal fire doors in a range of styles, materials, colours and glazing options, designed to complement any interior. Our fire door range is suitable for use throughout the home.
Oak, Walnut and Glazed Fire Doors
Our internal oak fire doors range is amongst our most popular, with oak glazed fire doors a fantastic new addition. This versatile choice achieves the full FD30 rating, but also allows lots of light to pass through. Within our range we have both unfinished oak fire doors and prefinished options which can save time in decorating on site.
We also have a wide range of walnut fire doors with glass panels available too. Walnut doors continue to grow in popularity, and so we are glad to be able to offer unglazed as well as glazed FD30 fire doors in this material. Not only are they attractive and stylish; they'll also help to keep your home and family safe, and help you meet building regulations.
All internal glazed and glass fire doors feature specialist toughened, fire-rated glass panels to provide the optimum level of safety, while still allowing light through your home.
Pine doors continue to be popular, and we have several clear pine fire door products to support our growing range, including 4 panel and 6 panel options.
Fire Door Styles and Sizes
Our internal fire-rated doors are available in a huge range of styles, from Shaker to French, 4-panel to 6-panel, rustic to contemporary, glazed or unglazed.
