Fire Safety Considerations


When selecting interior doors, it's important to consider safety, especially in the context of fire prevention. Fire doors are a crucial element of any home, and they play a significant role in inhibiting the spread of flames.

Regulations may vary depending on your location and the type of building, but there are some general guidelines to keep in mind. Fire doors shouldn't look any different from regular doors, but they have features designed to inhibit the spread of flames, including an intumescent seal.

This seal is designed to expand when temperatures rise above 200°C, tightly sealing the gap between the door and the frame. Fire doors are typically necessary for houses that are over two storeys high. In such cases, every door of a habitable room leading to a stairwell must be a fire door, usually applying to bedrooms and not bathrooms or toilets.


Choosing the Right Interior Doorsets


Now that you have acquired a comprehensive understanding of the types of doors, materials, and the critical consideration of fire safety, let's delve deeper into the process of selecting the perfect interior doorsets for your space. This stage is where your vision meets reality, and you have the opportunity to make choices that align perfectly with your design goals and functional requirements.
