Fire Door Safety for Commercial Premises
Every organisation needs to have a clear and effective strategy for the prevention and containment of fires. Placing the right kind of fire extinguishers across your premises is a very wise move, plus certain areas should also have modern fire doors installed for extra protection.
How do fire doors work?
We’ve all seen fire doors, as they can be found everywhere from offices and shops to schools and hospitals, but do you know exactly how they keep us safe?
Their design is relatively simple yet hugely functional, as the doors are fitted with intumescent strips that expand when they reach a certain temperature. This seals the gap between the door and the frame, stopping the passage of smoke and holding back the fire more than a normal door.
Why invest in fire doors?
Below are the main reasons to have fire doors installed throughout offices, retail units, industrial sites and other working environments.
Invest in a fire door safety service
Fire doors bring so much reassurance to business owners, employees and visitors alike, plus they may be more affordable than you think. If you need new fire doors installing, the specialists at Intertech Contracts are fully accredited under the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme for fire door installation and fire door maintenance.
We can also provide ongoing maintenance for new and existing fire doors, which involves regular inspections to check that they meet current British Standards and the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO).
Our fire door safety inspection service also includes a detailed report. This will either give your fire doors our mark of approval or highlight any issues, which we can then rectify for a very competitive price.
Protect your people with fire doors
No matter what the size of your premises or the nature of your industry, fire safety is of paramount importance. Having fire doors installed in key areas and investing in regular inspections by an accredited company will ensure that your people are protected as much as possible in the event of a fire, which brings long-term peace of mind.

If you have a commercial space under construction, you may need to consider hiring an interior designer or an interior decorator. They both seem to be very similar professions, so how would you know which one to hire for your specific needs?
