A fire door is a vital safety device engineered to save lives and property. Its correct specification, fitting and maintenance are the responsibility of each and every person involved in the process from specification to maintenance.
British & International Standards include (but are not limited to) the following:
BS 8214:2008 - Code of practice for fire door assemblies. This standard gives recommendations for the specification, installation and maintenance of fire doors. The recommendations are applicable only to hinged or pivoted pedestrian doorsets, door assemblies, or door leaves of any material, fitted into frames of any material.
BS EN 15269-20:2009 - Extended application of test results for fire resistance and/ or smoke control for door, shutter and openable window assemblies, including their elements of building hardware. Smoke control for hinged and pivoted steel, timber and metal framed glazed doorsets
BS EN 15269-1:2010 - Extended application of test results for fire resistance and/or smoke control for door, shutter and openable window assemblies, including their elements of building hardware. This standard gives general guidelines on producing an extended application report based on the evaluation of one or more fire resistance and/or smoke control tests. It also helps to identify the best selection of test specimens required to cover a wide range of product variations.
BS EN 1634-2:2008 - Fire resistance and smoke control tests for door, shutter and openable window assemblies and elements of building hardware. Fire resistance characterisation test for elements of building hardware
