What are Steel Fire Exit Doors Good for?
Steel fire exit doors are used for fires escape routes and offer advantages over traditional constructed doors. They are stronger and tougher than wood, PVC or aluminium based fire exits allowing a better containment in a fire. We have many happy customers in Manchester, Bolton, Blackburn and Preston who were impressed with the solid installation of our products.
Fire Door Regulations
Our steel fire exit doors easily meet the requirements of a fire door and are built to recognised standards.

It can resist the power of burning much longer than traditional materials such as wood or PVC as designated by the FD codes.

Fire exit doors are external doors positioned so that in case of an emergency it allows people to exit the premises safely and quickly. The exit door’s horizontal panic bar should be easy to push to open the door outwards; it is a requirement for all fire exits to have a push bar if the exit door is lockable.
Emergency doors can be locked as long as they can be opened internally in an emergency. Some businesses do leave their fire exits unlocked, however it poses as a security risk and can invite unwelcome visitors. To overcome this, our security fire doors can be installed with locks that are lockable externally, yet still function as an exit door in situations that require a quick departure. For added security we include dog bolts, anti-jemmy studs and security door hinges which will help with your insurance premiums and risk assessments.
