Is beauty even a concern when producing a fire rated steel door ?
Speaking of fire rated steel doors, what would be the first word that comes to your mind?
Safety, strength, fireproofing, lifesaving, etc. Those are the possible answers that we could all imagine. But how about beauty? A word that may not occur to a lot of people when they think of fire rated steel doors. So here comes the second question: ‘Is beauty an actual concern for fire rated door manufacturers?’ And the answer is absolutely yes.
Obviously, it is quite normal for many people not to associate fire doors with beauty or aesthetics. As part of a passive fire protection system, fire rated steel doors are paid more attention to it’s safety ratings, and beauty does not seem to help improve this characteristic at all.
However, the pursuit of beauty shouldn’t be ignored. Especially in some scenes, such as schools, hospitals and shopping centers, a beautiful fire door is demanded. As a manufacturer who value customer experience a lot, we have been striving to achieve them both. Check out the efforts we have made.
