Fire doors have two important functions in a fire, when closed they form a barrier to stop the spread of fire and when opened they provide a means of escape.
A well designed timber fire door will delay the spread of fire and smoke without causing too much hindrance to the movement of people and goods. We Asico have our fire rated doors assessed by subjecting to a test procedure as specified in BS476-22:1987 or BS EN1634-1:2014. The main Asico wood fire doors categories are FD30, FD60, FD90 and FD120 fire doors which offer 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes fire protection. The woodworking association BM TRADA uses a system know as Q-Mark, in which a series of labels is inserted into the door to indicate the fire rating time, member details, the scope of certification during specification and installation, and service history.
