In so many countries nowadays, people start to pay more attention to fire safety around themselves, especially in their own house. Also along with the economics growing up in recent year, people is now able to afford better doors in the house.
For a wooden fire rated door, a fire rating range from 30-120 minutes is usually provided by manufacturers, but how shall we select the right doors in our home?
Basically 90 and 120 minutes fire rated wooden door are used in commercial buildings, mostly 5-star hotels or high class office building. With a higher floor height, a stronger fire door would be selected.
As for the house keepers, in most of situations FD30 is enough. Despite fireproof, smoke control is the most important function of a fire doors. In nearly all the fire emergencies, smoke damages more people than fire itself.
The reason why we don’t select a higher rating is because 30 minutes is enough for people to get out of their house, a longer fire rating will certainly make a better protection but consider of the cost of fire doors, FD30 would be best choice for home keepers .
