Fire Doors FAQs

Fire door installation costs can vary depending on the building and its specifications. The price of a fire door includes the door itself but also the professional installation service which is necessary to ensure that the door meets the necessary health and safety requirements.

Fire doors are doors that are resistant to fire up to a certain point—or for a certain amount of time. They are usually made of a combination of glass, steel, aluminium, wood, and gypsum, and feature fire-resistant seals.

Fire doors feature an FD code which refers to how many minutes of fire the door can withstand. A fire door with an FD30 rating can withstand 30 minutes, for example.

Depending on the size and layout of your building, one type of door might be more appropriate than another. If the door code features an ‘s’ after it (i.e. FD30s), it means that it’s also smoke resistant.

A fire door is required in all commercial buildings if it will help stop a fire from spreading and protect an escape route. For example, if your building has multiple floors, you need to install fire doors to ensure access to the stairwell.

All non-residential buildings need to be compliant with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order: 2005. This states that all offices require fire doors unless they are particularly small. Fire doors are particularly necessary in larger office buildings with long escape routes that need to be protected. Consult one of our experts to find out exactly where fire doors should be installed in your office.

According to current Building Regulations, all newly installed fire doors should be at least FD30S, which means they can resist fire for more than 30 minutes and are also smoke-resistant. When installed, the supplier should give you a certificate that confirms the door meets these standards.

Building Regulations state that homes over two storeys high require a fire door at every room leading to a stairwell. If you have an internal garage, you also need a fire door between that and the rest of the house.

For rented accommodation with multiple occupiers (HMO), as well as blocks of flats, fire doors are a legal requirement. In such buildings, all doors leading to a fire escape route must be fire-rated and close automatically. Fire doors should also be fitted in high-risk rooms such as the kitchen.

If your house is a new build—or you are renovating—and it’s over three stories, you will need fire doors fitted to every habitable room that leads off the stairwell. This includes loft conversions.
