Internal Fire Doors You Can Count On
At JB Kind we take fire doors very seriously and spend a lot of time and effort to ensure that we supply one of the most comprehensive internal fire door ranges in the UK.
What are fire doors?
Fire doors play an important role in saving lives and building regulations specify where they need to be fitted in residential and commercial settings.
Thankfully fire doors do not have to look functional or boring and the good news is that all of our internal door ranges offer an FD30 (fire door 30 minutes) option. Plus, we have glazed fire doors available from stock and can make bespoke fire doors to our customers’ specifications.
Understanding fire doors can become quite complicated and to help explain the subject further, we've created some easy to digest Key facts about fire doors.
Building Regulations for domestic fire doors
For those undertaking a new build or renovating a property, there is a possibility that you may require some fire doors in the house.
The architect involved with the project will be able to clarify if and where fire doors need to be fitted. Domestic fire doors are required if an internal door leads into an integral garage or if a property has three or more storeys, including loft conversions.
