A fire can happen when you least expect it. This is why installing fire doors in your office is crucial. Doing so not only helps contain fires but can also protect lives and minimize property damage.


Every building has a unique layout, so where fire doors are required varies for each space. Having your building and office professionally assessed can help you determine where fire doors are needed. However, fire doors are typically necessary at entrance and exit points, stairwells, hallways, and where hazardous materials are stored. This is known as ‘compartmentalization’ and provides people with a safe escape route in the event of a fire.

What Is a Fire-Rated Door?

A fire-rated door is designed and tested specifically to reduce the spread of fire and smoke for a specific period of time. According to the International Fire and Safety Journal, this time can range between thirty and ninety minutes. The amount of time it can withstand exposure to flames is known as the ‘fire rating.’


Fire doors are made of materials that can withstand high heat and block flames and smoke from passing through. The goal of any good fire door is to compartmentalize the fire, provide time for people inside to evacuate safely, and allow firefighting efforts to begin.

The Importance of a Professional Assessment

Fire safety professionals understand fire codes and regulations better than anyone else, so it can be incredibly helpful to utilize their experience to evaluate your office space for where fire doors need to be installed. With their help, you can properly identify what areas (in addition to obvious entrances and exits) that should have a fire door. 


These pros can also identify potential fire hazards and customize a fire door layout that works best for your space. Plus, once the doors are installed, they can also double-check that it was done correctly. 


Fire safety professionals will make sure the door securely closes, inspect seals, examine hinges, and look for any potential damage. Through a professional assessment, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your office is equipped with the correct fire doors in the event of an emergency. 

Are Fire Doors Expensive?

There is no one price-fits-all approach to choosing a fire door. Factors like size, material, and fire rating each play a role in how much the door costs.
