    As summer moves into full swing and we look forward to the bank holiday it is also one of the hottest times of the year. This means our own home protection against fires is of the utmost importance and fire doors are the most popular protection against them. But what do fire doors do?

    1. They slow down the development/inflammation of a fire.
    2. They are designed to allow an accessible path to exit a property.
    3. By withstanding and holding back a fire and vapour for a limited time.
    4. They assist the emergency services, including the fire brigade – in helping isolate and neutralise a fire.
