About Hörmann UL Label and British Standard Doors
Hörmann UL Label and British Standard Doors
Fire doors are designed to protect property and life in the event of a fire
For this, the door must serve as a fire and smoke barrier. Studies have shown that more people have lost lives due to smoke asphyxiation than fire.
Fire Doors must serve four main functions
• serve as a regular door at all times and provide ready egress from a fire area during a fire
• inhibit spreading of fire
• protect life and property by reducing smoke hazards.
When an opening requires strength, durability, or maximum fire resistance, steel doors and frames provide the qualities to meet these needs. Due to growing access control needs, fire doors have today evolved to accommodate the growing electrified functions a door must support.
Designed to meet the life-safety requirements in various types of buildings and structures, Hörmann fire doors
help compartmentalise and contain the spread of fire. These doors complement existing passive fire-fighting systems.
