Fire Rated Door Finishes
It is possible for fire rated doors and fire exits to match the existing decor of the property, with a range of finishes available that don’t compromise on safety.
Elite Fire are on hand throughout London and the UK to provide, install and maintain all fire doors, regardless of finish, and can upgrade existing fire doors to alter appearance and operation as desired.
One of the more common fire door finishes, heavy wood/oak units complement most premises with a natural look. Wooden doors must be suitably framed and have a solid core to be fire resistant.
Durable and low maintenance, steel doors are also available in wood finishes and can often be more cost-effective than other styles. Steel doors are ideally suited to warehouse and factory environments, but can be utilised in most commercial settings.
Sufficient fire rated glass can be used for glazed fire doors, allowing light to pass through without reducing fire resistance levels. Wire mesh glass or a specialised surface coating helps to keep the glazing in place at high temperatures, protecting the intumescent materials surrounding it.
