What are they and what are the fire doors for?
Fire doors are used for separating fire zones between each other. They are used mainly in public facilities: restaurants, hotels, hospitals, offices, offices, as well as in selected fire zones of halls, warehouses and industrial facilities.
Due to the growing awareness of fire protection and ensuring adequate security in the building, single-wing fire doors more and more often they are also assembled in private homes and apartments. They provide an elegant design combined with effective fire protection.
Types of fire doors
Fire doors they are available in many fire resistance classes, which determines their tightness and fire insulation. On the market you can meet mainly:
- EI 30 fire door,
- EI 60 fire door,
- EI 120 fire door.
The letter "E" defines the fire integrity, which depends on the materials used to make the door and the time in which the door will withstand high temperatures and exposure to open fire. The letter "I" represents fire insulation, ie the resistance of door materials to heating up. The numbers "30", "60" and "120" determine the number of minutes for how many doors will be able to create an effective firewall.
Parameters of fire doors they vary depending on the materials used for their production. In Bydgoszcz, Toruń, Poznań, Gdańsk and Gdynia, we usually assemble:
- fire doors with a ventilation cage,
- aluminum fire doors,
- smoke-proof fire doors.
Each fire door should be equipped with a metal frame, swelling gasket and industrial gasket, which are responsible for ensuring proper smoke-tightness of the door and shutting off the air supply to the protected zone.
What are fire gates and how do they work?
Fire gates are also used for fencing passageways between fire zones, with the difference that they are mainly used in industrial facilities, warehouses and production halls. That is why they are also called industrial gates. In addition, fire gates are used on technical floors of various facilities, in storage rooms, hospitals and other facilities with large spaces that require fire protection.
Fire gates they can be opened using an electric drive or manually. Among the most popular solutions, we can distinguish sliding fire gates and rolling fire gates.
Industrial doors are also available in EI 30, EI 60 and EI 120 fire resistance classes. All gate elements are made of steel. The exception are curtain gates, in which the gate's jacket is made using glass fabric.
Benefits of using industrial doors and doors
Gates and fireproof doors are an effective physical barrier against the spread of fire between fire zones. Using them in the facility, it is possible to:
- significant reduction of losses by tightly separating fire zones,
- cutting off air access to the zone, and thus choking the fire in the fire zone,
- efficient evacuation of people from the building by means of escape routes
- efficient notification of fire risk.

The maximum dimensions of double-leaf swing gates are 450 x 500 cm, sectional doors 1500 x 800 cm, curtain gates 3500 x 800 cm, and roll-up 500 x 500 cm. Single and multi-leaf sliding and sliding gates are not limited in size.
The letter of the law and gates and fire doors
The specificity of fire protection and the technical conditions that must be met by elements of this protection are regulated by three legal documents. The first of them is the Construction Law Act, which specifies that construction works must be designed and built in accordance with current knowledge and maintaining fire safety.
The second document that specifies these conditions is the Regulation of the Minister of Infrastructure of April 12, 2002, as amended, which regulates the technical conditions of buildings and their location. This document precisely defines the fire safety of building structures, the specificity of fire zones and escape routes.
The last key legal provision is the Regulation of the Minister of the Interior of June 7, 2010, as amended, which determines the fire protection of buildings in accordance with EU standards and regulations.
