Selecting the proper hardware and accessories for fire doors ensures their effectiveness during a fire.

Locks: Fire door locks must be able to withstand extreme heat and provide a secure barrier to prevent the spread of fire and smoke. High-quality, fire-rated locks are designed to maintain their integrity during a fire, allowing the door to remain closed and perform as intended.

Hinges: Fire-rated hinges are an essential component of fire doors, ensuring that the door remains securely in place during a fire. These hinges are designed to resist warping and distortion under extreme temperatures, maintaining the door’s position and preventing gaps that could allow fire and smoke to spread.

Door closers: Self-closing devices are mandatory for fire doors, as they ensure that the door automatically closes after being opened. This feature is vital for maintaining compartmentation during a fire and preventing the spread of flames and smoke throughout the building. Door closers must be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure proper functioning.
