Smart Fire Doors

The integration of smart technology into fire doors is a significant development in the industry. Smart fire doors can be connected to a building’s fire alarm and security systems, allowing for real-time monitoring and remote control of the doors. This technology enables automatic closing of fire doors in the event of a fire, ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations and potentially saving lives. Additionally, smart fire doors can be programmed to send alerts to property owners and facility managers in case of any issues or maintenance requirements.

 

Eco-friendly Materials

As sustainability becomes a priority in the construction industry, the development of eco-friendly materials for fire doors is gaining traction. These materials, such as recycled wood and metal, reduce the environmental impact of fire door production while still providing the required level of fire resistance. Furthermore, eco-friendly fire doors can contribute to a building’s overall sustainability rating, making them an attractive choice for architects and property developers.

Improved Fire Resistance

Advancements in fire-resistant materials and technologies are continuously improving the performance of fire doors. Innovations like intumescent seals, which expand when exposed to high temperatures, help to create a better seal around the door, further preventing the spread of fire and smoke. Research into new materials and coatings is also ongoing, with the potential to further enhance the fire resistance of doors in the future.
