Buildings are compartmentalised to prevent fires from spreading from one area to another. These compartments are typically linked by fire doors and fire-rated screens to provide access to safe escape routes such as corridors, lobbies, stairways, and shafts.
In a fire, fire doors serve two functions: when closed, they form a barrier to prevent the spread of fire, and when opened, they provide a means of escape. Cavities between the door frame and the supporting structure that are not adequately sealed or protected can be easily exploited by fire and can undermine the fire performance of the fire door assembly.
Fire Door Foam™ is a proprietary fire sealing product designed to restore the fire resistance of cavities and gaps between pedestrian fire door assemblies and supporting constructions for use in flexible partitions and masonry walls.
The product has been extensively tested for fire resistance from 30 to 120 minutes in accordance with BS 476:Part 22:1987 and BS EN 1634-1.
