For most of our clients, a fire door is not only a sensible, but also a far more secure and insightful solution for their garages. Often paints, paint thinner, gasoline, cleaning materials and other combustible items are kept in garages, which makes these storage areas subject to fires that can rapidly get out of control. Seemingly insignificant things such as tiny sparks or fuel leaks onto hot surfaces have the ability to ignite and create sudden fires. In long-term direct sunlight, sometimes chemical materials tend to ignite by themselves through a process known as spontaneous combustion. Because many garages are directly linked to residences and office buildings, conflagrations that begin in storage areas can quickly spread to areas where people are living or working.
Fire doors have ratings to resist or stop heat and flames to specified grades of intensity, completely stopping small fires and slowing down the progress of larger ones. Fire doors can provide the critical difference in saving residences and businesses from costly losses due to interior damage caused by fires that break out in garages. They can even save our clients from suffering the inestimable loss of human lives.
Research has proven the efficacy of fire doors to such an extent that in many parts of the country, municipal building codes specify requirements of fire doors with ratings of 20 minutes or more of fire resistance for garages in both homes and commercial establishments. Because fire doors with even higher ratings are available, clients can protect the garages in their homes and businesses with extra levels of safety.
