FDIS

Not only must a fire door be manufactured in a particular way, but it also needs to be installed correctly in order to function as intended and provide that crucial level of protection. The purpose of a fire door job is to prevent smoke and flames from escaping through any gaps or cracks in the door, frame, seal, or glass.
Fire door installation in homes, businesses, and public spaces should only be performed by skilled installers.
Anyone can install fire doors, but that doesn’t mean they have to. Installers of fire doors do not have to have any formal qualifications or accreditations.
