Fire Door Safety for Landlords and HMOs throughout Essex
Fire doors are legally required in HMO’s and the purpose of this regulation is to protect the people in your property in the case of a fire. This includes the doors in the living room, one for each bedroom, and one for each entry point of the kitchen.
HMOs are a part of the Housing Act of 2004 and are controlled by Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO). You can find more information about the order here.
We specialise in these sizes:

Essex Fire Doors for Commercial Applications
Many commercial buildings will require fire doors to ensure the safety of occupants, block the spread of flames and smoke which in-turn will minimise the overall damage to a building.
Fire doors in commercial buildings will automatically close once a fire has been detected in the building, making them a vital aspect of a building’s fire resistance and protection system.
Specialised agencies will carry out a series of fire-resistance tests on fire doors for commercial buildings which they will need to pass. They will then be classified according to their fire protection rating. This rating is measured in hours; .5, .75, 1, 1.5 and 3 hours are all common examples of classifications.
The measurement found illustrates the amount of time the barrier can stand up to exposure from heat and flames. The time a door can resist fire can vary depending on local building codes and location within the building, such as vicinity to an exit or the fire rating of nearby walls.
