Ensuring Continuous Protection

Millwood provide a range of fire doors and undertake fire door inspections throughout London and the South-East. Fire doors play a critical role in fire safety by compartmentalising a building and delaying the spread of fire and smoke. They are specially designed and constructed with fire-resistant materials to withstand high temperatures and maintain their integrity during a fire. Fire door inspections are essential to ensure these doors remain in optimal working condition and comply with safety standards.

Fire Door Inspections

Fire doors are subject to wear and tear, damage, and potential malfunctions, which can compromise their effectiveness in a fire emergency. Therefore, regular fire door inspections are essential to ensure they remain fully functional and compliant with safety standards. The frequency of inspections depends on factors like building usage and risk level, but typically, fire doors should be inspected at least every six months. During inspections, any identified issues, such as damaged seals, gaps, or malfunctioning hardware, must be repaired or replaced promptly to maintain the door's fire-resistant integrity.

Creating a more resilient environment

It's important to remember that regardless of the chosen fire rating, proper installation and regular maintenance by a qualified professional are crucial to ensure the door functions effectively in a fire emergency. Factors such as building type, occupancy, and potential fire risk should be considered when selecting the appropriate fire door rating for your premises.

What we offer

Fire doors are available in various fire ratings, each offering different levels of protection within your fire strategy.


FD30 Fire Doors
30 Minutes of Vital Protection

FD30 fire doors are the most common type found in residential and commercial buildings. They offer 30 minutes of resistance against fire, providing valuable time for occupants to evacuate safely. These doors are typically used in areas with lower fire risks, such as corridors, offices, and smaller compartments within a building.


FD60 Fire Doors
Enhanced Protection for High-Risk Areas

FD60 fire doors offer a higher level of protection, withstanding fire for 60 minutes. They are often used in areas with increased fire hazards or where a longer evacuation time is required, such as stairwells, escape routes, and areas containing flammable materials.


FD90 Fire Doors
Critical for High-Hazard Environments

FD90 fire doors provide an even greater level of protection, resisting fire for 90 minutes. They are commonly used in high-risk areas like industrial buildings, warehouses, and areas with hazardous materials storage. These doors help contain fires for longer durations, allowing for safer evacuations and minimising potential damage.


FD120 Fire Doors
Maximum Protection for Critical Areas

FD120 fire doors offer the highest level of fire resistance, withstanding flames for 120 minutes. They are typically installed in critical areas like server rooms, plant rooms, and other locations where protecting valuable assets and ensuring continuous operations are paramount.
