External Fire Doors FAQs

How do I know what external fire doors I need?

External fire doors don’t play the same role as internal fire doors, as they don’t stop a fire from spreading through a building. However, as the doors that people will be using to exit a building in the event of a fire, they still need to meet certain requirements, such as illuminated exit signs and ease of use. The team at Scutum South East has many years of experience providing external fire doors for all kinds of commercial premises and buildings and can provide expert advice as to the sort of external fire doors that would be suitable in your situation.

Is Scutum South East able to supply different designs of external fire doors?

Yes – there are a number of reasons that you might want a particular look or finish for your external fire doors. You might want them to provide enough strength to meet other security needs, in which case steel doors might be appropriate; alternatively, wooden doors might fit in better with the general aesthetic of the building, or you might want a glazed door to let in extra daylight. We can provide a range of options for you to choose from.

Why are external fire doors important?

In an emergency, any delays can represent a further risk to serious injury or death for those attempting to get out of a building on fire. External fire doors are there to make sure that escaping a building on fire can be achieved as quickly and easily as possible and therefore should form an essential part of your overall fire safety strategy.

Are fire doors a legal requirement?

The legislation and guidance surrounding external fire doors covers only how they should be opened (they should never be locked, as that would slow down escape, but need to be opened from the inside with the use of push bars or similar devices), how they are signposted and that they should never be blocked. Scutum South East can help you make sure that any external fire doors at your premises meet all the necessary requirements.
