Fire-rated doors are types of doors that are constructed from materials that help in slowing down or completely stopping the spread of flames, smoke, and in certain cases, transfer of heat. Common materials used in making fire-rated doors include wood, steel, fibreglass, or a combination of these materials. Here at Cease Fire Solutions, we have been supplying and installing top-of-the-line fire-rated doors for clients all over the Doha region.

Components of fire-rated doors
Fire-rated doors are often referred to as assemblies that include the frame, door, glazing, hardware, and other components. The individual components are usually not required to be supplied by the same manufacturer, but they must be classified, labelled, and approved by an authorized third party approved by Qatar civil defense to use in a fire door assembly. To ensure the doors perform as intended, manufacturers have extensively tested all the components to make sure they work as a cohesive unit. Upon utilization, fire-rated doors work in concurrence with surrounding fire protection systems to provide round-the-clock defence against any fire breakout, and ensure a safe and unobstructed passage out of the premises. If they are installed properly, they will not combust or fail as per the average fire rating. The standard fire rating ranges from 30 to 180 minutes. In the event of a fire, the doors are required to be self-closed, making sure the fire does not spread elsewhere and is contained.
Where are fire-rated doors commonly used?
Fire-rated doors are commonly used in commercial buildings rather than residential buildings. They are installed in areas where there is a lot of movement around, such as lobbies, stairwells, storefronts, exits, etc., to meet the necessary fire and safety code requirements. Additionally, fire-rated doors can also protect individuals against accidental impact and safeguard them against ballistics, a blast, or even forced entry. To make sure these doors achieve the standardized fire ratings and supplemental safety and security ratings, these doors undergo rigorous testing.
An integral component of fire protection equipment
Fire-rated doors are an important component of any fire protection system. These doors act as a barrier against heat, smoke, fire, and provide the people present in the building with enough time to plan their escape safely out of the building. These doors are designed keeping in mind safety codes and regulations. At Cease Fire Solutions, with years of experience in this line of business, we understand the importance of ensuring a safe working environment for our clients, and supplying and installing fire-rated doors that are only approved by the Qatar Civil Defence (QCD).
