What do you need to know about fire door installations?
A fire door is an important component of making your property safe and secure. The cost of installing one will vary depending on what is already present in the frame. Will it need to be altered to support the door? Will the tradesman installing your fire door have to add new hinges or a latching lock, or will he need to apply smoke seal or an intumescent strip? You can usually get a free risk assessment done by your local fire service to let you know what kind of door you require and how easily it can be installed. Correct and competent installation is crucial for fire doors - you do not want one to malfunction in an emergency! Typically you should expect to pay around £500 for the installation, but take the time to collect several quotes to compare. It is important to make sure that your choice is adequately qualified and experienced for the job. This may seem unnecessary with door installation, but remember what can happen with a fire door if it is installed poorly. An easy sign to look out for is if your tradesman is a member of a tradesman’s organisation like International Fire Consultants (IFC). You should also check that they are fully covered for accidental damage and liabilities.
