Why OPTIMUM HPL is perfect for Fire Doors

It is not uncommon for apartments and public buildings to have emergency doors for occupants in the case of an emergency. These doors are known as fire doors.

The doors are designed to create a seal that will keep away the fatal flames and smoke from those who are in these structures at that time. Fire doors are meant to keep the flames and smoke away in a separate partition.

When people are in a building with a fire, it is important that people know that the fire doors that they see in the building are designed to keep the flames compartmentalised for at least the time frame of 30 to 120 minutes. One of the main functions of the fire door is to protect people from the fire’s harmful effects. The type of doors used can also make a difference in protection since these doors are not usually automated but are made to remain shut during these times.

Fire safety is of utmost importance for aged care facilities because the patients are so vulnerable and lacking in mobility. Fire Safety for Aged Care Facilities is not only important for the health of the patients but required by Australian regulatory reform laws. Properly operating sprinkler systems, smoke alarms, emergency exit signs, Fire doors and other safety hardware is now mandated. There are other safety measures that must also be addressed such as clean pathways to exits, proper training of staff, and good maintenance and housekeeping.

When you are specifying your next door schedule please consider the new Lamicolor ‘OPTIMUM’ Group 1 Fire rated laminates which are leading the way in high performance and value.
