Restraining the spread of fire is what fire doors are designed to succeed at. Their heavier composition than standard doors comprising a combination of constituent materials is installed along with a door closer for automatic shutting. Fire door edges are sealed with intumescent graphite seals which swell and block gaps around the edges of the door to prevent the movement of smoke and hot gases along with the flames. Fire-resistant glazing is applied to windows that are part of fire doors, and the entire door-ironmongery is audited for meeting the fire-resistant benchmark. Essentially required to remain closed at all times— Fire-resistant closures display their sagacious feature of closing automatically, in case they were left open mistakenly, once the fire alarm is triggered. All public and some domestic structures in the U.K. are required to have fire closures.
