We’re often asked if a fire door is practical to add to a garage space, and our answer is normally always “yes.” The garage is most susceptible to fires due to various chemicals such as paint and paint thinners, gasoline, cleaning products and other inflammable products usually stored in the garage.
A small fuel leak or spark of other materials on to heated surfaces could create a spontaneous combustion. Since most garages are connected to the home or the main building in commercial settings, a small garage fire could easily spread to other parts of the home or facility in no time.
Fire doors are so beneficial that a variety of municipalities rely on them to the point that they've made their usage a part of their standard procedures, primarily for their building codes that require a fire door to be rated at least 20 minutes of resistance for commercial and residential garage fires. So since they're also fire doors containing an even higher resistance rating, one of our garage fire doors can offer an even larger layer of protection and security for your home or business.
