Fire Doors

Fire doors which look and perform the part.

Oakleigh Contracts’ fire doors are designed to meet your interior standards whilst achieving fire resistance to protect your building against the damaging spread of fire.

Oakleigh Contracts can inspect, supply, install and certify fire doors for your multioccupancy residential or commercial building. Whether you’re upgrading your fire doors or undertaking a full rectification service, we can supply bespoke door sets with the material, panelling, and finish of your choice.

Work with our team to select the design which best complements the look and feel of your interior, with both veneered and paint grade flush door sets available.

Independent fire engineers work alongside our team to determine the fire rating requirements of the door, based on the surrounding environment and project specifications as well as a Fire Risk Assessment. Our flush door sets give 30-, 60-, or 120-minutes’ resistance and bespoke doors 30- and 60-minutes’ resistance, with our fire engineer advising on the resistance required.

Resistance time is futile without the proper installation measures, however, since poor installation could still result in dangerous flames and smoke spreading through your building. This is why our dedicated installation team ensures the correct installation procedures are undertaken every time, complete with certification, to make certain your fire doors perform as necessary.


Fire doors are designed to slow and limit the spread of fire, creating safe passageways for those exiting a building; increasing time for those staying put; and allowing firefighters to move around the building safely. They play an essential role in keeping your building and occupants safe and are mandatory in all non-domestic properties.

Oakleigh Contracts have the expertise and experience to carry out a high quality fire door inspection, supply, and installation service in all multi occupancy building types.

Is it a requirement to have internal fire doors?

Internal fire doors are a requirement in non-domestic buildings, such as commercial properties and public buildings. This is in accordance with:

  • Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
  • Code of Practice for Fire Door Assemblies BS 8214
  • BS 9991 Fire Safety in the Design, Management and Use of Residential Buildings
  • BS 9999 Code of Practice for Fire Safety in the Design, Management and Use of Buildings
  • Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) 2018
  • Approved Document B

What makes an internal door fire rated?

Internal fire doors must be made of a non-combustible, fire rated material in order to limit the spread of fire throughout a building - this includes any vision panels within the door, which should be manufactured from fire-resistant glazing. The doors should further be sealed with an intumescent seal, which will expand when temperatures rise above 200°c.
