We’ve often been asked whether or not fire doors are a worthwhile addition to garage areas, and our response to that has always been in the affirmative. The reason for this is that in most homes, garages are one of the prime areas where a sudden fire can spring up, because chemicals like paints, paint thinner, cleaning solutions, and even gasoline are commonly stored in garages, which makes the fuel for a fire readily available.
With just a single spark and a leaky container, a raging inferno could develop inside your garage, and sometimes even concentrated sunshine can trigger an out-of-control fire. Even worse, since many garages have a direct connection to the main living area, any fire could quickly spread to your home, causing severe damage, and can even threaten the lives of occupants.
Fire door ratings are expressed in terms of their ability to resist small flames, and to slow the spread of larger flames. A fireproof door might completely stop a small fire from spreading, and if a larger fire were in progress, it might slow the advance of that fire to provide valuable escape time for occupants of your home.
A great many municipal buildings and other governmental agency buildings have specifically required that fire doors be installed, so that a grace period of reaction time is made available to occupants of either residential or commercial buildings. With that kind of protection available to your family and your place of business, it makes great sense to have a specialty garage door installed for your own peace of mind.
