External Fire Doors

Unlike internal doors, external fire doors aren’t about containment, they’re all about assisting a fast and safe exit for a building’s occupants trying to escape a fire. That means they need to be well illuminated, well signed and easy to open in an emergency.

We can make a free visit to your premises to assess your existing fire doors and provide a free, cost-effective quotation for any installations, upgrades or maintenance required.

External Fire Doors FAQs

What are external fire doors?

External fire doors are doors fitted at exit points on commercial premises. Their main purpose is to protect essential escape routes so that occupants can safely evacuate in an emergency. For this reason, they should be fitted with internal opening devices and be clearly signed as external fire doors.

Where can Scutum North supply external fire doors?

We supply and fit external fire doors across the north of England, from Birmingham right up to the Scottish borders. View our Areas Covered page for more information or get in touch if you need further advice.

Does Scutum North supply free quotes for fire doors?

Yes – we are pleased to provide free, cost-effective quotes for all our work. And don’t forget that you’ll know you’re getting great value, because we always aim to beat any other similar quote that you get.

Do all exterior fire doors need to be fire rated?

No. Because external fire doors are not there to prevent the spread of fire or to enable compartmentalisation within the premises, they do not need to be fire rated. However, they do need to meet certain legal requirements, such as how they open and how they are signposted.
