Did you know that your garage could be a dangerous place located right in your house? There was a total of 89 fire related injuries in New Hampshire alone in the year of 2013. The car batteries in your garage can spark easily while cars can drip gasoline or oil onto the floor. Other common items placed in the garage like paint, motor oil, and anti freeze can easily be ignited. One small ignition can turn the small space into a large fire in seconds.
A high rating fire door can protect an area that is on fire. It prevents the fire from reach to other areas because heat, smoke, and fire can’t spread as long as the door is still there. The feature is called compartmentalization and it has proved to be successful to contain a fire from spreading. It is also important to do regular inspections and they make the door more reliable and safe for your family.
By installing a fire door, it can keep the fire from spreading to other parts of the house in seconds and allow people to escape the house.
