Fire doors: Why you must never wedge them open

Never wedge a fire door open. They must be kept closed at all times to do the job they’re designed for. Your fire door will provide a minimum of 30 minutes’ protection from smoke and flames in a fire, but only if it’s closed.

When it’s installed, cared for, and used properly, a fire door will save your life. The installation and care is our job, but we need your help to make sure doors are used properly.
