The door is old – How can a fire door pass?

A good fire door surveyor will make a professional judgement on whether the door will hold back a fire. If a door is very old, it will probably have no certification or paperwork to prove it is a fire door. However, the surveyor will measure the door and look for features that will determine how it will perform in a fire. If this type of door passes, the assessor will call if a “nominal fire door”. For example it maybe called an “nominal FD30 door”. This means it should hold back a fire for at least 30 minutes.
