When you start your own business, you have to face many difficulties, one of which is ensuring the security of the premises. To protect the office from burglary, first of all, you should take care of a high-quality door that will effectively protect it from intrusion attempts or external influences (such as scratches, moisture, etc.).
According to the basic provisions of fire safety, if the office is located in a residential area and the door opens onto a common staircase, it must be fireproof. In other cases, for example, if the office is located in a business center, the installation of a fire-rated door is not required, you can choose absolutely any, depending on the goals pursued (safety, attractiveness or ease of use).
Metal structures are very popular, the decoration of which can be made of various materials:
• vinyl leather;
• powder spraying;
• solid oak.
Do not forget about such special doors, because they provide maximum protection for the room and in some cases are simply necessary.
How is such a high level of protection provided?
The fittings are made of heat-resistant material, and the gypsum inserts near the locks protect against overheating. The door leaf is filled with balsa fiber board. Seals protect from both cold and hot smoke, fire. Both the box and the door leaf are coated with a powder-polymer coating.
What is the fire resistance limit at the front door to the office?
The best option is fireproof doors marked IE30 or IE60, which will protect against fire penetration for 30 and 60 minutes, respectively.
Should the exterior of the door be sacrificed for security?
Fireproof doors can be decorated with decorative elements, panels. Flammable items (leather upholstery, etc.) must not be used.
Which is more profitable to buy, an ordinary metal door or a fireproof door?
Metal doors with vinyl leatherette or laminate finishes, for example, are cheaper than fire doors, but structures with a more robust finish (MDF, powder coated) cost about the same as fire doors.
Where is the best place to buy an entrance door
It is definitely better to work with companies that have showrooms in which you can visually evaluate products. It is always easier to make a choice when you are looking not at a picture on the Internet, but at a real structure. There you can also talk to a manager who will be able to answer most of your questions.
Some companies act as intermediaries, that is, they do not have their own production, they buy doors from manufacturers and resell them. Naturally, they raise the price of the product a little.
It is more profitable to cooperate with companies that are engaged in independent production, since they do not make mark-ups on products and give a longer warranty on it.
How to find a worthy manufacturer
Among the many companies, it is not so easy to find the only one with which you can cooperate on mutually beneficial terms. Everyone is looking for her in their own way and I want to talk exclusively about personal experience.
The task was to find a good fireproof door to the office as soon as possible. The search for manufacturing companies was carried out in Moscow and the region, and since time was limited, we went straight to the exhibition halls and examined the product options.
Now about each company in order
Max-doors is the first company to be contacted. A rich assortment at quite affordable prices, pleasant managers. The only problem is that there were no fire doors in the exhibition hall at all, and only three models were offered to make, which did not quite fit in terms of cost and appearance.
Moscow doors - the company has been on the metal door production market for 20 years already, there is plenty to choose from, but prices “bite” and delivery / installation is also at an additional cost.
SK-Titan are pleasant managers who gladly told about their products, the prices are low, but the range of fire-resistant doors is also not very large and there is a possibility that they are not certified, since the employees could not submit the relevant documents.
Estet - the company has been manufacturing fire doors for every taste at reasonable prices for over 10 years, and installation is absolutely free. There was an opportunity to see the products live, but most of all I was glad that the door warranty is given for 10 years.
Estet was the favorite
The choice of the manufacturer and the door itself is only yours, you should not skimp on the safety of your own and your employees - choose only certified products from a company that can give a long-term guarantee.
