Fire-resistant wooden doors are types of doors that are produced using special materials and made fire-resistant. These types of doors are generally produced for special and essential needs. Also, fire-resistant doors have their certificates.
Fire-resistant doors are generally used in buildings where large and many people are together. The reason why this type of door is preferred especially for large buildings is that people can escape without fussing easily in case of fire.
In case of any natural disaster, people are frightened and may hurt each other. For example, fire is a dangerous and natural disaster that can result in death. Fire-resistant doors, on the other hand, are an element that prevents the spread of fire during this natural disaster.

The temperature that may occur in case of any fire is 900 degrees and this degree is more than enough for the wooden door to disappear. That’s why making fire doors an important part of our lives is one of our responsibilities.
