Most often, a fire door certification is required in apartment buildings that extend in height, in large metropolitan cities or, a more frequent situation that needs to be protected, when a fire door must secure the entrance from the garage and separates the latter from the dwelling. What does a fire door guarantee? It is made of special materials that can withstand the high temperatures that can be reached during a fire, specifically to prevent flames and smoke from spreading to other oxygen-rich environments.
The difference in a few letters
EI2 certification 30, 60, 90, 120. The abbreviation “EI” represents the ability of a product to retain, in the event of a fire, certain characteristics for a set amount of time: 30, 60, or 90 minutes. If the door is fireproof, the fire resistance can last up to 90 minutes, while when we refer to a fire-only steel door, the time can even reach 120 minutes.
Each letter refers to a different characteristic:
“E” refers to the effectiveness of the door’s sealing, thus the ability to neither produce nor allow flames to pass through.
“I” refers to thermal insulation, thus the ability to reduce heat transmission.
Accordingly, “E” is defined as a door that retains its stability and is able to block hot fumes and flames, and “EI” as a product that, in addition to the previous qualities, limits heat transmission to a maximum of 180°C on the side that is not in direct contact with fire (i.e., the cooler side). The maximum permissible cold side temperature within the certified time for EI2 doors is 180°C on the sash and 360°C on the frame.
