What are composite fire doors made of?

Conventional fire doors have cores that are either constructed from timber or metal, whereas composite fire doors have fire-proof cores that are made from tougher yet lighter fire-resistant materials; which makes the door easier to open when a swift escape is necessary. Common composite fire door core materials consist of polyurethane, recycled materials, and PVC plastic.

Composite fire doors are also installed with seals that wrap around the doors’ edges. These seals are commonly made from an intumescent material that swells up when there is excessive heat, making it difficult for any smoke to get through the gaps between the door and the frame – making them a far superior choice to standard fire doors.
