  • Fire Doors Chester

    Fire doors are the very important and here at kaybee doors we have a wide selection of safe and secure Fire Doors Chester.

    Fire doors have two important functions in a fire; when closed they delay/stop the spread of fire and when open they provide a safer means of escape. To delay the spread of smoke and fire, fire doors close automatically and are used to compartmentalise buildings. As these ‘compartments’ are linked by fire doors they also create a safer flow of traffic to the emergency exits.

    What is a fire door?

    According to the Architectural and Specialist Door Manufacturers Association (ASDMA) a fire door is:

    "A complete installed door assembly comprising doorframe, door leaves, other panels, hardware, seals and any glazing that when closed is intended to resist the passage of fire and smoke in accordance with specified performance criteria. A fire door = a complete installed assembly."

    Internal doors may be required to be fire rated if they are on an escape route or form part of the compartmentation of the building. The fire rating will be achieved by an appropriate assembly of the door leaf, frame and associated hardware.

    Building owners, installers, inspectors and maintainers must ensure that a fire door can function correctly in the event of a fire. For this to happen it should be certificated to demonstrate that it can do so. Fire door task relies on the correct operation of other components such as the door frame, hinges, closers, seals and glazing systems.

    How fire doors work?

    Buildings are compartmentalised to delay the spread of fire from one area to another. These areas of the building are usually linked by fire doors allowing flow around the building.

    Fire doors have two important functions in a fire, when closed they create a barrier and when opened they provide an escape.

    A well designed timber fire door will delay the spread of fire and smoke without causing too much hindrance to the movement of people.

    Required to provide resistance to the passage of a well-developed fire must be fitted with intumescent seals. These seals remain dormant under normal conditions but expand greatly in the heat of a fire to close the gap between the door and its frame.
    As smoke spread is an even greater threat to life and property than flames, particularly in the early stages of a fire, fire doors should also be fitted with a ‘cold smoke’ seal to prevent the ingress of smoke around the door edges. Combined smoke and intumescent seals protect from all aspects of fire in a single unit

  • Oak Internal Doors Liverpool

    We have probably sold more oak internal doors in Liverpool that any other privately owned door company. Over the years we have sold tens of thousands of them in Liverpool. The name Kaybee is trusted not just in Liverpool for doors, but thanks to the introduction of the internet and the launch of our internet site, around the country as well. We have also sold oak doors to countries as far away as Australia and the Falkland Islands. When we first received enquirers from these countries for doors we did think someone was playing a joke on us. This was not the case. We found that the enquirers were from people who had purchased doors from Kaybee doors in the U.K and were now living in Australia and the Falklands etc. We have also received orders for doors from people who have moved from Liverpool to other parts of the country, such is the trust that people have in doors from Kaybee Doors. Of course they do not have to worry about the quality of their oak doors as all the doors are now engineered. That is to say the doors have a thick veneer over a solid internal core. One of the advantages of this is that oak internal doors are far less likely to twist or warp. Also manufacturing doors this way is much better for the environment as all the timber is used in the production of internal doors as all the timber is used in the door. Mismatching timber is used on the inside of the door. This means that all the oak tree can be utilised with little or no wastage. Using this method of manufacturing also keeps the costs down meaning oak internal doors are cost you less.

  • Oak Internal Doors

    So you have decided you want to purchase oak internal doors and solid oak internal doors.

    There are a huge range of oak doors to choose from. Until approximately ten years ago there was only a choice of a handful of oak internal doors. These days you have hundreds of designs to choose from. We are asked if our oak doors are solid oak. The answer to this is that all internal oak doors are engineered these days. This means they have a genuine oak veneer over the top of a solid mixed core. If you ask other doors companies if there doors are solid they will tell you they are. The question to ask is if they sell solid oak internal doors. As I have already stated one piece oak doors no longer exist or at least they are as rare as hens teeth, as the saying goes. The reason for the change over the years to engineered doors is due to cost and environmental concerns. By utilising the mismatching timber on the inside of the door you can use all the tree. Years ago the mismatching timber may have been destroyed. Using oak veneer means that all of the panels and styles will match. Another advantage of engineering is that they are very unlikely to warp or twist, like one piece solid oak doors. In fact in many years and tens of thousands of doors sold by ourselves we cannot recall ever receiving a complaint regarding twisting and warping. There is a misconception that internal doors cannot be trimmed anymore. This is not true. For many years you have always been able to trim oak doors, up to six millimetres from each edge. Things have moved on again and now many of our doors can be trimmed by up to eighteen millimetres from each side.
