Creation of a fireproof doorway from the garage to the home - Ruskington

Door from house into garage in Ruskington

Well 2018 is here and I am still just chipping into completed project images for the website from the end of 2016.
This project was one we are often asked to carry out and that is the creation of a lockable fire rated fire door from the house to the attached garage for future expansion or easy access.

Now to follow regulation they require the door to be FD30 (Rated for the 30 mins fire protection) I went for an FD60 (Rated for 60 minutes of fire protection) 

The floor in the garage is lower than the floor within the house as per the regs and the door self closes.

Below are a couple of images of the project, the strange Pink foam you see around the door is fire rated expanding foam.
