Door edges can quickly become damaged in busy areas. Continuous opening and closing causes general wear and tear to the door’s edge. Both the meeting edge and hinge edge of a door can become damaged simply through everyday use.
On top of that, the pushing open of doors with trolleys, equipment and even feet can cause severe damage to the existing door edges. Door edges an easily splinter, posing a health and safety hazard, as well as looking shabby and unclean.
The structural integrity of fire doors is especially important, for the safety of the building and the people inside it. Door edge damage can result in a widening gap to that of between 2-4 mm (as is the industry recommended standard), between the meeting edges or the edges and frame, leading to non-compliance of the fire door.
Why use door edge protection?
Yeoman Shield’s door edge protection has a toughened 9mm PVCu inner core for durable and reliable door edge protection. Keep door edges both smart and safe, for both aesthetic and protective purposes.

Essentially though, they also include corresponding intumescent seals in accordance to the fire door’s specification to ensure correct performance in the event of a fire.
(N.B. Yeoman Shield door edge protectors can be provided without seals for use on non-fire rated doors.)
