Hinges and latches have an important role in ensuring the integrity of the door. The fire door hinges must remain adequately screwed, in spite of the charring of wood in the vicinity. It is common to use three hinges although tests have shown that with some doors two hinges may be adequate for a 30 minute fire door (FD30). However it is it good practice to ask for 3 fire rated hinges to be fitted especially for nominal and FD 60 fire doors.

BS EN 1935: 2002: Building Hardware Single Axis Hinges is the current European standard for single axis hinges and being able to understand the CE markings, provided when purchasing hinges, is of some importance. Guide to Interpreting Markings for Single Axis Hinges.
