Fire doors play a key role in the fulfilment of the requirement for ensuring efficient and safe evacuation in case of fire. In fire conditions, they are to form a barrier to fire, smoke and heat. Therefore, this type of items should be appropriately fire-rated with respect to fire integrity, fire insulation and smoke control. This article discusses the main aspects of heat flow stopping, i.e. fire insulation of hinged aluminum, profiled fire doors depending on the fire exposure side. The results were compared of temperature increase on aluminum profiles in the case of several types of fire doors with symmetrical cross- -sections of the profiles (two possible cases of fire exposure) and fire doors with asymmetrical cross-sections of the profiles (four fire cases possible). The items selected for each comparison were made in the same way in all respects, with the fire direction being the only difference.
