Fire doors need to withstand worse conditions than standard doors and require equally strong fire door hinges.
A 30-minute fire door, for example, weighs an average of 40kg, which would quickly wear out a regular hinge (made to hold around 15kg), with 60- to 120-minute fire doors weighing significantly more. Fire rated hinges are designed to deal with this excess weight while coping with higher temperatures, making them an essential piece of fire door hardware.
