    1. The theory of fire doors is that these should remain closed in the event of a fire and give occupants time to exit by other means. Yes fire doors are to have heat resistant handles and locks, these are to allow the doors to be opened by some mechanical means in an emergency, for instance by fire brigade personnel to open when fighting fires. It is unlikely that anyone will open a fire door with their bare hand with a fire raging for any length of time on the other side of the door. In a major fire the advice is never to open a fire door if it is containing a fire and there is no need to do so,
