If you are living in an HDB in Singapore, there are requirements for fire-rated doors in Singapore. There are 2 situations for this requirement:
For the replacement of the main entrance door and/or frame along the fire escape route (i.e. for door opening into passageways such as staircases, lift lobbies), a permit is required, and the replacement door and/or frame must be half-hour fire-rated and the frame must have a door closer.
In this case, you will require an HDB licence contractor with a permit to install it. The company has to apply for an HDB permit on your behalf before we can change your fire door.
It is important to note that for the replacement of the main entrance non-fire rated door or frame, there are no guidelines or permit required.
Again, you need to engage an HDB licensed fire-rated door like those provided by us to install your fire door as we will need to apply for an HDB permit on your behalf before we can change your fire-rated door. Remember that only those certified can remove and reinstall a fire-rated door!

As a flat owner, upon conviction, you will be fined up to $5,000 and other penalties.
It is important for homeowners to only engage HDB registered renovation contractors to carry out renovation works in your flat. HDB requires certification so that your home and the well-being of your neighbours is sufficiently protected.
Changing out fire-rated doors is an area of inspection by HDB officials, and requires an HDB registered contractor like us to replace your fire-rated door. Hence, it is important to find out the best fireproof protection option for you.
My door has to be fire-rated. Does that mean my door will be ugly?
Definitely not! Safety does not have to compromise on beauty and aesthetics. The manufacturing process for a fire-rated door involves making it more resistant to building or HDB requirements. Our expert door design team with over 20 years in the industry is more than capable of producing a safe door while meeting your beauty expectations.
How do I tell if a door is fire-rated?
Look for markings near the hinges or around the corners of the door. If your door is older or bought over from a previous resident, this marking might have been painted over. Try to find any raised surfaces or edges that stand out.
Visit our enquiries page and contact us if you’re still confused about what a fire-rated door is, whether a door is fire-rated or if your home requires a fire-rated door. Alternatively for more info, please refer to HDB’s regulation page here.
Fire rated door prices are similar to HDB main door prices, but the fireproof properties will add on to the cost of the door. Higher fire grading will come with a higher price point, due to the materials needed to fulfil its requirements.
