    Do you mean add stuff around the edges of the frame i.e. to stop drafts and/or do you mean add stuff to the door surface? Either way, given it's a fire door, you'd need to be cautious you aren't indirectly decreasing its effectiveness as a fire door and/or contravening relevant building regs.

    Upgrade it to 60 minutes do you mean? o_O

    Bonkers idea, if I may be so bold.
