Fire Door Safety Week: Shutting the Door on Fire and Smoke
This week (24-29 September 2018) is Fire Door Safety Week: Shutting the Door on Fire and Smoke. The aim is to raise awareness of how important both correct installation and correct maintenance are in making sure fire doors will perform effectively in the event of a fire.
It's not just the door itself, but the frame, hardware, intumescent seals, closers and signage all work together to create a formidible barrier to fire and smoke. Get just one thing wrong and it could be disastrous.
Watch this video which gives an insight into what a correctly fitted fire door will look like and also shows a live test of two doors: both fire doors, but one correctly fitted and the other not.
