We are proud to be supporting Fire Door Safety Week, a national campaign designed to raise awareness around the vital role that fire doors play in protecting lives and property.

5 things to check for fire door safety

1. CERTIFICATION

Look for a label, a plug or similar to show it's certificated & follow the instruction. Important: All ironmongery such as locks, latches, closers & hinges, MUST be CE marked and compatible with the door leaf's certification.

2. APERTURES

Altering the door for glazing apertures and air transfer frilles will make certification VOID.

3. GAPS & SEALS

Check the gap around the door frame is constant and around 3 to 4mm & CE marked hinges are firmly fixed with no missing screws. Ensure seals are fitted at the top and sides of the door.

4. Closers

Check that the closer shuts the door onto the latch from any position - check from 75mm from the closed position.

5. OPERATION

Ensure the door closes correctly around all parts of the frame.
