Fire Doors Save Lives
Fire doors are a crucial part of any public, commercial or multiple-occupancy buildings protection strategy. They resist fire and smoke, protect escape routes and essentially save lives.
Each Fire Door comprises of a number of elements including the door leaf, frame, seals and essential hardware such as hinges, latches and door closers. The way the door is installed and maintained are equally important and all of these elements need to work together to ensure that the Fire Door will work as required if or when the time comes.
Any part of the assembly which has been incorrectly specified, installed or has become damaged in some way can compromise the whole door, with catastrophic consequences.
What do you need to know?
Fire Doors save lives, as long as they are working properly. So what regulations do you need to be aware of and who will be held responsible if things go wrong?
Regular Fire Door Inspections and maintenance of Fire Doors is essential to comply with Building Regulations and British Standards BS8214 and BS9999.
If you have been designated the ‘responsible person’, i.e. the person with ‘day-to-day’ control of the building itself, for fire safety in a building, then it is your duty to take steps to protect occupants in your premises from the risk of smoke and fire.
