If you’re a landlord, commercial or public building manager or owner, you will know the importance of installing fire doors in your properties- and if you don’t you should definitely read on.

But it’s just a door we hear you say? Of course it is, but one that plays a fundamental role in protecting occupants and buildings from the damage fire can cause.

This week is Fire Door Safety week. Created by the BWF-CERTIFIRE Scheme, the campaign was launched to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of fire doors
  • Draw attention to installation and maintenance issues
  • Encourage regular inspections of the operation and condition of fire doors
  • Educate people on the correct requirements and specification

In a world where building regulations and health and safety are a key part of our everyday lives, it might be too easy to forget about your fire door safety. Fire Door Safety Week is trying to change that.

That’s why they’ve put together a range of educational videos highlighting the dangers of faulty fire doors and top tips on how to install them correctly.
