Premises required a safety upgrade

“The issue we were facing was that our building needed a significant upgrade because our fire doors were substandard,” explains Sandra Davies, Registered Manager of the home. “The Risk Assessors and the local Fire Department agreed that we needed to install new doors.”

After looking for a reputable supplier of fire doors, Sandra and her team decided to approach Fireco.

Accredited installers provide safe fire doors

“We needed to find a good company who had exactly the type of product and service we wanted, as it was an enormous and daunting job for such a small establishment,” says Sandra.

“The doors have improved the environment by providing greater protection in the event of a fire.”
