Since the launch of Dorgard 25 years ago, we have introduced two more versions offering you different levels of fire safety compliance so you can ditch the door wedge!
For those of us that know our RRFSO’s from our BS7273-4’s, there's no question that fire doors save lives and that the weight associated with operating a fire door is a necessary evil, a symptom of those innocuous-looking closers that ensure doors can shut safely. But when we think about who uses those doors on a daily basis, are we expecting too much from industry outsiders?
Older people are often more vulnerable when it comes to accidents and emergencies which places huge importance on fire safety in care homes. Fire doors are essential for fire safety, but in the daily lives of care home residents, they can be problematic.
Fire doors help to prevent the spread of smoke and fire throughout a building, potentially saving lives. So, why do students wedge them open?
Closed fire doors save lives but they can get in the way. What solutions are there to improve access for everyone?
Make no mistake, fire doors save lives and property. Not just a regular door, fire doors are a building’s armour in a fire. They block fire and smoke from rapidly spreading so people can escape. But what about when there is no fire?
