We are pleased to announce our participation in the Fire Door Safety Week 2019 campaign.
Fire Door Safety Week has been running since 2013 with the aim of raising awareness on the important role of fire doors. The main message includes how fire doors will only be effective if installed correctly and maintained properly.
FDSW is a campaign aimed at everyone, from the people who make the doors to the people who use them. Pretty much everyone in the UK will use a fire door at some point during their day, whether it’s at work, school or where they live. However, most people don’t realise that fire doors play a critical role in protecting people and property when a fire breaks out.
Every year there is an FDSW theme and this year the focus will be on sleeping accommodation. We are the most vulnerable when we are asleep and closed fire doors can be the difference between life and death. They can keep a fire in one area for up to 60 minutes, allowing the fire service to tackle the flames and evacuate the building.
Follow us on Twitter @Fireco to keep up to date with the FDSW 2019 campaign. We will be sharing resources full of useful information that will help you to understand more about fire doors and general fire safety.
