Join us in supporting Fire Door Safety Week 2021 and let’s make buildings safer, together!
Founded in 2013 by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), FDSW is a week-long social campaign on Twitter, this year running from 21st to 27th of September.
FDSW is 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 the critical role a fire door plays when a fire breaks out.
The campaign emphasises the importance of fire doors and encourages people to stop wedging, carry out regular checks and report any faults. If everyone did this, lives, property and businesses could be saved. For 2021, there’s particular focus on ‘making time to save lives’, as homeowners tend to prioritise issues such as heating systems over fire safety.
This year, Fire Door Safety Week has greater relevance to the Fireco team because we now offer our own fire door services. Previously, after installing our door retainers and closers, we were able to offer advice. Now we can also offer an inspection and installation service, as well as help prevent users from wedging open doors by improving access with our products.
In previous years we’ve done a Twitter takeover, but this year we will be sharing related content across most of our social platforms as we feel it’s essential to spread awareness in as many places as possible!
We will be posting plenty of resources, videos, blogs and even two FDSW webinar specials.
