Fire Door Safety Week 15-21 September

By September 15, 2014News

fire door safety week logoHow often do you hear the words “Who was responsible? Someone must have been to blame.” when you learn of a serious fire reported in the papers or on TV?

One of the most important ways to prevent the spread of fire and stop the blame game is to correctly specify, install, maintain and inspect fire doors.

This week is Fire Door Safety week, a national event to raise awareness of the crucial role of fire doors in fire safety.

About three million fire doors are bought and installed in the UK every year – that’s almost one fire door for every business in the UK – and they are fundamental to most fire strategies for buildings.

To get involved in the event, download your free checklist by clicking the image below and take a look at your fire doors today:

The secret killer:

Have you ever propped open a fire door while you unload the car, or because it’s a hot day, or just to make it easier to talk to colleagues in the next office?  You know it’s wrong, but it’s convenient, and what’s the worst that can happen?

Fire doors must work correctly to save lives and to work correctly they need to close when there is a fire.  Door guards offer the ideal solution – they block a fire door open, but once the alarm is triggered they simply release the door so it closes tight shut, protecting the premises and the people in it.

As part of National Fire Safety week, we are offering a 20% discount on doorguards you purchase for your business during September. 

To qualify for your discount, contact the Fire Crest Fire Protection office now on 01209 831 417 and quote FDSW2014 – door guards are just £99 as part of this special offer.

Fire safety doors aren’t just about staying legal – they also play a key role in saving lives. Just watch what happens if you get it wrong:

So don’t delay – get the fire doors in your premises protected with a door guard today and make sure you stay on the right side of the law and keep your staff and customers safe.
