Fire Stopping: FAQs
It’s Fire Door Safety Week from the 20th-26th September, and as national fire protection specialists, Element PFP wants to reassert our stance of raising awareness of the essential role that fire doors play in saving lives and protecting commercial, public, and residential properties.
Every year, Fire Door Safety Week endeavours to encourage organisations to have fire doors installed. Also, to help root out existing fire doors that are ill-fitted, damaged, or shoddily maintained.
If you haven’t already, learn everything you need about fire doors, including types, fire door installations, installers, and much more.
The Fire Door Safety Toolkit
The Fire Door Safety Toolkit is an invaluable resource, providing tips, news, and guidance around best practices around fire door installations and safety statistics.
The Five Step Fire Door Check
Fire Door Safety Week advises of the following 5 essential checks to be carried out on fire doors.
- Check for official CERTIFICATION.
- Avoid APERTURES on fire doors as they will void your door’s certification.
- GAPS & SEALS should be checked for compliance and maintenance.
- Check that your CLOSERS work properly.
- Regularly check the general OPERATION of your fire door.
