Most people don't give fire doors a second thought, until we need them. We walk past them and through them at work, in pubs and clubs, forgetting that they save lives. That is, if they are properly installed...
There is a striking message in this video. Including:
In 2016 over 60% of fire doors in the UK had problems with their fire and smoke seals. Over 20% had unsuitable hinges and, in Grenfell Tower, only a quarter had the door closer fitted...
Blake Fire & Security Systems are committed to being the change we need to see in the world, to stop further tragedies like Grenfell.
That's why we only supply and install fire doors (and all other fire safety equipment) that meet legislation.
That's why we are BM Trada and NSI Gold Fire certified - meaning all of our fire safety systems meet British standards and legislation.
That's why our processes and management systems are inspected by our accreditation boards regularly - to make sure we are performing to the same exceptional standards.
It's why we created our simple checklist to getting compliant Fire Doors. You can download your copy by clicking the image below.
As Hannah, head of technical research at BWF said in the video, it's up to US.
It's up to the manufacturers, the suppliers, the installers, the clients, the office management and Responsible Persons...to make sure your fire doors meet legislation and are fit to save lives!
