Blake Fire and Security Systems

Fire Door Safety Week 2018 - A Powerful Film By BWF

Date: 27 September 2018

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) have commissioned five powerful films to raise awareness during Fire Door Safety Week 2018.

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...

We've been here before - A powerful film for Fire Door Safety Week

There is a striking message in this video. Some of our favourite lines are:

Fire door safety week... isn't some clever PR stunt so we can pat ourselves on the back for doing our best in what was a difficult set of circumstances... for making some things for some people just a little bit safer.

Fire Door Safety Week exists because of a need, because things are not where they should be. They are far from it. Fire Safety is too important to be left to chance. To achieve just close enough is nowhere near good enough!

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's are committed...

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 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.

Is your fire safety up to scratch

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 make sure your fire doors meet legislation and are fit to save lives!

There is currently no legislation in place to ensure your fire doors are checked by a qualified third party. Fortunately, there are laws surrounding your Fire Alarm, Extinguishers, Emergency Lighting and Signage...

Let Blake's help. That's what we're here for, after all!
