Leading specialist ironmongery supplier, IronmongeryDirect, has pledged its support to this year’s Fire Door Safety Week. As part of the commitment to ensuring compliance with this life saving legislation, IronmongeryDirect has also released a five-step infographic and fire protection guide to explain the requirements.
The infographic, available on the IronmongeryDirect website, has been designed as a visual reference guide on the five fire door checks regarding certification, seals, hinges, closers and gaps around the door, in order to ensure these lifesaving pieces of equipment function as intended.
Dominick Sandford, Director and Head of Merchandising at IronmongeryDirect says, “Fire door safety is crucial all year round, and we want to ensure our customers, regardless of profession, are aware of the requirements surrounding fire doors – as even the slightest misconception can be a huge risk to human life.
Fire Door Safety Week 2020
“As such, in support of Fire Door Safety Week 2020, we’ve created our infographic and fire protection guide to raise awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in the safety of building occupants and to help ensure these doors are correctly installed and maintained.”
Now in its eighth year, Fire Door Safety Week is an awareness campaign designed to increase public understanding of the role that fire doors play in protecting life and property.
