Fire Door Safety week 2019 launches next week.
Running from the 23rd-29th September, the objectives of the week are:
- To raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance;
- To engage and educate people, helping the whole building industry and every property owner to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors;
- To encourage building owners and users to check the operation and condition of their fire doors and to report those that aren’t satisfactory;
- To link together the initiatives of many organisations with common interests in the fire door and passive fire protection industries.
Fire Door Safety Week is the brainchild of the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and the Fire Door Alliance (an evolution of the BWF CERTIFIRE Scheme) and was supported at conception by the Government’s Fire Kills campaign. All stakeholders invest in the campaign to promote and educate on the critical importance of properly specified, installed and maintained fire doors and associated products.
Fire Door Safety Week was launched in 2013 in response to a legacy of fire door neglect. It is a ‘mass market’ awareness campaign to increase public understanding of the role that fire doors play in protecting life and property.
