Fire Door Safety Week

Fire door facts, figures and regulatory requirements: an infographic

To mark Fire Door Safety Week 2019, Abloy UK has released an infographic comprising UK fire stats, figures on fire prevention efforts and information on how fire spreads, protecting premises and who is responsible for meeting regulatory requirements.

“Fire Door Safety Week is an excellent opportunity to shine a light on the issues around the risks of unregulated fire doors, and educate those responsible for ensuring safety in buildings,” said Pat Jefferies, commercial director of Abloy UK, who has written about how correct fire door specification can be the difference between casualties and averting tragedy.

“Although the initiative gives us a relevant platform to highlight these issues, fire door safety should be front of mind all year round – especially when the ultimate cost from non-compliance can be the loss of life. That’s why Abloy is committed to educating anyone responsible for the specification and installation of fire doors through our Academy – whether that’s an architect, specifier, systems integrator, landlord or facilities manager.

“We’ve been training delegates at the Abloy Academy on the points raised in this infographic and so much more for over a decade, and are proud to help ensure public safety through fire door safety education for many more decades to come.”

Might have been a good feature of the infographic to have the correct date on BS 8214. The most recent edition is 2016 – there was never a 2014 version.
