Video: Watch how these 3 fire doors cope in a fire

Many people outside the fire-safety industry could be forgiven for believing that any sturdy-looking door could do a decent job of preventing the spread of fire and smoke.

Watch the following video, however, and they’d be quickly disabused of this misconception.

Produced by the British Woodworking Federation it shows three doors –  Door A glazed incorrectly, Door B installed and glazed correctly and Door C with an ordinary letter plate and no intumescent seals – being exposed to the intense heat of a real fire.

The consequences of neglecting your responsibilities are potentially unthinkable. Punitive fines and even prison sentences can be handed down for serious breaches of fire-safety laws and, of course, lives can be lost. This selection of guides is your one stop shop to ensure you are on top of your fire safety responsibilities.

I like the video and it would enlighten a lot of business people I have been in contact with, who have not accepted my advice re their doors.
Great Job

I work for a local authority fire service. This is a good video which I would like to be able to use for training purposes. Is this permitted, and is the video available to download, rather than view on-line?
