Safety and security are essential for all building owners, landlords, business owners and managers. However, fire safety is sometimes judged as less of a priority.

People are more likely to report a heating issue than a faulty fire door. We at Fire Doors Complete are in full support of Fire Door Safety Week this October 31st–4th Novemeber, as we aim to raise awareness about fire doors and their vital role in saving lives and protecting property from the tragedy of fire.


The importance of fire doors

Approximately 3 million new fire doors are bought and installed annually in the UK. Still, to save lives, fire doors must be installed and maintained correctly to the correct specifications to protect us from the catastrophe fire can cause.

Fire doors must be fitted with the correct and compatible components suited to the door. Like any other fire safety device, fire doors should be installed and maintained by competent people and should never be propped open.

How to check fire doors?

We have designed and created a number of training packages to meet the needs of contractors, fabric engineers, caretakers, maintenance teams, carpenters and joiners, and others that carry out various duties on high-rise buildings.

The new Awareness Training Module provides the information you need to help spot defects and non-compliance issues on fire doors and report them so the necessary repair and maintenance work can be carried out.
