What is Fire Door Safety Week?
This week is Fire Door Safety Week 2020. Held every year, this week is a campaign to raise awareness and provide knowledge about the importance of fire doors and the role they play in protecting life and property. The campaign is managed by the British woodworking federation and is supported by a number of partners including the Home Office’s National Fire Safety Campaign, the National Fire Chiefs Council and the London Fire Brigade.
- To raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance.
- 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.
- 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.
