Check your doors on Fire Door Safety Week

We are pleased to be supporting Fire Door Safety Week.  To help us keep you safe we want to give you simple tips on #FireDoorSafetyWeek to check a fire door.

Tip 1 – Gaps – Check the gaps around the top and sides of the door are consistently less than 4mm when the door’s closed. The gap under the door can be slightly larger (up to 8mm), but it does depend on the door. Ideally, you should not see light under the door.

Tip 2 – Hinges – Check the hinges and make sure all hinges are firmly fixed with no missing or broken screws

Tip 3 – Seals – Check the seals around the door or frame are intact with no signs of damage.

Tip 4  – Closing properly – Check the door closes firmly onto the latch without sticking on the floor or the frame.
