Fire door safety week proves a success

It’s been fantastic to see so many people backing the fire door safety week campaign this year – over 350 organisations supported the campaign, meaning that there were a phenomenal 2,726 toolkit downloads.

Raising awareness of the importance of properly installing, maintaining and using fire safety doors is a vital, lifesaving issue, and it’s great to see so many organisations taking the campaign forward and spreading the word, helping to protect lives throughout the country.

In the wake of the Grenfell fire, fire safety has been in the news and in people’s minds, with safety regulations being monitored to ensure that risks are reduced and changes are implemented across the UK, aiming to ensure that such a significant disaster never happens again. Proper use of fire safety doors is one of the steps which can make all the difference, and the campaign details the ways in which proper fire safety door use matters.

The British Woodworking Federation has commissioned five powerful films that detail the importance of the campaign and the thousands of views show that people are taking fire door safety seriously – with a further 3,385 people tweeting about their involvement. This flood of discussion means that the campaign has been seen by tens of thousands of people, making it one of the most successful to date.

Installing fire safety doors means that, should your property catch fire, the heat and smoke can be isolated, protecting the rest of the building and the people within; all too often we discover these doors being improperly used, blocked, locked, propped open or otherwise inefficient.

Knowing that lives can be saved, we take fire door safety seriously, and this campaign has gone a long way to keeping the issue in the forefront of people’s minds.
