Primarily, Fire Door Safety Week exists to raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance. Through mass awareness, we can work together to stamp out the legacy of fire door neglect.
In everyday use the simple purpose of a fire door is just as any other door. However, since the break-out of a fire is never predictable, a fire door, unlike any other door must perform to its prime purpose – to delay the spread of fire and smoke; protecting lives and property.
Fire Door Safety Week was launched in 2013 in response to a legacy of fire door neglect. It is a ‘mass market’ awareness campaign to increase public understanding of the role that fire doors play in protecting life and property.
