Screwfix Opens Its Doors On Safety Products #Firedoorsafetyweek this September

By September 14, 2018News

Once again Screwfix are supporting #FireDoorsafetyWeek, from 25th September to 1st October and as part of this support there is up to 25% off fire safety products in their latest catalogue, in-store or online at www.screwfix.com.

With around 3 million new fire doors bought and installed every year in the UK, they are an important first line of defense in the case of a fire outbreak.  It is therefore vital that they are correctly specified, maintained and managed. Installing an internal fire door correctly, helps to prevent the spread of fire throughout a building and helps to give people time to vacate safely.

Screwfix offer an extensive range of fire doors and fire safety equipment such as smoke and CO alarms, emergency exit/panic hardware, signage, door releases and fire extinguishers.

The fire doors are available in various finishes to match homes or businesses and are rated to FD30, offering 30 minutes fire resistance. Every fire door has to be tested and certified with all its components in place. All components that are fitted to the fire doors must be compatible to ensure the correct performance. Fire doors are functional items and have to meet a number of regulations such as sound, accessibility, ventilation, thermal efficiency and safety glazing as well as the other obvious fire safety requirements.

Unfortunately, wherever fire doors are installed they are often overlooked, neglected or worse still, get wedged open! In fact, in a recent government survey, just over one third (39%) of those with fire doors admitted they have seen one propped open in their building, as a result they are putting lives at risk.

Some of the fire safety product available from Screwfix include;-
