What is a Fire Door?
In the case of an emergency, fire doors fulfil a vital function by ensuring fire and smoke is contained to allow time for people to evacuate safely. It’s very important for fire doors to be maintained in good, working conditions in order to fulfil the function they are designed for.
Fire doors provide for your safety and the safety of others in the same building. By compromising the safety of doors you will put yourselves and others at risk. This includes damages and making alterations such as, additional locks, viewers, door bells or replacing letterboxes for an incorrect specification without permission.
