Fire doors

Fire doors are an important safety feature of any building in which people work or visit, as they offer resistance to the spread of fire and smoke and limiting its effects on occupants’ escape. They are particularly important elements of fire protection on escape routes and as such, the Heads of Departments are to ensure regular checks of fire doors in premises and monitoring their condition for effective operation.
