Fire Door Safety Week 2019
Fire Door Safety Week runs each September and aims to:
) Raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance.
) Encourage building owners and users to check the operation and condition of their fire doors and to report those that aren’t satisfactory.
) Link together the initiatives of many organisations with common interests in the fire door and passive fire protection industries.
) Engage and educate people, helping the whole building industry and every property owner to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors.

Arnold Laver fire door safety days are co-hosted with BWF-CERTIFIRE Scheme to discuss the growing concern of fire safety in UK buildings.

How it works
The free CPD accredited event covers an array of subjects centred on the latest developments in specification, certification, inspection methods and procedures. Case studies are used to explain how fire doors work and underpin the pivotal role they play in saving lives and limiting the damage caused to buildings.
The event is set out to inform those responsible for specifying, installing and maintaining passive fire protection methods such as fire doors and raise awareness among building firms and the merchant sector.
