Fire door safety matters!
The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) made a series of hard-hitting videos at BRE’s headquarters in Watford for Fire Door Safety Week. The purpose of Fire Door Safety Week is to highlight the importance of fire doors being fit for purpose and the need for third party certification.
BWF reported that in 2016 60% of fire doors had problems with their fire and smoke seals and over 20% had unsuitable hinges.
Stephen Howard, Director of Fire Testing & Certification at BRE, presented at the CFOA conference on the 16th October. His session covered reaction to fire testing, fire resistance testing and an update on BRE’s progress with establishing a notified body in Ireland. The day was a great success - attended by 70 Chief Fire Officers across Ireland and the UK.
