ASSA ABLOY UK safety event coincides with latest fire death statistics

  • 7 Sep 2017

ASSA ABLOY UK have organised a fire safety event, that will be held at West Midlands Fire headquarters on Thursday 28th September.

This is part of Fire Door Safety Week, which aims to raise awareness of how third-party certificated fire doors prevent life changing injuries.

Together with this, the latest fire statistics from the Home Office reveal 261 people died and there were more than 10,000 non-fatal casualties from fire incidents across England from April 2016 to March 2017.

ASSA ABLOY UK, the global leader in door opening solutions, will be offering practical advice, support and recommendations on how to save lives by delivering assured fire safety at all times.

Simon Gibbs, Door Closer Technical Manager at ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “Fire Door Safety Week has been utterly crucial in emphasising how important fire doors are, and how they save lives.

“Though three million fire doors are installed every year in the UK, incorrect specification, poor installation and a lack of maintenance is still common. We hope that by raising awareness among professionals involved in building design and safety, we can make this a thing of the past.

Now in its fifth year, 2017’s campaign will highlight the critical role of fire doors in high rise buildings, houses of multiple occupancy and other types of shared accommodation.

Beginning at 9am, the half-day event will conclude at approximately 1pm, with light refreshments available for attendees.
