Pledging its support for this year’s Fire Door Safety Week campaign, leading specialist retailer, IronmongeryDirect, has published a number of useful fire safety resources on its website to help professional builders and contractors comply with the latest regulations.
Visitors to IronmongeryDirect’s website will have access to in depth guides and a fire door checklist on a dedicated hub to help ensure the correct and safe specification of compliant fire-rated hardware.
This year’s Fire Door Safety Week runs between 31 October – 4 November. Now in its ninth year, the scheme aims to raise awareness and understanding of the critical role that fire doors play in protecting life and property as passive fire protection (PFP) in buildings.
In line with this, IronmongeryDirect has updated its website to help make the specification of its fire-rated products as easy as possible, with a number of useful resources that can be easily accessed in one place.
The resources include a fire door safety checklist which highlights the key areas and hardware on a fire door that need to be checked, fitted and maintained correctly in order for it to comply with regulations and function as intended in the event of a fire. The checklist is also available to download, making it easy for customers to print and refer to when working on various jobs.
IronmongeryDirect has also developed two comprehensive buyers’ guides on fire protection and door closers which have been added to the hub. Providing detailed guidance on regulatory requirements, key considerations and information on suitable hardware, the guides are a valuable resource to aid the specification process.
Dominick Sandford, Managing Director at IronmongeryDirect, says: “The British Woodworking Federation’s Fire Door Safety Week campaign serves as a vital reminder of the crucial role of the door leaf and all components of a fire door doorset in the protection against flames and smoke – in order to save lives.
“The correct specification and maintenance of all elements is critical and as an annual supporter of this campaign, we are delighted to help our customers achieve the highest safety standards with our informative resources and guides.”
