Team CTS supports Fire Door Safety Week and ensures team members are fully trained with the appropriate skill set for fitting fire doors.
A fire door is an engineered safety device that is a crucial
part of the passive fire protection of every commercial, public and multiple
In everyday use, the simple purpose of a fire door is just as any other door. However, since the break-out of a fire is never predictable, a fire door, unlike any other door must perform to its prime purpose which is to delay the spread of fire and smoke; protecting lives and property.
When a fire happens, it is the compartmentalisation of fire
through the correct specification and installation of well-maintained fire
doors that buy us time, creating safe refuge and a protected route for the
emergency services to come to our aid.
Fire Door Safety Week was launched in 2013 in response to a legacy of fire door neglect. It is a ‘mass market’ awareness campaign to increase public understanding of the role that fire doors play in protecting life and property. CTS is happy to help spread awareness for this campaign.

CTS Projects pledged its support for Gas Safety Week by teaming up with clients, to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
The ninth annual Gas Safety Week sees organisations from across the UK working together to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
CTS Projects has pledged its support for Gas Safety Week (16th – 22nd September 2019), and will be attending client property schemes to raise awareness about the importance of gas safety.
Monday 16th September – we will be attending Brandon Court and Parkgate House (Habinteg)
Tuesday 17th September – we will be attending 68 Lower Braniel Road (Connswater)
Wednesday 18th September – we will be attending Caffrey Park (Clanmil)
Friday 20th September – we will be attending 104 Holywood Road (Triangle)
This year, Gas Safety Week is addressing a whole range of gas safety matters with a focus on addressing the needs of the most vulnerable – from advice about how to keep vulnerable loved ones gas safe, to raising awareness of using a registered engineer who is legally qualified, to ensure consumers don’t become vulnerable to illegal gas work though lack of awareness.
Jonathan Samuel, chief executive for Gas Safe Register, said: “It’s great to see so many people supporting Gas Safety Week this year to help spread important and, in some cases, lifesaving advice about gas safety. It’s so vital that we help people to know not to cut corners with gas and always ask a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer to work on gas appliances at their home to stay gas safe.”
To keep you and your family safe, follow Gas Safe Register’s top tips:
the symptoms of CO poisoning; headaches, nausea, breathlessness, collapse,
dizziness and loss of consciousness.
you smell gas or think there might be a gas leak, call the free 24-hour
national gas emergency number immediately on 0800 111
Never attempt to work on a gas appliance yourself, always seek the help of a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer who can work on your gas cooker, boiler or fire in a safe way.
Don’t cut corners – only employ a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer when having gas work carried out in your home.
Always ask to see your engineer’s Gas Safe ID card. Make sure you check the back of the card, which will state which gas appliances they are qualified to work on.
Here at CTS we are always striving for excellence and aiming to exceed expectations. We want to share a good news story that has occurred from work carried out by the CTS team.
On Friday(30th August), members of the team visited Mrs Teggart (pictured above) who is a tenant of our clients, Habinteg Housing Association. She was the winner of a random draw which took place with all feedback from tenants.
Mrs Teggart was delighted with some of the recent work carried out by the CTS team as she quotes ‘I Just wanted to commend the workers who attended our property.
‘The plumbers who replaced the valve on the hot water cylinder did an excellent job and were determined to get the problem sorted on the day no matter what.
‘We have never had such good water pressure and it is such a treat to be able to bath, shower and wash dishes without having to wait ages for the water.
‘Likewise, with the bedroom window catch, it is lovely not to have all the noise from the street keeping us awake.
‘I really cannot recommend these particular workmen enough.’
