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 occupancy building.
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.
