Fire Doors Widnes - Key Facts

 In the past, we’ve seen some terrible high profile fire cases, such as the Grenfell Tower disaster back in 2017. Following, we felt it was necessary to upskill our teams and ensure something like this doesn’t happen again. We made it mandatory for our employees to attend classes and seminars in this area to broaden their knowledge, skills and qualifications.

These certifications now allow us to construct and install fire safety and protection products to buildings such as offices, warehouses, factories, apartment blocks and more. 

Three sets of the fire door hinged are usually recommended for each door and they must be fire-rated. Fire door signs should also be fitted on each side of the door. 

Fire door frames should be the same rating as the fire door (ideally purchased as a set). If you wish to paint fire door, you are able to so. Fire doors can be painted using regular decorative paint.

We have strong attributes and capabilities when it comes to fire door installations, in particular for commercial and industrial premises.

Why Fire Door Compartmentation & Fire Stopping?

You may be wondering why fire door compartmentation and fire stopping? It’s a good question to ask because your new knowledge could save someone’s life. Being proactive in this area and always aiming to improve your standards is music to our ears. Not even from a business perspective but simply from a safety standpoint. Going above and beyond to protect your staff members, employees, tenants, friends, family, teams and more is the sign of a true leader.

The fire compartmentation service itself is the subdivision of buildings into smaller, more manageable areas of risk. The reason for this is that if a fire were to happen and spread then there would be multiple means for escaping across the entire building itself. For example, if a fire were to happen in a main corridor and you were in a different office room, you’d have an exit and protected space in which to get out of, thus avoiding the fire area
