Is your New Year’s resolution to check the condition of your fire doors? If not maybe it should be. Having fire doors that aren’t fit for purpose isn’t just bad practice, it’s against the law!
Protect your building and its inhabitants by taking precautions, after all, as a building owner or manager, you have a legal duty to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order! This regulation states that you must have a maintenance regime in place to ensure that ‘all relevant equipment is in an efficient state, including fire doors.'
This is where Yeoman Shield fire rated door protection products come in. Though they won’t affect the doors fire integrity, they will safeguard them from damage and wear and tear, keeping them working efficiently and capable of preventing the spread or smoke and flames if a fire were to occur.
