A Day in the Life
“I read the news today – oh boy, two thousand faults found in fire doors.”
I doubt that John or Paul would have picked up this statistic, if writing their iconic song for the Sergeant Pepper album today, but this should be headline news.
A walk around the majority of public buildings, will show that doors that have been fitted to provide fire safety to occupants are not fit for purpose. It is for this very reason that that Fire Door Safety Week found its voice.
The purpose of the week is to raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors, encourage building owners and users to check the operational and condition of their fire doors, and engage and educate the built environment and every property owner to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors.
The Fire Door Inspection Scheme is an excellent resource for educating anybody that needs to understand the critical nature of fire doors and their components. The on-line E leaning modules can be accessed easily via the FDIS web site and provide real value for money to those studying the diploma. The scheme also has a number of Certified Inspectors who have the experience and knowledge to inspect and label doors on behalf of clients and building owners.
During Fire Door Safety Week, representatives from FDIS will be speaking at a number of events about the real benefits the scheme offers.
Please come along and hear our song as, in the words of the Fab Four, ‘we’d love to turn you on’.
