ASSA ABLOY opens conversations around fire door safety

More than 60 facilities managers, architects and door hardware installers attended an event hosted by ASSA ABLOY UK to discuss fire door safety at West Midlands Fire Service’s headquarters in Birmingham.

The event – ‘It’s Time To Talk About Fire Doors’ – featured talks from Steve Shoker, Fire Safety Officer at West Midlands Fire Service; Dan Cooling, Associate at integrated building design business One Creative; and Ian Humphries, Planning Maintenance Officer at the University of Birmingham.

With fire safety front of mind following the tragic incident at Grenfell Tower this year, the talks discussed the challenges faced by professionals responsible for managing building design, construction and maintenance, offering invaluable insights into how to check fire doors are properly installed and maintained.

Representatives from ASSA ABLOY UK also took to the stage to outline typical issues surrounding fire doors and a best practice guide to specifying door hardware, with opportunities to answer key questions from the audience following these sessions.

The event was run as part of Fire Door Safety Week, an organised by the British Woodworking Federation to raise awareness about how third-party certified fire doors can prevent life-changing injuries.
