You may have noticed contractors in the communal areas replacing or adjusting the doors. These doors are fire doors and are designed to hold back a fire for 30 minutes giving Fire Fighters time to put out a fire or get residents to safety.

 

These fire doors have a crucial role to play in the ‘compartmentation’ of a building which help stop a fire from spreading. It is therefore imperative that these doors are well maintained and adhere to current legislation to ensure the safety of the building and all the residents.
