Propped open fire doors are a significant health and safety risk. They are intended only for access and should be left closed at all other times. If they are propped open, they are no longer an effective fire and smoke barrier.
Add to that the legal risks relating to fire safety, and it can be a real risk to businesses if employees do not respect fire doors. Fire Door Monitor is an innovative solution that allows your nominated fire safety representative to discharge their legal responsibilities with the minimum of fuss.
Compliance with Fire Safety Legislation
Fire door monitor also monitors and maintains records of inspections carried out under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 BS 9999. The law stipulates that inspections must be carried out on all fire doors every six months. The legislation places responsibility on a designated fire officer (which is the owner or managing director of the company if no-one is specifically named as such) to carry out these inspections.
RFID Technology for Fire Safety
The Fire Door Monitor System uses RFID transponders placed at each fire door/ The our software manages the inspection schedules and informs the responsible person whenever inspections fall due. Wireless magnetic catches are installed onto each fire door, which allows it to be opened only for a maximum specified time. The system then sends an SMS or email alert to the fire officer to visit the site. A full reporting suite is available, so it is possible to see which of your fire doors are being opened and for how long.
Easy to Integrate
Fire Door Monitor is easy to integrate into your building. As a cloud-based system, it can link to your existing internet gateway or it can be used in a totally self-contained way over a 3G connection. In this configuration, there is no need to run wires, and it does not need to use your existing network. We simply attach wireless devices to each of the doors and ensure they are all within range of the Hub. Repeaters can be used in order to extend the range of the hub which is then connected to the internet via an existing gateway or self-contained 3G.
Low-Cost Fire Door Monitoring
The Fire Door Monitor software is available for a low-cost monthly fee. The only thing you need to purchase up front are the hardware sensors for each door and the hub. You then pay a monthly subscription for your continued peace of mind. Call us today on 01482 424402 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
