Between Monday 25th September to 1st October we will be putting out blog posts to advise you on fire door monitoring and how to meet your fire door inspection obligations under the Regulatory Reform Order (Fire Safety) 2005 (RRO). You can pledge your support for Fire Door Safety Week by sharing our posts and tweeting with the hashtag #FireDoorSafetyWeek.
Fire Doors – Did You Know…?
- Around 2.5 million certified fire doors are bought and installed in the UK every single year
- 75% of tradespeople have noticed a fire door that is blocked or obstructed when working with businesses
- 58% have spotted accessibility problems with fire doors in commercial and public buildings
- 63% say that the most common fault they see is fire doors that do not close properly
Make Sure Your Fire Doors are Kept Closed
It can be tough to keep an eye on all of your fire doors, especially if your business spans multiple sites. The responsible person under the Regulatory Reform Order cannot be everywhere at once, and in smaller businesses, it is simply impossible to employ an army of fire wardens. The penalties for breaching the rules on fire safety are stiff, though – and the consequences are not worth thinking about if a fire broke out and you had not kept your fire doors well maintained.
Fire Door Monitor – The Fire Door Inspection App
Digitalquill’s Fire Door Monitor is a complete fire door inspection system. It uses RFID systems to ensure that doors are kept closed, and your responsible person is alerted immediately by the fire door inspection software when a fire door is kept open for too long. Using our fire door inspection app, you can even record 31-point checks on your fire doors, saving you time and keeping proper records automatically.
