ASSA ABLOY UK Supports Fire Door Safety Week

27 Sep 2016

ASSA ABLOY UK, has pledged its support for Fire Door Safety Week. The awareness week aims to promote the critical role of fire doors, drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance.

Door closers play a critical part in fire and smoke protection; it is essential that those responsible for fire safety within organisations ensure the correct door closers are installed.

ASSA ABLOY UK’s extensive range of UNION and ASSA ABLOY door closers includes the ASSA ABLOY DC700G-FM Free-Motion® door closer, which is the first door closer for door widths up to 1400mm that combines a free-swing function with Cam-Motion® technology. This allows users to operate fire doors with the same low forces as non-fire doors and replicates the absence of a door closer, but offers reliable closing in the event of a fire.

Panic and emergency exit devices are also a fundamental part of fire door safety and UNION’s Eximo® range includes, panic latches and bolts, emergency push pads and outside access products with lever and knob variants.

David Hindle Head of Door Closer Sales at ASSA ABLOY UK, said: 'We are proud to support a campaign that engages and educates people, helping the whole building industry and every property owner to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors.'

From our range of ASSA ABLOY and UNION door closers, to UNION’s Eximo® panic and emergency exit device offering, we have a wide product offering that can help building owners to ensure the condition of their fire doors, exceeds the required standards.
