Geofire supports Fire Door Safety Week

23 Sep 2016

Geofire will be giving its support to Fire Door Safety Week by highlighting the importance of fire doors and encouraging property managers to consider wire-free fire door products.

Now in its third year, Fire Door Safety Week aims to raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors and encourage building owners to check the operation and condition of their fire doors.

From 26th September to 2nd October, the fire door industry will get together hosting events, competitions, webinars and training sessions to help raise awareness of the importance of fire doors.

Innovators of fire technology, Geofire, will be running a competition throughout the week for fire safety product installers and specifiers. For your chance to win a Kindle Fire, go to www.geofire.co.uk during Fire Door Safety Week to submit your answers before 3rd October.

There are around three million fire doors bought every year in the UK, often without a thought given to fire door holding and closing devices. If a fire door is kept open for ease of access or ventilation and does not close in the event of a fire, the building and its inhabitants will not be protected and the fire door deemed useless.

Geofire designs and manufactures a range of fire door holding and closing devices that can be discreetly fitted to the top of any fire door. Based in County Durham, the company has been manufacturing fire products for over 40 years. With a range of solutions available depending on the installation, Geofire offers hard-wired, radio controlled and more recently acoustic solutions, all recognised by the UK fire brigade.

Andy Collinson, CEO of Geofire urges those responsible to act quickly: “Wedging open a fire door can kill in the event of a fire. If ease of movement around a building or increased ventilation is necessary, then there are legally compliant solutions readily available.
