Mind the Gap

Fire doors are a crucial part of the passive fire protection of every commercial, public and multiple occupancy building. They save lives and property!

GEZE UK has once again pledged their support to the Fire Door Safety Week campaign, which takes place from 25th September to 1st October 2017. The campaign 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.

The campaign offers help and advice to building owners, building users, facilities managers and contractors. From advice on simple checks to make sure fire doors are safe, including how to use a gap tester, to choosing a fire door installer, the website is an invaluable source of information.

As part of Fire Door Safety Week GEZE UK is offering a free gap tester to any specifier or facilities manager that emails them at info.ukspamfilter@gezespamfilter.com before the end of October. Designed to measure the gap between the door frame and door leaf this handy little tool can immediately tell you if the gap around the fire door is more than the recommended 3mm.

GEZE UK also offer a RIBA approved CPD seminar entitled ‘Specifying, Installing and Maintaining Ironmongery for Fire Doors’, it looks at the components of a fire door and the part they each play in fire safety. A seminar can be arranged by contacting the company.

Fire safety has always been a priority for GEZE and their comprehensive range of overhead door closers and automatic swing door drives have been extensively tested and awarded appropriate fire certification.
