Places You Will Find Fire Doors

As one of the most important components of fire prevention, it is not unusual to find fire doors installed in a range of different locations. After all, the law dictates that building owners must ensure that every fire safety measure is taken care of in order to keep the people inside as safe as possible. With this said, there are some places where you are more likely to find fire doors and, in this blog, we are going to go over the top three…

Schools

Places of education will have fire drills on a regular basis in order to prepare the students in the event that the real thing takes place. Of course, this means that high-quality fire doors have to be in place in order for the children to evacuate the building. Most of the time they are marked by a running man on a green sign. With this said, many schools are also switching out their regular corridor doors in places of fire doors in order to ensure that the students are as safe as possible.

Offices

Since fire drills are not as common in offices, it is important that the majority of the doors installed there are fire doors. After all, fire doors can not only help prevent a serious fire from spreading, they are also incredibly heavy-duty- and this makes them a great way to keep an office environment safe and secure for the members of staff that work there.

Shopping Centres

As perhaps the most unprepared environment, it may be difficult to spot a fire door inside a shopping centre. After all, many of them are designed with aesthetic beauty in mind rather than functionality. With this said, the law states that all public buildings must have operational fire doors in place so whilst you may not notice them when you are shopping, they are there! Here at ABC Industrial we believe that fire doors are not only important, they are essential. After all, one that has been well maintained and correctly installed can stop a fire from spreading for up to 30 minutes, allowing people extra time to evacuate a building.
