Wedging fire doors is illegal
Our engineers have visited hundreds of buildings whilst undertaking fire risk assessments and routinely find fire doors propped illegally open with a mixture of fire door retainers including fire door wedges, fire extinguishers, or tiebacks. This type of practice is dangerous and in direct contravention of UK Fire Safety Regulations where fire doors are used to prevent the spread of smoke and flame if there is a fire.
In the event of a fire this practice will almost ensure that the fire spreads more quickly, causing more damage and putting people’s lives at risk.
Wedging fire doors legally
There is however a legal and safe way of keeping fire doors open. Fire doors can be legally kept open using acoustic fire door retainers or an automatic door closer linked to the fire alarm system.
The Dorgard provides a wireless solution for legally holding open fire doors in any position.
