Yale is continuing its commitment to improving fire safety in residential buildings with its support of Fire Door Safety week, an annual initiative designed to raise awareness of the critical role of fire doors.

The campaign, which runs from the 24th September to 30th September, aims to draw attention to specific issues within the fire door industry, such as poor installation and maintenance, and will encourage building owners and specifiers to be more proactive when checking the operation and condition of current fire doors.

This year’s initiative is more important than ever after current legislation for fire safety in high-risk residential buildings is under scrutiny following the Dame Judith Hackitt review.

Brett Evans, Technical Director for Door Hardware at Yale Door and Window Solutions, commented: “Fire safety should be regarded with critical importance. The recent Hackitt review has definitely been a step in the right direction, but we hope this year’s Fire Door Safety week initiative can further the good work done and propel issues surrounding fire door safety into the mainstream. That’s why we’re proud to support Fire Door Safety week to help engage and educate property owners to end users on the importance of fire safety.

“At Yale, we have a wide range of door hardware specifically designed to help building owners and contractors ensure they meet or exceed the required fire safety standards. For example, we have recently updated Lockmaster Panic Exit device for improved fabrication, installation and use. Instead of using adjustable bosses, the device now features straight through fixings to guarantee smoother operation.”

The Yale portfolio also includes the Yale AutoSecure – a multi-point locking system that can assist with gaining fire safety accreditation. The lock can be instrumental in achieving FD60 and contributes to satisfying fire safety requirements.

Additionally, Yale’s leading Platinum 3 Star cylinder is available in a thumbturn variant, to save homeowners the search for keys in the event of a fire.
