Fire door safety experts have noticed a huge increase in interest in the first six months of the year, according to new figures from the BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door and Doorset Scheme.
The BWF-CERTIFIRE website has received more than 26,000 visits from 21,215 unique visitors in the UK since January 2013, an increase of more than 350% on the same period last year.

Since the end of March, the time of the Lakanal House fire inquest verdict, there has been a particularly marked increase in the unique page views for information regarding the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and other fire safety regulations. The latest BWF-CERTIFIRE video, with tips on installation of fire doors, was published on YouTube last month and is already attracting hundred of views.

These figures indicate a serious and growing demand for information about fire doors, especially through online channels.

In order to reach a wider audience BWF-CERTIFIRE has also become one of the first organisations to make its CPD content available on the Building Academy website, an online learning platform tailored specifically to those working in the built environment.

The content consists of a series of videos explaining the vital role of fire doors and what needs to be done to ensure they work correctly and fulfil their purpose in protecting lives and property. Advice is provided on current legal regulations, technologies, and strategies for fire door maintenance and assessment.
