Last chance to attend free fire door safety event

Property owners, architects and facilities managers have only a few days left to register to attend a free fire door safety event, hosted by West Midlands Fire Service and ASSA ABLOY UK, the global leader in door opening solutions.

Titled ‘It’s Time To Talk About Fire Doors’, the event offers professionals the opportunity to improve their knowledge of fire door safety. Taking place at West Midland Fire Service’s headquarters in Birmingham on Thursday 28 September, the event will discuss common issues faced by professionals responsible for building design, construction and maintenance.

Representatives from West Midlands Fire Service and ASSA ABLOY UK will consider issues such as how fire doors may change in the future and the potential impact this will have on users.

The event is being run as part of Fire Door Safety Week, which takes place from Monday 25 September until Sunday 1 October.

The initiative is organised by the British Woodworking Federation to raise awareness about how third-party certified fire doors can prevent life-changing injuries.

David Hindle, Head of Door Closers at ASSA ABLOY UK, said:
“This is very timely following the sad events earlier in the year, and we are delighted to give our support to Fire Door Safety Week. This is a good time to try and improve knowledge within businesses and the public about the importance of fire doors and how they save lives.”

With registration beginning from 9:30am, the event is set to start at 9:45am and finish at 12:30pm, followed by lunch and a chance to meet with speakers and other attendees.
