Fire Door Retainers & Closers
Fire doors prevent fire from spreading from room to room, giving those in the building more time to evacuate. They provide critical protection for buildings by protecting escape routes and separating hazards.
It is a legal requirement that fire doors must be inspected at least once a year; this requirement could change depending on its assessed use or the criticality of the area or people it is protecting.
There are different kinds of retainers and closers that we can fit your fire doors with to ensure maximum protection in your premises.
