Guidance from DIO regarding internal fire doors in SFA to help keep you and your family safe:
Internal fire doors in your property
Many SFA have fire doors fitted, especially SFA that have an integral garage and are over two storeys. Building regulations require that these properties are fitted with self-closing fire doors to all habitable rooms for fire safety.
The potential risk
These fire doors can close sharply and there is a risk that young children could trap their fingers on the hinge or closing sides of the door as it shuts. Please take care with young children around these doors for their safety and protection.
If you are concerned that your fire door may be faulty, or shuts too quickly, please contact Amey to request for the door to be inspected.
