Pyroplex is an active supporter of Fire Door Safety Week (FDSW) whose aim is to stop the legacy of neglect and promote awareness of the critical importance of fire doors in preventing life changing injuries and the legal responsibilities of managing fire door safety. FDSW, now in its fifth year, will run from 25th September to 1st October.

A correctly specified fire door plays a vital role in a fire protection strategy. It can lessen fire damage to the building and most importantly, safeguard lives. Therefore, to provide the most effective protection, the components used in and around the fire door are of the utmost importance. One break in the chain due to poor installation or an ineffective component can result in a dramatic and undesirable outcome.
