Fire door checklist

Fire doors are designed to prevent the spread of smoke, flames and toxic gases throughout a building in the event of a fire. Legally, a building’s fire doors must be self-closing to ensure the door closes to act as a barrier that stops the fire from spreading. It is recognised that it is sometimes necessary to hold fire doors open for practical reasons e.g. easing access, increasing ventilation.  

Wedging open fire doors with a wooden wedge will put the people in the building at risk. The door will not automatically close if it held open this way. If you want to hold the fire door open, it must have a device installed to release the door, so that it will close upon activation of the fire alarm system.

Fire door retainers such as the Agrippa magnetic fire door holder are fitted hygienically to the top of the door and use a magnet to hold open heavy fire doors that will release in the event of a fire. 

The Agrippa fire door closer is fitted in place of a traditional door closer to hold the fire door open in any position, whilst ensuring the door will close in the event of a fire.

Fire safety is a vital consideration for any business, large or small, which protects your employees and your building assets.
