To answer this regularly asked question, one of Safelincs’ fire door assessors has created a short fire door help guide. It lists the main legal frameworks relating to fire doors and offers an easy-to-understand overview of applications for FD30 and FD60 fire doors.
We also have a library of help files in our fire door help section which offers further guidance:
– Fire Door Help & Information
– Fire Door Closers Overview
– Types of Fire Door Retainers
– Directory of Fire Door Installers
– Nominal Fire Doors
– Use of Existing Fire Door Frames
If you have very specific questions relating to fire doors, you can also discuss these on our fire safety forum where fire safety experts will answer your questions.
Safelincs also offers fire door assessments as well as the manufacture of standard and made-to-measure fire doors. We pride ourselves to be able to supply you with everything from information and advice to complete fire doors and all required fire door hardware.

Purchasing defibrillators for schools, sports clubs and businesses can be a challenge. What are semi-automatic and fully-automatic defibrillators and which of these are suitable for non-professional staff? When should a defibrillator be applied? What training is required and how do we look after the defibrillators’ maintenance?
To help with these questions we have created a thorough but easy-to-read guide ‘Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) – a guide to their purpose, design and maintenance’.
Some of our customers have also been concerned about their legal obligations once they have installed a defibrillator. Could an AED cause harm to a person being resuscitated? Could there be litigation if a defibrillator should be used incorrectly?
Again, we have tried to answer these questions in a helpful and accessible manner in our guide ‘The use of automated external defibrillators: some health and safety / legal considerations’.
This guide will help you put your concerns in perspective and offers some easy steps with regards to minimising risks.
