Case Study – KFC Gaps Under Fire Door
Gaps under fire doors minimises the effectiveness which defeats the object of having them in place, which is exactly why our client, KFC called us in to fix fire doors.
One of our regular clients called us with an issue related to the gap at the bottom of a fire exit door. Information received from the client was that there is a large gap at the bottom of the door and for health & safety reasons this gap had to be minimised. The main problem from our side was that it was an aluminium door so not the easiest door to work with. After a few conversations with the management team, we found out that a simple draft excluder brush would not be acceptable.
Our engineer attended site to inspect the gap and take various measurements to see if it was within the fire door gap tolerances. He then left the site and used his previous experience and knowledge to come up with a solution that the client would be happy with. He tailor-made a metal bar with a rubber seal at the bottom to fit the bottom of the door eliminating all fire door gaps!
