Allegion to raise awareness of fire door safety at FIREX show

Allegion UK, manufacturer of fire safety hardware and notably of ‘Briton’ door controls, is preparing to raise awareness on the importance of fire door safety at FIREX International 2023, taking place between 16-18 May at the ExCeL, London.

Across the three-day event, Allegion’s door hardware experts are aiming to connect with visitors on stand F1.1217, and will share comprehensive on-site guidance on the selection, installation and maintenance of fire door hardware, alongside live demonstrations of the highly popular Briton 376 Series Panic Exit Device and Briton Cam-action Door Closers.

Allegion will also showcase its latest set of Briton best practice guides at the show, designed to provide a broader understanding of fire door safety in commercial, education and healthcare building environments. The three ‘Fire Door Safety in Review’ guides have been compiled using expert insight and original research from relevant sectors and emphasize a fundamental misunderstanding towards fire safety responsibility and fire door hardware across all three fields.

Discussing Allegion’s visit, Kirk Smith, business development manager at Allegion UK, commented: “The significance of architectural ironmongery to a building’s passive fire safety system can’t be understated, and FIREX 2023 provides us with the perfect platform to connect with professionals as we prepare to raise awareness and improve knowledge on a number of pressing fire door safety themes.
