It is important for schools to remain compliant with fire regulations. As large, complex operations, with potentially thousands of staff and pupils, it can be a difficult task to ensure everyone’s safety during a fire.
One thing that you can do is to install fire-rated shutters which slow the spread of fire. These devices can be linked to fire alarm systems and automatically close when the alarm is triggered, buying you precious time to secure the safety of school children and valuable property.
DT Services was called in to look at the fire shutters for this school in Hull. Their existing shutters did not offer enough fire resistance and needed to be replaced. With a fire inspection due, the school ran the risk of a large fine if they were found to be non-compliant.
With their new 4 hour shutters in place, children and staff are safer and the school can meet their fire safety obligations.
DT Services offers fire safety and automatic entry solutions for schools, allowing them to effectively safeguard staff and pupils, as well as protect the premises.
