Self-closing devices on fire doors

Self-closing devices are an important feature of your door as they will help keep you and your family safe in the event of a fire.

If a fire occurs inside a flat, the self-closing device will close the door tightly back into the frame. This will prevent any fire spreading from the flat into the communal parts of the building.

It is important that your self-closing device remains in good condition and in working order.

The self-closing device should close your flat entrance door past the door lock into the frame to form a tight seal.

It is also a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (fire safety) Order 2005 that all flat entrance doors have self-closing devices fitted and are in working order.

You should never tamper with or remove your self-closing device for this reason, if you find any problems with your self-closing device, or have any questions please contact us.
