The importance of fire safety in hotels and leisure facilities cannot be overstated. In the hotel and leisure industry, where hundreds of guests and staff congregate in a shared space, stringent fire safety measures are not merely a compliance issue, but an essential commitment to safety.
With a legacy spanning over 130 years, Sentry Doors are the supplier of choice for hotels and leisure facilities across the UK. Trust in our expertise to offer the utmost level of protection, enabling you to concentrate on delivering exceptional experiences for your guests.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (“the Fire Safety Order”) is the main legislation that controls fire safety in all premises in England that provide accommodation for paying guests. The order designates the Responsible Person(s), who could be the employer, the person in control of the premises, or the owner, based on context. This individual is charged with ensuring that emergency routes and exits lead as directly as possible to a place of safety, facilitating swift and safe evacuation.
In addition to the general fire safety regulations outlined by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, hotels and leisure facilities must adhere to Article 50 regarding paying guest accommodation. In paying guest accommodation, it’s essential that all fire-rated doors must be kept closed, especially at night, to protect areas like lounges, kitchens, or utility rooms used by guests.
Inside the premises, fire doors should be treated as notional fire doors, except those leading to bathrooms, toilets or cupboards. These doors do not need to be self-closing but should be advised to be kept closed. The front entrance door of any establishment should be a self-closing fire door and any entrance hall or stairs must offer at least 30 minutes of fire protection.
The Fire Safety Risk Assessment for Sleeping Accommodation focuses on premises where the main use is for sleeping accommodation and emphasises the importance of fire-resisting doors, walls and floors in your building.
In hotels and leisure facilities, the health and safety of guests and employees is extremely important. In these environments, where there are often large numbers of people day and night, ensuring a robust safety plan is not only a legal obligation but also a critical component of responsible operation.
At Sentry Doors, we understand the importance of maintaining safety and compliance. Our fire-rated doorsets for hotels and leisure facilities not only meet but exceed safety standards, providing peace of mind for all.
