We take fire safety incredibly seriously at Six Town Housing and would therefore like to remind you of some of the regulations we have in place to keep you safe.
The new flat fire doors installed in some tenant's and residents’ homes are fire tested and fitted by an accredited installer to ensure they are safe. Tenants and residents should not carry out any work or adjustments to the doors, including reducing the height to facilitate the laying of carpet or even painting the door or frame. If you think a flat fire door requires repair or adjustment, then please get in contact with us here.
One of the easily tampered with items on flat fire doors can be the self-closing device which ensures that the door shut correctly. If you feel that a fire door has been damaged or altered, then please let us know here.
Keeping our Communal Areas clear and safe.
We carry out regular inspections of the Communal Areas to ensure that they remain clear of obstructions and improve your safety.
Our inspections are occasionally finding that some tenants are leaving items such as bikes, washing maidens and sometimes items of furniture in the communal areas.
It is essential that communal areas are always kept clear of obstructions so that in an emergency, people can evacuate safely across landings, corridors and down staircases and out of the building.Back to news
