Ditch the Door Wedge: Here’s Why Fire Doors Must Be Unobstructed

dormakaba-security-Why_Fire_Doors_Must_Be_UnobstructedaIn facilities with high people flow such as restaurants, offices, or care homes, a closed door can be a hindrance in daily life. Especially following a hectic schedule, one might not always have a free hand to control a door. Even if they did, especially at a time when hand hygiene is a bigger priority than ever, people might be reluctant to touch a door. Thus, many in this situation give into the common impulse to keep these doors permanently open by using a wedge.

4 Ways to Prevent Tailgating

Tailgating, the passage of an unauthorized person behind authorized personnel, is one of the most common physical security breaches. Also known as “piggybacking”, tailgating often results from a random act of kindness such as holding the door to a stranger. It can be seamless and a lot less suspicious to follow an authorized person rather than breaking into a building. Those with criminal intentions are well aware of this.

How Cities Can Fight Cybercrime

As our societies are embracing Industry 4.0, everything is getting digitized and automated. It’s now possible to perform an increasing number of daily activities — anything from our jobs, education, and even many of our hobbies — online. Unfortunately, the same goes for criminals: Cybercrime is on the rise, and it’s expected to cost the world USD 10.5 trillion annually by 2025.

The Ultimate Guide to Fire Doors: The 5 Critical Points to Consider

Fires are among the most dangerous and costly accidents that can happen in a building. In 2018, in the US alone, there was a civilian fire death every 2 hours and 24 minutes, taking almost 3,000 lives and costing USD 25.6 billion in direct property loss. These accidents are devastating and not always preventable: It can take less than five minutes for a fire to engulf an entire property. When a tragedy as such occurs, every minute or a second is precious and can save lives. However, a robust “fire door”, a door with a fire-resistance rating, can help to contain fires in one room or can slow down the process of spreading.

How to Plan Accessible Evacuation Routes for Office Buildings

Emergencies and accidents can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere, including the workplace. The United States Department of Labor includes both natural and humanmade incidents as a workplace emergency. These include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, toxic gas releases, chemical spills, radiological accidents, explosions, civil disturbances, and workplace violence resulting in bodily harm and trauma. Depending on the type of emergency, the responses vary and might necessitate sheltering, a lockdown, or an evacuation.
