Wicket Doors - A Health and Safety Solution

Fire Exits are compsulsory within a work premises.  Sometimes there is no wall space available to have one.  There is another solution.  A Wicket Door!

A Wicket Door can be a tad tricky to operate; as a result, it would not be the first solution we would recommend for a fire exit. 

However, when no other options are on offer, it is a solution.

The Fire Exit Door featured here would be the ideal health and safety solution.  Secure and easy to open.

A Wicket Door serves the purpose of emergency access; but it does not come with a multi-point locking system.  Nonetheless, it does give adequate security and provides ease of access.

That's not to say a wicket door is not useful.  Here are some of its plus points:

  • Ease of access - making the opening more efficient for personnel.
  • Safety - provides a quick escape in an emergency.
  • Space saver - leaving wall space free for other uses such as equipment.
  • Energy saver - The main shutter door does not have to be lifted each time you enter; so can be left down during cold weather.
