SSS exciting new collaborations and partnerships.

We have made it very clear from the start that SSS are keen to collaborate and partner with like minded people in industry. We sincerely believe that industry influencers must come together with their combined skill sets and join forces to create the most effective change.

We invite anyone appalled by the current 75% failure rate on inspection of fire doors to join us in creating a safer environment for people in this country to live, work and visit.

2024 will showcase the numerous innovative projects we are working on with new collaborators, amazing companies, leaders in their field wanting to be at the forefront of change.

February 2024 launches our SSS Passport App and Profile Checker, here is an insight of whats to come.

Monitoring every individual and company who becomes a member of the SSS Passport (FDRASNR) is no mean feat. In order to maintain our high standards, we have created the SSS Passport App. A secure digital space providing all members access to monitor their CPD, additional course work support, legislation updates, door data information and much more. The SSS App is also available in various languages. The App will be yours free of charge with your membership.

Our SSS profile checker is a valuable tool for the wider community. Anyone who requires fire door installation, maintenance or inspection will be able to utilise our easy-to-use tool to either find a reputable fire door company from our national register or to check the credentials of each individual they have on site. This will give peace of mind, your project is being completed by a SSS Passport member.

We will be showcasing the app and profile checker in the March edition.
