Your flat’s gate functions as a safety barrier while the main entrance door acts as a fire safety barrier. Inspect them regularly to identify any issues requiring maintenance.
Find out how to fix the bolts on your gate if they cannot slot or retract properly.
Find out what to do should you encounter difficulty in opening or closing your door.
All fire-rated doors at the entrance of HDB flats are installed with a door closer. This is a self-closing safety device that must not be removed. The door closer will keep the door closed during a fire. The fire-rated door will contain the fire within the unit, preventing the spread of smoke and fire to the corridor.
You may find that the door closes too fast or is unable to shut on its own.
