Thorough Assessment Process Our inspection process initiates by concentrating on the structural integrity and correct operation of each fire door set. This includes a detailed examination of components such as the door leaf, door frame, self-closer, door hinges, door selector, locks and handles, panic hardware, apertures, and glazing. Additionally, we scrutinise passive protection features like intumescent door strips and cold smoke seals.

Fire safety signage is rigorously checked for clarity and compliance with current regulations. This comprehensive approach guarantees that every aspect of your fire doors undergoes meticulous inspection.

Aligned with Industry Standards Our inspection frequency aligns with industry standards, incorporating the recommended six-monthly inspections by BS 9999 and the monthly checks outlined in government guidance documentation. This proactive approach ensures consistent maintenance and readiness for effective performance during a fire incident.

Fire Door FAQs

What is a fire door inspection survey?

A fire door inspection survey is a comprehensive examination conducted by certified professionals to assess the condition, functionality, and compliance of fire doors within a building. This survey aims to identify any faults, damage, or wear in the components of the fire door, ensuring that it will effectively perform its crucial role in the event of a fire.

Yes, fire door inspections are a legal requirement in the UK. According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, businesses and establishments are obligated to conduct regular fire door inspections, testing, and maintenance. This statutory requirement ensures that fire doors are in optimal condition to impede the spread of fire and smoke, contributing to the overall safety of the building and its occupants. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in legal consequences and compromises the safety of the premises.

The frequency of fire door inspections depends on various factors, but it is generally recommended to perform them every three to six months. This routine ensures that fire doors are regularly assessed for structural integrity, correct operation, and compliance with safety standards. Additionally, biannual inspections, as recommended by BS 9999, supplement monthly checks to maintain the ongoing effectiveness of fire doors.

Fire doors are integral components of a building’s passive fire protection system. In the event of a fire, a properly maintained and fully functional fire door helps impede the spread of fire and smoke, creating compartments within the structure. This containment facilitates safe evacuation routes for occupants by preventing the propagation of fire. Fire doors contribute significantly to fostering a secure work environment, separating escape routes from potential hazards and providing valuable time for occupants to evacuate safely.
