Fire Doors

Fire Door Assessment

We will carry out a full fire door survey of your premises. Our assessors will carry out a detailed report to include the following:

  • Stability and integrity of the door
  • Stability and integrity of the frame
  • Intumescent and smoke seal check
  • Hinges
  • Door closers
  • Ironmongery
  • Glazing and glass
  • Gaps around the door

On completion of our assessment we will supply the customer with a Survey Inspection Report. From this we will draw up an action plan prioritising work. We have experience in liasing with enforcing authorities such as the fire service and building control on new new builds and would be happy to negotiate on your behalf a schedule of work over an agreed period of time.

Our fire door installers are highly skilled carpenters that have under gone stringent training to meet the BM TRADA Q MARK certification scheme.

On completion of the work carried out on your premises we will then give you a copy of our installation sheet stating that we have installed all doors according to BS 8214.

Fire Door Maintenance

  • Fire doors and all passive fire protection products play a unique role in the fire safety of a building by containing a fire to a single compartment of a building
  • Properly maintained fire doors should be an essential part of the fire safety plan for every building
  • When a fire door is installed, it should be done so with certificated components that will ensure it achieves its fire rating
  • Over time, without the correct maintenance a fire door could fail
  • We will complete a Maintenance Inspection Sheet (MIR) to ensure your fire doors are still in working order.

All doors should have an inspection every 6 months for low usage buildings and every 3 months for high usage buildings.

Your Legal Obligation

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO)

New fire safety laws, applying to all businesses came into effect on 1st October 2006. Replacing the old fire certificate, the new law shifts the responsibility for fire safety from the fire authorities to whoever has day-to-day control of premises. Each business must appoint a responsible person, whether it is the owner, manager, facilities manager or an expert consultant to manage the fire risk to the building, those using the premises and its immediate surroundings.
