Why do fire doors matter 

Fire doors play a vital role in a building’s passive fire protection system. Their primary function is to contain the spread of fire and smoke, thereby ensuring a safe escape route for occupants and mitigating damage to property.  

 

Fire doors are required by law in certain types of buildings, including commercial properties, public buildings, and multi-occupancy residential buildings. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 mandates that fire safety measures, including fire doors, be maintained in all non-domestic buildings.

 

Overall, fire doors play a vital role in fire safety, helping to protect lives, reduce property damage, and ensure compliance with legal and insurance requirements.

Fire Door Inspections

Our BM Trada Q-Mark trained certified inspectors possess a comprehensive understanding of the legal requirements and standards necessary to verify if fire doors have been installed correctly and are in good working order.

 

We use the latest specialist software to label, number, photograph, and identify the location of each fire door. This provides information that can assist building owners or operators with future inspections and maintenance.

Our expert inspectors check every component of the fire door assembly and identify any non-compliances. Upon completion of the inspection, we will issue a detailed report stating a pass or fail for each door. Where remediation is required, we will identify the issues and provide clear recommendations for the necessary works to achieve compliance.

In addition to one-off inspections, we also offer periodic inspection plans with intervals of three, six, or twelve months.
