The top 3 reasons being:


•    Excessive gaps
•    Smoke seal issues
•    And poorly adjusted self-closing devices.


These figures are proof that fire doors, one of the most important passive fire protection elements of a building are often overlooked or misunderstood.


Our fire door inspectors are all certified under the Fire Door Inspectors scheme and have the post nominals Cert FDI so you can have confidence that they are experts in their field. We will inspect all doors to ensure that they are compliant and fit for purpose meaning they will protect occupants and assets against smoke and heat should a fire occur.

Upon completion, our assessor will provide you with a full detailed inventory and inspection report of all your fire doors and final exit doors. Where possible, each fault is identified along with a possible solution.

 

An identification label is attached to each fire door providing a unique numbering system for data referencing and demonstrating to the users of the building that the doors have been surveyed professionally. On completion an LPCB inspection certificate is provided for identification purposes in compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
