FDIS Inspector

A fire door inspection is a look at the fire doors in the building to see if they are functional and in compliance with fire safety standards. A building’s passive fire protection system is crucial in reducing the rate at which smoke and fire spread throughout the structure in the event of a fire.

Fire doors are an essential component of a building’s fire protection because they keep the structure separate. Any commercial building must be properly maintained and inspected on a regular basis to reduce the risk of loss of life and property. All of the door set’s components will be examined during the inspection, which can significantly diminish the system’s effectiveness and its ability to prevent fire spread if they are not maintained.

    A fire door inspection survey will determine whether your building’s fire doors comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which mandates that fire¬¬ resistant doors be installed correctly and maintained appropriately to remain functional. It says that the person in charge of non-domestic buildings has to make sure that fire doors and frames are installed correctly to stop fires from spreading. The BWF-CERTFIRE Best Practice Guide recommends that building owners or other responsible individuals inspect their fire doors once every six months.

    This includes checking the vision panels, the glazing, the cold smoke seals, the intumescent seals, the fire resistance of the door set (its thickness and the gaps between the leaf and the door frame), the condition, fit, and operation of the hinges and hardware, and looking for relevant markings, such as those from the British Woodworking Federation, to determine the door set’s fire rating.
