Fire door inspection

Are you wondering “I have installed a Fire Safety Door & it has never been used, then why do I need to get it inspected?” Well, a fire door is more than just the leaf; it’s an entire assembly. It includes the door’s frame, any glazing, intumescent fire and smoke seals, and all door hardware, including letter plates, spy holes, hinges, door closers, latches, and locks.

    Let’s talk FIRE DOORS

    A crucial component of your fire safety plan are fire doors. When used correctly, they prevent fires from spreading throughout a building, allowing people to flee and the Brigade time to arrive and possibly save your property. A fire door should be able to stop a fire for at least 30 minutes if it is made correctly by a BWF-certified manufacturer using compatible parts and is certified by an accredited third party.
    While fire detection and sprinklers are also important considerations, installing the appropriate fire doors is an important responsibility.
    A door’s hinges, seals, handles, glazing, and other parts are just as important as the door itself. This is due to the fact that doors can warp, move, and allow smoke and fire to enter through the opening during a fire. Additionally, the seals and gaps between the door frame and the wall are crucial. As quickly, they also stop fire and smoke from spreading.

    Why can we not do without fire doors?

    • They are made to withstand fire for up to 30 minutes specifically.
    • They are required by law in apartments that open onto shared communal areas with other tenants. This is done to safeguard crucial escape routes in the event of a fire.
    • In the event of a fire, they are designed to automatically close behind you, preventing the spread of the flames and toxic smoke into the block’s escape routes, corridors, and other apartments.

    And, if you are somebody who is in charge of the building’s fire safety, you need to make sure that these life-saving devices are installed, checked, and maintained so they work as intended.

    The surveyors will check whether each door:

    • Has the appropriate fire rating for its location
    • Is properly fitted, without the kind of gaps that can damage the building’s compartmentation
    • Is not damaged in a way that would hinder its performance in the event of a fire
    • Has the appropriate hardware and closers, and that they work properly
    • Has the appropriate intumescent strips
    • Is properly identified on both the door signage and in the building’s asset register
    • Whenever appropriate, has the correct type of glazing, and that it is fitted
