The importance of a fire door inspection

Fire Door Inspection…

Being responsible for the safety of those using your building is a vitally important task for anyone, let’s face it, can anyone put a value on a life when it comes to making a building safe for those that use it in an event of a fire?

We believe that this responsibility should be shared with us and therefore we don’t leave things to chance when we get involved with your fire doors and we make sure that you are covered for aspects of fire door safety and this comes through in the thoroughness of our fire door inspections and the bespoke Fire Doors Rite software that we offer to help you ensure everything that can be done, has been done.

The first step in a fire door inspection or a fire door audit, is identification. Whether you are identifying a single fire door or multiple fire doors in a hospital, multi-storey office building or single dwelling, identification is the first step to an easy audit trail.

Our bespoke fire door inspection software allows you to take advantage of advanced electronic identification technologies such as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) or barcodes, ensuring that you have a constant record of all inspections and results

The 34 point check that we carry out is unique to the fire door inspection service that Fire Doors Rite provides and it means that when any maintenance is carried out it is done to the BM Trada Q-Mark.

Any fire door inspection carried out by individuals certified through the B M Trada Q Mark Scheme, will be done so based on the following assumptions;

  • The Doorset was originally manufactured and installed as a fire resisting doorset
  • The Doorset was originally installed correctly with appropriate fire stopping to rear of frame and structural opening
  • The appropriate door frame material was used for the Doorset and for the period of fire resistance
  • The structural opening is appropriate for the period of fire resistance
  • The intumescent materials and hardware were correct at the time of installation
  • Ongoing maintenance / repair work has been carried out correctly, without changing the specification of the doorset
    or affecting any of the above assumptions.

Some of the common faults found during a fire door inspection are; fire & smoke seals missing, damaged or incorrectly installed, incorrect signage, incorrect gaps between doors & frames or had unsuitable hinges installed. So don’t let these most common fire door faults catch you out.
