Fire Door Inspection & Report
Why Service a Fire Door
Quite often the purpose of a door with fire and smoke seals is misunderstood as they are put in the same bracket as standard joinery doors. This is far from the truth. In most cases, a fire door forms the last line of defence against the loss of life in the event of a fire. The location of fire doors would have been carefully positioned as highlighted in a fire risk assessment to ensure protected means of escape are provided and maintained.
Fire Door Inspection
Our certified Fire Door Inspectors are fully accredited by the FDIS to undertake all types of fire door bi-annual inspections and certifications. Our inspectors have the ability to make minor adjustments to fire doors while they are being inspected, which can be the difference between a fire door passing or failing. This can eliminate the need for another trade being employed to undertake rectification works.
On completion of a fire door inspection, a detailed report outlining the door’s condition will be issued highlighting if any remedial works need to be undertaken. If there are any non-compliant doors, you will also be provided with detailed quotes to rectify any critical defects.
Fire Door Certification
Once a fire door has been installed or after one has been replaced, the door should have been assigned a unique tag number and a certificate. This certificate outlines the doors features including location, size, fire rating, type of door, hardware and date installed. It is important to keep this certificate in an easily accessible location and it should form part of the buildings log books.
Fire Door Repair & Replacement
Repairing or replacing non-compliant fire doors must be carried out by tradesmen who are competent to do so. We work closely with building and facility managers to ensure we achieve the best solution for your building and can undertake some works out of hours to reduce possible loss of revenue.

Our Third Party Accreditation

Fire doors play a vital role as part of a building’s passive fire protection system. They help subdivide a building into compartments, slowing down the spread of fire and smoke and allowing occupants to either escape the building by keeping escape routes clear of smoke and fire, or wait for rescue within a protected area.
Manufacturers often make claims that their products are tested and achieve a certain performance level. But did the products pass that test? And if so, then how do they prove it?
In the UK, all fire door designs should be tested to BS 476 Part 22 or the European equivalent BS EN 1634 Part 1, to represent how they will function in a fire, and that the manufacturer can demonstrate that there is evidence supporting the performance of the door.
It is also important for a manufacturer to demonstrate that the products they make are consistently ‘fit for purpose’ and that passing the fire test wasn’t a one-off event.
Ways of demonstrating fire door performance
Third-party certification tests and verifies a fire door’s design, performance, manufacturing process and quality assurance from manufacture to installation. The company is independently audited to ensure that all the management and manufacturing processes and systems are in place to ensure consistency with the product that was tested. The product too, is subjected to regular scrutiny, with frequent testing taking place on standard products to ensure that the test wasn’t just a once-only event.
