Our team of qualified Fire Door Inspectors are fully qualified to carry out the inspections of your fire doors and prepare a detailed report that will be sent to you.

Here at Staines Safety Services, our team of fire protection experts have over 20 years of experience with the inspection and installation of products and systems.

Each Passive Fire Protection inspection is undertaken and measured against industry standards with knowledge of the Building Regulations, Manufacturer’s Installation Specifications and Fire Test Evidence. Buildings can be inspected against the required passive fire protection or individual product types can be inspected during installation.

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order and the Fire Safety Act 2021 puts the responsibility of Fire Safety on the owner of the building, or you can nominate a responsible person who must be competent. The ultimate method of providing assurances that the passive fire protection installations are done correctly is to have a third-party inspection.

The Fire Safety Act 2021

Sections 1 (premises to which the FSO applies) and 3 (risk-based guidance about the discharge of duties under the FSO) of the Fire Safety Act 2021 commenced on 16 May 2022.

The Fire Safety Act 2021 amends the FSO to clarify that, in buildings with two or more sets of domestic premises, the FSO applies to these two elements:

  • the structure and external walls of the building, including cladding, balconies and windows and
  • all doors between the domestic premises and the common parts (e.g. entrance doors to individual flats which open on to common parts)

The effect of the Act will be to require fire risk assessments of buildings with two or more sets of domestic premises to be updated to take account of structure, external walls and doors, as described above, if they have not already done so. Further detail is provided on this in the following sections.
