Fire Door Inspections ensure that your fire doors are compliant and working right

At Staines Safety Services, we offer a professional and expert fire door inspection service. Our Fire Door Inspectors are fully qualified to carry out the inspections of your fire doors and prepare a detailed report on the fire doors on your premises.

In 2022, 75% of fire doors failed their inspections. A failed inspection can happen for a number of reasons such as incorrect installation or general maintenance issues. We can ensure that your door is properly installed, checking for any excess gaps or sealing issues. We offer reliable services and our main aim is to provide each customer with a peace of mind regarding their fire safety standards.

The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order puts the responsibility of Fire Safety on the owner of the building, or to nominate a responsible person who must be competent. The ultimate method of providing assurances that the passive fire protection installations within a building are installed correctly, is to have a third-party inspection on these provisions by a competent person.

Fire Door Legislation In The UK

Legislation in England and Wales states that if you’re an employer, owner, landlord or occupier of business or non-domestic premises, and you are made the ‘responsible person’ for the fire safety in a building – you are therefore responsible for taking the necessary steps to protect occupants in your premises from the risk of fire.

It is your duty of care to ensure that all your passive and active fire protection is under a sustained, suitable and sufficient programme of inspection and maintenance.

Support is Available

The fire safety process always starts with a fire risk assessment.

If you want to learn more about fire doors, you can contact us for advice. If you’re not sure if your risk assessment has been carried out properly, your local fire and rescue authority might be able to advise you, although they can’t carry out risk assessments for you.

Therefore, it is important to get a fire door survey carried out in your premises to ensure all components of your fire doors are compliant with fire safety legislations.
