Fire doors are integral components of a passive fire protection plan as they keep fire or smoke contained to one room or compartment for a certain period of time. While confining the danger to one area, fire doors enable escape routes to remain clear, allowing for a safe evacuation of a building to take place.
Fire doors are a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings, such as offices and commercial premises. Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that it is recommended to set up a regular planned preventative maintenance programme for completed works. This work would start with a fire door survey to ensure that:
- The fire doors have been installed correctly
- The glazing used is fire resistant
- Each component is working properly
Here at Surefire Passive our qualified inspectors will be able to carry out a thorough fire door survey. They will establish whether each fire door is safe, compliant with the latest regulations and effective at containing smoke and fire long enough to evacuate a building safely.
Fire doors are one of the most important elements of a building’s passive fire protection plan as they help reduce the spread of flame and smoke throughout a building. This is why we aim to ensure that your legal obligations are satisfied and future proofed with a comprehensive fire door survey.
We are always here to help with your passive fire protection enquiries and if you require a fire door survey please get in touch today.
