The importance of Fire Door Surveys

The importance of fire door surveys cannot be underestimated. Fire doors are key components of a passive fire protection strategy, and therefore it is vital they are always working as they should. This means that when a fire breaks out, it will be able to be confined to one area of building.

By compartmentalising a building through the use of fire doors, the evacuation of a building can be carried out with greater ease, without the danger of a fire spreading rapidly throughout a property. It is recommended by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 that regular inspection of fire doors is carried out. 

Fire door inspections will help to establish whether the doors are fit for purpose. Each fire door will be inspected to ascertain that each component is working correctly, and the glazing is fire resistant.

The components that will be checked include the seals, handles, hinges, locks and latches and a fire door survey should be carried out every six months to ensure that a building is compliant with the latest fire safety regulations. Here at Surefire Passive our qualified engineers will be able to carry out the required fire door surveys for you to provide full peace of mind.

They will carry out a thorough examination of every fire door in your property, establish whether it is safe, and carry out any required work. A passive fire protection plan would not be complete without fire doors, so please contact us now if you are worried about how safe yours are.
