All our fire door inspection team have undergone study and training and are FDIS Fully Certified Inspectors.
Fire Doors are a critical component of a health and safety strategy for any purpose buildings to prevent, contain and minimise the damage to a property or its occupants in the event of a fire. Frequent testing of this important fire safety mechanism is integral to comply with current legislation and keeping the property and its people safe.
Fire Doors are an integral part of health and safety in the built environment. Either residential or commercial, legislation stipulates that the building owner is responsible for the health and safety of all those who enter a building. Furthermore, it is a requirement that fire doors are not only inspected and tested every 6 months but that there is an accredited document to prove that they are in correct working order and operate within the current safety guidelines. Insurance providers are more frequently requesting evidence of regular testing to ensure compliance before approving or declining a policy. Health and Safety inspectors, particularly Fire Officers, are conducting more frequent checks on all aspects of safety in a building with a noticeable increase in the observation of non-compliant fire doors in recent years.
