Fire Door Maintenance & Survey/Inspection
Fire doors are a crucial factor to the success of passive fire protection systems. They act as a barrier between parts of a building, limiting the passage of fire and smoke and thus protecting lives and property. Failure to comply with Fire Safety Regulations can have grave consequences
Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO/FSO) makes it a legal requirement to ensure that fire resisting doors and escape doors are correctly installed and adequately maintained in order for them to be fit for purpose.
Just like any other passive fire protection system, it is essential for a fire door to perform as intended in the event of a fire. Any slight alteration to the door or its surroundings can affect the performance. As such, a fire door should be regularly checked to ensure it functions correctly and will perform to its designed standard in the event of a fire.
Periodic checks should be carried out at least once every six months although newly occupied buildings may require more frequent checks in the first year of use. Plus, Where the fire door is in high use, it should be checked more frequently than other doors in the building.
Regular inspections by a competent person will ensure the identification of any defects to the fire door that need to be addressed through maintenance.
In order for the door to be fit for purpose all of the elements of the door need to be assessed
- Correct Fire Rating for the location
- Correct fitting of closures and hinges
- Correct Gaps and Seals are present
- Frames are secure and undamaged
- Correct intumescent strips
- Correct type of glazing is used and fitted correctly
- Correct locks & latches and undamaged
- Correctly signed doors
