Fire Door Inspections Explained
Your Responsibility & The Law
It is important to have your fire doors inspected in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which applies to all non-domestic buildings, including common areas of apartment buildings. This order places responsibility for fire safety on the person in day-to-day control of the premises, who must appoint a responsible person to manage fire risk. The responsible person must ensure that all fire safety provisions are met, including the inspection and maintenance of fire door safety systems. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in criminal charges, fines, restrictions on operations, closure of the building, or even imprisonment.
What Does A Fire Door Inspection Include?
By conducting a Fire Door Inspection, you can quickly determine if your premises are in compliance with current fire safety regulations. Our inspector will visit your property and evaluate its condition, based on a recent risk assessment or building survey. They will provide recommendations to ensure that your premises meet the necessary standards.
The inspection report will detail the status of your fire doors, taking into account gaps, glazing, and door hardware. It will also suggest whether upgrading existing doors is preferable to full replacement.
In addition, the report will include a list of recommendations, including essential works that are required to meet the current guidelines, as well as non-critical but advisable works.
