Fire Door Inspection
Have you previously had a fire risk assessment carried out which identified that your doors were unfit for purpose? And that they required remedial works? Have you then had to source a further estimate to maintain and carry out the remedial works for these doors?
All of a sudden you are faced with 2 points of contact from both an assessor and fire door contractor. These contacts may not know each other, and you may then need information from both parties. The fire risk assessor would have carried out the survey and the contractor priced for the remedial works. This is a headache.
Fire Door Contractors
Unlike many of our competitors, at Fire Door Experts we provide a full circle offering with regards to fire door inspections as a fully certified fire door contractor. Our fire door technicians will provide a thorough inspection of all the fire doors in the building. This ensures they are safe and eﬀectively protecting all the occupants against smoke in the event of a fire. You will be advised accordingly if a potential hazard is detected via a detailed survey report compiled by our team.
First and foremost, we carry out a detailed assessment specifically on the doors only. This is rather than a general fire risk assessment (FRA). We often find when presented with an independent FRA, the doors are ‘sort of’ surveyed. Very often, items of a doors function with regards to its fire integrity are missed off the surveys. This often relates to its ability to stop the passing of cold smoke, a vital factor in fire doors!
This means that when we come to work on the doors based on these assessments, we have to carry out further works for these ‘missed’ items, which means the clients costs invariably increase!
When Fire Door Experts carry out the door survey, we survey the doors and then submit a detailed report. We also provide a cost estimate to make the doors fit for purpose, or replace the doors if more economically viable.
When FDE are awarded the contract to maintain the doors in question, not only do we deduct the cost of the survey fee from the final invoice, but most crucially we carry out any required works in-house. It really is a full circle offering and a win-win solution for our clients as we offer a single point of contact from start to finish through advice and guidelines of both of FDIS and BRE fire door inspection accreditations.
Fire Door Experts will measure your fire doors against BM Trada’s Accepted Repair Techniques to assess whether they can be maintained back to their original intended fire rating, or whether another course of action is required. Please see an overview of what these ART’s cover below.
