Fire Door Maintenance
The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 outlines that a suitable system of maintenance for fire doors must be in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. Essentially this means that regular fire door checks are required to provide fire safety and peace of mind within your building. If maintenance is not carried out regularly, it may result in prosecution if a fire occurs.
To avoid any situation like this, we strongly advise that regular maintenance of your fire doors are booked to ensure that all fire safety regulations remain in place. On completion and compliance of the maintenance, a BM Trada Q-Mark Certificate will be awarded to each door individually along with its Fire Rating details. Although there is no definitive legislation with regards to the frequency of fire door maintenance, we highly recommend bi-annual visits for fire door repairs in London and the surrounding home counties.
During any Fire Door Maintenance, we advise you to follow the recommended steps outlined by the fire door examiner who will be following the fire door inspection report to ensure that the fire doors are compliant for all fire safety needs.
However, the frequency of visits depends on the usage of the door-sets in question. If a particular door-set is subjected to high usage, it is strongly advised that multiple maintenance visits are carried out annually to ensure the door-sets condition remains in efficient order and in good repair. We can advise further on your on-going maintenance requirements once a survey has been carried out.
