Fire Door Inspections

Fire Door Inspections

Why do I need fire door inspections? Fire doors are an essential way to prevent a fire from spreading, this means that the building owner/operator as outlined in The Fire Safety Regulations 2022 must ensure that all fire doors, and escape doors are installed correctly, as well as being suitable.  If the correct fire doors are fitted correctly, it will increase the amount of time it will take for a fire to spread.

What is a Fire Door?

A fire door is not just a conventional door, it is a complete door assembly that consists of a door frame, any glazing, fire and smoke seals, and all ironmongery on the door including hinges, door closures, latches, etc.

The purpose of a fire door is the following:

  • Keep the fire in a certain area and help starve the fire of oxygen.
  • Ensure persons are protected in other areas of the burning building.
  • Increase the amount of time it takes for the fire to spread.

In short, a fire door is one of the most important aspects of fire safety. So to ensure that your fire doors are fit for purpose you need to ensure that they are inspected as outlined in The Fire Safety Regulations 2022 which came into force on 23rd January 2023.
