Fire Door Maintenance
According to BS 8214:2008, (Code of practice for Fire Door assemblies), Fire Doors need to provide a similar level of fire resistance as the fixed elements of a building (i.e. walls and floors) and are evaluated by the same stringent procedures and criteria.
However, since Fire Doors are often opened and closed many times a day, their deterioration will be much faster, usually taking two main forms:
- damage to the leaf or the components making up the assembly
- wear in the building hardware, or a reduction in the effectiveness of fixings, causing the door to fail to self-close, thereby resulting in a breach of the fire barrier.
It is therefore very important to have periodic inspections and carry out any maintenance or repair any damage as
promptly as possible.
Fire Door Inspection
We can assist in regular inspection and maintenance of Fire Doors is essential to both comply with the Building Regulations and maintain a safe environment for all building occupants.
It is important to remember that all actions, defects and damage should be noted down against the relevant door identification number along with the suggested remedy and when it is/will be completed.
At the back of the guide we have included a Fire Door inspection checklist and a couple of useful tables to help you keep track of your checks, maintenance and remedies.
