Fire Door Inspections
The actual performance of an installed fire door can vary significantly due to a wide variety of factors, including the door, frame, hardware, intumescent strips and smoke seals (where necessary). In analyses of the fire risk assessments FRMA conducted in 2020, 43% identified fire doors with vital components missing (like essential intumescent seals), severely reducing or even irradicating their fire stopping capabilities; highlighting the importance of regular fire door maintenance.
Inspections of existing fire doors are a job for a specialist in the field. At FRMA our associates are experts in fire door testing, installation and inspection. All of our fire door inspectors have been awarded the Fire Door Inspection Scheme diploma (DipFD). Furthermore, FRMA are accredited under the LPCB to inspect, repair and maintain fire and security doors, doorsets, shutters and active smoke/fire barriers.
