How often should fire doors be inspected?

Periodic inspections should be performed at least once every six months, while in the first year of operation, newly inhabited buildings can need more regular inspections. A fire door needs to be routinely inspected to make sure it works properly and will act as intended in the case of a fire. 

All passive fire protection system elements need to work as designed in the event of an unexpected fire.

Fire doors are no exception and are one of the most important parts of a passive fire protection system, as well as being one of the most temperamental elements.

Any alterations made to a fire door, the door frame, or any part of its surroundings that might affect how the door closes can have a major knock-on effect and make a big difference to its performance in the event of a fire.

This means that it is important to perform regular fire door inspections to ensure that the door works properly and will do what it is supposed to do in the event that a fire breaks out.

If the fire door in question is used particularly often, for example, if it is in a major thoroughfare rather than a rarely used doorway, then it may require further frequent inspections.

The most frequently used doors in the building are likely to need fire door inspections once every month, or potentially even more often in multiple occupancy buildings that have high traffic in the hallways.

For most fire safety regulations purposes, an inspection once every six months should be enough for a standard fire risk assessment from the FDIS.

Are Fire Doors a Legal Requirement?

Fire doors are the first line of defence in the event of a fire, and therefore are a vital part of fire safety. A properly certificated fire door is one of the most important parts of fire safety defence and should not be underestimated.

There are a number of specific situations where fire doors are part of United Kingdom legal safety requirements and must be installed, whether you would like to have one or not.

In a domestic home property, fire doors are a legal safety requirement in any 2-storey building that features an internal door leading between an integrated garage and the main house.

They are also a legal requirement for any new build or renovated home property with 3 or more storeys. In this case, every room leading off the main stairwell must be fitted with a fully certified fire door, available from a site such as the British woodworking federation site.

That is the legal requirement, and any less than that will lead to a fine from the fire door inspector and a negative report. That does not mean you can’t do anything in addition to this, though.

Having additional fire doors with certification over the number strictly required is never a problem, and many people report that they feel much safer and more comfortable when they have additional fire doors to protect their family and home.

Just like having more smoke detectors than the smoke detector minimum, more fire doors can only increase the security of your home and reduce the fire risk and risk of damage from smoke and flame.

Who Inspects Your Fire Doors

 Any fire service products must be regularly inspected for compliance by someone with appropriate knowledge. In order to ensure that your fire alarm and fire doors are functioning properly to save the lives of the occupants and work according to their purpose.

That could be any person with appropriate training to perform this service, from maintenance professionals to one of the occupants of the home or employees of the business.

As long as you have appropriate information and training in fire service compliance, you can perform an inspection to ensure that the fire protection services are all in working condition.

In most cases, inspections of the premises will be carried out by a designated maintenance person, trained in the factors, components and information needed to keep both the frame and the door working appropriately in compliance with the official advice and regulations.

How Do We Inspect a Fire Door?

Fire door inspection services are generally pretty straightforward. The fire door inspectors will check that all of the components are in working condition, such as the overhead closers and any locks and latches.

They will also perform routine maintenance checks on any seals and hinges involved in your fire door service for homes or businesses. Inspectors will also check smoke seals and report on any gaps, as well as the gap around the door frame and threshold.

The final report will detail any gaps or smoke weaknesses found by the inspectors as part of the service and will include advice on services you could use to improve your fire door security for your building in order to perform better in your next inspection.

FAQ’s

How Important Are Fire Doors?

Fire doors are a very important thing to have in your workplace and even in your home to protect everyone from any possible fire outbreaks. 

They provide that extra layer of protection in the event of a fire and will give you enough time to exit the building. 

Should Fire Doors Always Stay Closed?

Yes, fire doors should always stay closed and they should never be obstructed if you have a safety inspection and a fire door is seen propped open or there is stuff in font/behind it, it can be seen as putting your employees or the people in the building’s life at risk.¬†

So it is the smartest option to keep fire doors closed at all times in the likely event of a fire!

What Is The Minimum Time For Which A Closed Fire Door Will Protect You_

30-60 minutes is the maximum amount of time a standard fire door will protect you from the fire breaking through. 

Without a fire door though it would be a matter of minutes so they give you a substantial amount of time to get out safely.

Summary 

It is very important to perform a regular fire door inspection report on all fire doors in your building, as any damage to the safety doors or any movement on the hinges since your last report can lead to much-reduced fire protection across your building.

A fire door inspection report will let you know when your safety door is not working as required, letting you know that you need to fix it if you want to stay protected.
