FIRE DOOR INSPECTIONS
Fire doors are engineered products that provide life and property saving functions in the event of fire.

Depending on the type of building you are responsible for it will influence the frequency of fire door inspections required. Some buildings, such as schools and hospitals, are subject to heavy traffic and the doors have a hard time often being subject to repeated misuse.

Best practice is to ensure your current fire risk assessment is updated periodically to cover on-going changes in the building structure, relevant persons and other factors.

You have a legal responsibility to make sure your business and employees are protected from the dangers of fire.
