Before any inspections take place, an investigation into the types of doors that should be installed and what ratings they are required to have should be carried out. This information (usually found on site plans and fire strategy documentation) is used as a baseline.
A compliant fire door inspection should cross-reference expectations against actual findings at the property.
A detailed fire door inspection of each fire door will check all aspects of the door's features and hardware, ensure they meet the building's fire strategy and inspect for wear and tear that may reduce the fire door's efficiency if the worst happens.
All aspects of the inspection should be recorded and evidenced to protect the responsible person in the case of a fire.
Regular repairs should be carried out to industry guidelines (ideally to a 3rd party certificated standard such as BM Trada Qmark) ensuring that any repairs carried out are compliant and reinstating the fire door's resistance.
Ongoing fire door inspections should be at a suitable interval to pick up damage before it becomes a major problem, as a guideline 6 monthly for standard usage is a good starting point.
