Fire doors can save lives and save your property! Priors Group carry out fire door inspections and provide you with a report to determine what is required for your doors to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and also fulfill insurance requirements.

The BS 9999 Handbook (Effective Fire Safety in the Design, Management and Use of Buildings) recommends six monthly inspections and includes guidance on some of the main inspection criteria. You are responsible for ensuring an adequate inspection and maintenance routine is in place.

During a fire door inspection our technicians inspect each component of the fire door assembly including:

  • Door leaf
  • Door frame
  • Door closer (self-closing devices)
  • Hinges
  • Intumescent door strip and cold smoke seals
  • Glazing (vision panels)
  • Locks and levers/handles
  • Fire safety signage
  • Hold open devices
  • Gaps around the doors and threshold gaps
  • Panic hardware devices for external final fire exit doors
