Fire Door Survey Report


Fire Door Survey Report London:

A recent survey of fire door inspections revealed that 61% of the doors inspected had issues with fire & smoke seals,
25% had problems with hinges and 1 in 6 had problems with the door leaf.

Therefore, making sure your fire doors and all the components that make up your fire door are 100% compliant is absolutely crucial to the performance of ANY fire door in the event of a fire.

Fire Door: Inspection Guide

It is required that suitably fire rated fire doors are suitably fitted in the required locations to meet the required fire safety building regulations.

These locations and fire ratings are determined by approved building regulations, type of premises and a suitable & sufficient fire risk assessment.

Fire Door: Rating Guide

1. FD30 = 30 minute 'fire rated'
2. FD60 = 60 minute 'fire rated'
3. FD30(s) = c/w 'smoke seals'
4. FD60(s) = c/w 'smoke seals'

  • Smoke seals fire rating must equal the fire door fire rating to which it is being installed.

  • Intumescent strips fire rating must equal the fire door fire rating to which it is being installed.

That is to say:

  • 30 minute seals for FD30 only
  • 60 minute seals for FD60 only

Any deviation will invalidate your fire door ratings.
