Fire door inspections consist of extensive checks of each individual fire door component. CDG Fire & Security visual fire door inspections begin by focusing on the door’s structural integrity, assessing the door leaf, door frame, self-closer, door hinges, door selector, locks and handles, panic hardware, apertures and glazing. CDG conducts fire door inspections as per IS 3614-1

The visual inspection also inspects passive protection features surrounding the door such as intumescent door strips and cold smoke seals. The gaps between the door and frame and the threshold gaps are measured. In addition, fire safety signage is checked for clarity and compliance, in line with current regulations. Ensuring fire doors are up to standard is a valuable task that should not be underestimated. In order to comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, fire door installation and maintenance is a key requirement for every business to which the Order applies.

To ensure fire doors will perform as intended in the event of a fire, regular inspections should be undertaken. Six-monthly inspections are recommended, consisting of extensive checks of each individual component. Inspections must be completed by a certified fire safety technician, who is able to stringently assess each of the key components for damage, faults, or wear.

If there are alterations to the fire door or its surroundings, including the frame, hinges, locks, latches or door closers, this could alter the door’s performance. If you identify any problems with your fire doors, act immediately. Do not postpone fixing issues, as this could have untold consequences should a fire occur. It’s good practice to keep a maintenance log of all checks carried out on fire doors, by yourself and by competent technicians. A sufficiently documented system of regular maintenance to all elements of a fire doors is fundamental to the long-term fire safety of a building.

These records should be kept up-to-date and be readily available if required. A fire door inspection, or fire door survey as they’re often called, involves us taking a look at existing fire-rated door sets to determine whether they’re compliant and can be certified as such. A compliant fire door set will adhere to many strict ‘rules’ or ‘laws’, which includes having the correct gaps around the door itself, ensuring all hardware is compliant (i.e. hinges, letter boxes, glazing etc), checking the material it’s constructed from, even the seals the door set encompasses and the fire stopping materials behind the architrave; any one of these aspects being even slightly off could result in a non-compliant door.

Fire Door Inspection Report

When fire door inspections are finished, managers must closely examine the report documents. The report should include a separate page for each fire door. In addition to the items inspected and tested, each page should include a form of identification for the door, such as an assigned number or location, the type of door installed, its fire rating, the date the inspection was conducted, and the name and signature of the person conducting the inspection. An additional comments section should be included to allow inspectors to identify unusual circumstances or conditions.

In addition to each door inspection sheet, it might be necessary to include photographs of conditions of a particular door. Those photographs should be clearly labelled to identify the door, location of the defect on the door or frame, and the condition.
