Fire doors provide life and property saving functions in the event of fire. It is important that they are regularly inspected and maintained to allow them to perform at their best on the one and only occasion when they are called upon to do so.
Inspecting fire doors is part of a fire warden’s role and involves much more than checking if they close if the fire alarm is activated. Mechanisms such as hinges, locks, latches, closers and floor springs are likely to wear over time. Inspection and maintenance are essential to ensure fire doors continue to comply with the British Standards they met when originally fitted.
To properly inspect and maintain the fire doors in your property you must be trained to identify potential reasons why a fire door may fail to close or not perform as expected in an emergency situation.
