The Importance of Fire Door Maintenance North Wales

Each fire door installed to your property should be checked at least every six months to ensure that it will function correctly in the event of a fire.

If your fire door is not maintained in the correct manner you can be prosecuted under the Regulatory Reform Order due to the risks involved.

It is important that you treat your fire door as you would with a fire extinguisher or smoke alarm.

Fire Door Repairs in North Wales

Keeping your fire doors in working condition.

Regular fire door maintenance will not only ensure you are upholding your obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 but could also help to save lives.

According to BS 8214:2016 ‘Timber-based fire door assemblies – Code of practice’, Fire Doors need to provide a similar level of fire resistance as building elements such as walls or floors, and are evaluated under the same stringent tests and procedures.

Because of their positioning in corridors and areas that see lots of footfall, doors are prone to damage and higher levels of wear and tear resulting from constant use. Deterioration can impact in two main ways:

1. damage to the door leaf or to components making up the door assembly

2. wear in door hardware or reduced performance of fixings, preventing the door from self-closing, thereby breaching the protective fire barrier.
