Fire Door Audit – Fire Risk Assessment
What are Fire Doors?
Fire doors built into the fabric of a building form an important part of the passive fire protection, they are tasked with keeping any fire in the compartment in which it starts. The period of fire resistance can range from 30-120 minutes, depending on the requirement of the building. Fire doors are typically fitted with appropriate fire rated components, the most common elements include intumescent strips, cold smoke seals, a self-closing device, fire rated hinges and fire rated glazing.
Why are Fire Doors needed?
Fire Doors are a big part of a building’s passive fire protection system and strategy, providing key protection to areas of escape and safety. If you are the responsible person for a building or premises, it is essential that your Fire Doors are regularly checked for any damage and faults and are compliant with current regulations.
