Under UK statutory law, fire doors must be maintained as stated in The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 You are here: UK Statutory Instruments 2005 No. 1541 PART 2 Article 17 “subject to a suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair”. The responsibility for ensuring that maintenance is carried out, lies with the building owner or responsible person.
Why do Fire Doors Fail Inspections?
Common fire door inspection failures, such as gaps over 3mm between the door and the frame mean that smoke ingress could happen in the event of a fire. A minor adjustment to the door could potentially fix this issue thus achieving statutory compliance, cost savings and peace of mind.
Other failures are damaged or missing intumescent seals on internal doors, non-fire rated fittings and such as closers and letter boxes and non fire rated glass installed. These failure items decrease the integrity of the doors and are often the point of failure in a fire.
