Fire door safety inspections

Fire doors are designed to slow the spread of fire and smoke from one room to the next for between 30 and 60 minutes. This protects lives.

Our joinery specialists carry out inspections to flat doors and communal fire doors. 

If you live in a flat, please always think about the impact a fire could have on others living in the same building.

You should not make adjustments or remove the door closer. This will affect the integrity of the door if there is a fire. Please leave those adjustments to us, and we’ll make sure they meet the fire safety regulations.

Fire door safety tips

  • Never leave a fire door open. A fire door will not stop the spread of fire if it’s left open and it can cause a huge risk to themselves and others. 
  • Never tamper with a fire door. If you make changes to a fire door, you are putting everyone at risk. Adapting a fire door makes them dangerous.
  • If you see a fault, please report it. Fire doors should close fully at all times. If something is preventing the door closing, please report it immediately to our building safety team.
