Fire Door Inspection & Certification

About Us

Pro-Servicing provides an independent, third-party fire door inspection service. Our Certified Fire Door Inspectors are fully qualified under the Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS). Our inspectors provide the most comprehensive and highest standard of inspection within the UK.

Third-party Certification

Fire doors are potential lifesaving products. With all lifesaving products, third party certification, involving independent inspection and certification, should be the minimum standard demanded for every building. Third party certification means that you can be confident that the fire doors supplied and installed are fit for purpose and will protect lives in an event of a fire.

What is a fire door?

Fire doors are a purpose-built safety device engineered to withstand fire for a defined period and keep it contained in one area. Fire doors provide a means of escape too. They are crucial for protecting property and life in the event of a fire and can be the difference between life and death. It is vital that fire doors are maintained and managed properly to permit them to perform at their best on the one and only occasion when they are called upon to do so.

Fire Door Inspection and Certification

  • An identification label is attached to each fire door providing a unique numbering system for data referencing and demonstrating to the user of the building that the doors have been surveyed professionally

Why Inspect a Fire Door

Quite often the purpose of a door with fire and smoke seals is misunderstood as they are put in the same bracket as standard joinery doors. This is far from the truth. In most cases, a fire door forms the last line of defence against the loss of life in the event of a fire. The location of fire doors would have been carefully positioned as highlighted in a fire risk assessment to ensure protected means of escape are provided and maintained.

Fire Door Inspection

Our certified Fire Door Inspectors are fully accredited by the FDIS to undertake all types of fire door bi-annual inspections and certifications. Our inspectors have the ability to make minor adjustments to fire doors while they are being inspected, which can be the difference between a fire door passing or failing. This can eliminate the need for another trade being employed to undertake rectification works.
On completion of a fire door inspection, a detailed report outlining the door’s condition will be issued highlighting if any remedial works need to be undertaken. If there are any non-compliant doors, you will also be provided with detailed quotes to rectify any critical defects.

Fire Door Certification

Once a fire door has been installed or after one has been replaced, the door should have been assigned a unique tag number and a certificate. This certificate outlines the doors features including location, size, fire rating, type of door, hardware and date installed. It is important to keep this certificate in an easily accessible location and it should form part of the buildings log books.

Peace of Mind

Having your doors inspected by our certificated professionals not only gives you peace of mind, it also reassures the building’s occupiers that you take fire safety seriously. From hotels, office buildings, nursing homes and schools to student accommodation or local authority housing, every occupier has the right to feel that if a fire does break out, they will be safe, and that the fire doors in the building will perform as they were intended.
Our certified fire door inspectors will work with you to ensure without a doubt, that your fire doors are complaint.

Legal Obligations

REGULATORY REFORM (FIRE SAFETY) ORDER 2005 

WHAT IS THE FIRE SAFETY ORDER (REGULATORY REFORM (FIRE SAFETY) ORDER 2005?

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the biggest single reform of fire safety laws in over 30 years.  It simplifies the law for businesses and places a greater focus on prevention.

The law, which came into force on 1st October 2006, consolidates existing fire safety laws, which were scattered across more than 70 pieces of legislation. It also places the responsibility for fire safety on the employer or ‘responsible person’ for that building or premises. Under the Fire Safety legislation the ‘responsible person’ for each premises must carry out an assessment of the risks (risk assessment) of fire and take steps to reduce or remove the risk.

Who does it apply to? 

The Order requires that a responsible person (the person having control of the building, or a degree of control) takes reasonable steps to reduce the risk from fire and makes sure people can safely escape if there is a fire. This includes all people that might visit the premises. For more information, see Responsible person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

Do the regulations apply to my premises?

From the 1st October 2006 The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 came into force.  This applies to nearly every type of building and structure.

For example, it applies to:

  • Offices and shops
  • Care providers (including care homes and hospitals)
  • Community halls, places of worship and other community premises
  • The shared areas of properties several households live in (housing laws may also apply)
  • Pubs, clubs and restaurants
  • Schools and sports centres
  • Tents and marquees
  • Hotels and hostels
  • Factories and warehouses

It does not apply to:

  • People’s private homes

Regulation 38 and fire safety engineering

Regulation 38 is a requirement under the Building Regulations for England and Wales to provide fire safety information to the ’responsible person’ at the completion of a project, or when the building or extension is first occupied. It links the Building Regulations to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (known as the RRO or FSO) which places the responsibility of fire safety onto the ‘responsible person’. The law now shifts responsibility for fire safety from the fire authorities to whoever has day-to-day control of premises that come under the RRO. Each business must appoint a responsible person, whether it is the owner, facilities manager or an expert consultant, to manage the fire risk to the building (e.g. of a hospital / school / flats), and to people using the building, or its immediate surroundings.

Fire safety information

38.— (1) This regulation applies where building work—

(a)consists of or includes the erection or extension of a relevant building; or

(b)is carried out in connection with a relevant change of use of a building,

and Part B of Schedule 1 imposes a requirement in relation to the work.

(2) The person carrying out the work shall give fire safety information to the responsible person not later than the date of completion of the work, or the date of occupation of the building or extension, whichever is the earlier.

(3) In this regulation—

(a)“fire safety information” means information relating to the design and construction of the building or extension, and the services, fittings and equipment provided in or in connection with the building or extension which will assist the responsible person to operate and maintain the building or extension with reasonable safety;

(b)a “relevant building” is a building to which the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies, or will apply after the completion of building work;

(c)a “relevant change of use” is a material change of use where, after the change of use takes place, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 will apply, or continue to apply, to the building; and

(d)“responsible person” has the meaning given by article 3 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
