The provision for suitable and correctly installed fire doors combined with a regular regime of inspection and maintenance are imperative to ensuring fire protection for premises and the safety of the relevant persons who use buildings affected by the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (FSO) 2005.
Replacing over 70 sections of fire safety law in 2006 the FSO applies to all non-domestic premises throughout England & Wales which means that whether you are an employer with business premises, self- employed with premises, providing accommodation for paying guests a charity or voluntary organisation the order applies.
As a vital component in the overall fire strategy for your building, regular use of door constructions often highlights signs of wear and tear or abuse. Physical damage, movement, obstructions, missing or incorrect specification components can all fundamentally affect the ability of the door to deliver the required level of fire and smoke resistance.
Compliant installation along with recognition of significant signs of damage, poor quality or incorrect repairs can be complex and without action there is a possibility that a fire door may fail at a critical moment.
R. Lewis & Co (UK) Ltd work with clients on a range of fire integrity and insulation strategy requirements offering versatile efficient specification solutions to ensure fire door protection is provided and maintained at site.
During our work and on completion of installations we are able to produce records of who installed, which area the work was carried out in, what door specification was used to protect the area and when the work was done. Each installation area can be physically identified through this electronic data recording process with detailed drawings and photographic support available. You may also want to consider utilising our company’s contact information label that can be fitted to each door or area on site.
This scheme allows you to deal with future work effecting installations or maintenance of existing doors, using the contact details provided on the company label.
If you need any assistance or would like to find out more about this service or any additional support available through the company after sales to include training schemes, fire engineering, consultancy, site installations, project risk review and assessment services then please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
