Fire Doors and Compartmentation
Fire doors are an integral part of any passive fire protection and compartmentation strategy. As well as providing a crucial escape route, they help to limit the passage of fire and smoke in a building. However, fire doors are frequently misused, particularly to enter and exit a building in non-emergency situations. This reinforces the need for regular inspection and maintenance.

Compliance with Fire Door Regulations
Every component of a fire door is subject to regulation under Fire Safety: Approved Document B and following incorporations. One of the most important requirements in the UK, for instance, is that fire doors have a resistance time of 30 minutes or higher.

Fire Door Inspection and Remediation
Remedial works are an effective way to guarantee compliance whilst reducing costs associated with replacement. Our team will inspect your fire doors for signs of damage, including holes, misalignment or material degradation and also check that the ironmongery fitted to the door is fully compliant to the correct standards.
We will then compile an inspection report including costs before carrying out all the necessary repairs to achieve fire door compliance. We aim to provide the best service and value for our clients, therefore fire door remediation will always be our first port of call. We will only recommend a fire door be replaced when absolutely necessary.
Intumescent Fireproofing Specialists
Intumescent strip fitting is key to curtailing the spread of smoke and fire. This involves placing a seal around a fire door that expands when exposed to heat. When combined with cold smoke seals, intumescent strips are a vital means of defence, usually offering between 30 and 60 minutes of fire resistance.
