Fire Door Inspection

All Grenville fire door inspectors are trained to the FDIS standard, we use a bespoke 37-point check list to thoroughly inspect your fire doors and produce a report to highlight defects found

Our fire door inspections consist of extensive checks of each individual fire door component. Inspections are completed by FDIS certified fire safety technician who is able to carefully assess each of the key components for faults, damage or wear.

Grenville Fire Protections visual fire door inspections begin by focusing on the door’s structural integrity, assessing the door leaf, door frame, self-closer, door hinges, door selector, locks and handles, panic hardware, apertures and glazing. The visual inspection also inspects passive protection features surrounding the door such as intumescent door strips and cold smoke seals. The gaps between the door and frame and the threshold gaps are measured. In addition, fire safety signage is checked for clarity and compliance, in line with current regulations.

What Is The Law Surrounding Fire Doors?

The gaps between the top and side of the door and frame of a fire door must be no more than 4mm when closed. The bottom gap can be up to 8mm, but this is entirely dependent on the door. We check for gaps, cracks and damages that can cause your fire door to fail or become inefficient.

The seals present around your fire door are integral to it working correctly. This intumescent seal is reactive to extreme heat and swells to seal the door in the event of heat or fire exposure. The seal limits the fire and smoke penetrating through the door gaps, providing vital extra time to evacuate.

Fire doors require a minimum of 3 British standard fire hinges, and they are required to be firmly fixed to the door and frame. Any missing hinges or broken screws can hinder the performance of the fire door.

We ensure that your fire door is capable of closing firmly without sticking and creates a snug seal.
