When installing fire doors in new buildings all works must comply with the relevant building regulations, Approved Document B (Fire Safety) and BS 8214: 2016 Timber-based Fire Door Assemblies – Code of Practice. For replacement of fire doors in existing buildings, the works must comply with the UK fire safety regulations.

Thank you. I am new to the world of fire doors and it has been a good learning process for me, so thankyou for your patience with my various questions. I’m sure that now I have a better understanding of how this all works, I’ll be much better equipped to know what I’m looking at and how to proceed post-inspection with any future reports we get you to do.
The consensus from the group is that the course went really well. Everyone came out with a good understanding of what is required and how we can move on. They thought the course was presented really well and having the books and memory sticks was a good way of studying the course content.
