Training

 

Inspections have shown that the recurring problem with timber fire doors is non-compliant installation and maintenance. They are usually installed by tradesmen that although quite able to install a timber door often fail to understand that a fire door must be installed in accordance with British Standards and manufacturer's instructions. Add to that a lack of knowledge amongst timber & builders merchants about the compatibility of components and the result is that many buildings are at increased risk of any fire and smoke spreading faster and further than building regulations and the buildings' fire safety strategy would otherwise allow.

 

Years of experience in this field means we understand the issues and problems faced by building owners and  operators as well as installers, maintenance operatives and suppliers too.

 

We offer Fire Door education training sessions to: 

  To help building owners and operators manage their fire doors and how to resolve installation and maintenance       problems.

  We provide training for installers and maintainers to help make sure that installation and maintenance work is         compliant using the right components. 

  We also offer training for sales people at timber & builders merchants to help ensure the correct and compatible     hardware components are supplied with the fire door.
