Fire Door Inspections Across Multiple Sectors

Since the Regulatory Reform Order of 2005, there have been several instances of Fire & Rescue services prosecuting businesses for Fire Safety Order breaches. We provide fire door inspections with the sole intention of keeping your building safe and preventing you from facing a large fine. When inspecting your fire doors, we only suggest remedial works that are necessary. We are not here to condemn your doors and cost you unnecessary expense. Instead we will advise you on how your fire doors can be improved to help keep building users safe and maintained to comply with fire safety law.
We can also inspect new fire doors that have been recently installed so that compliance is confirmed before the contractor leaves the site, as well as older doors that have been repaired or upgraded.

We carry out inspections for:

  • Housing associations
  • Care homes
  • Landlords
  • Historic buildings
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Factories
  • Warehouses

Neil Ashdown would be my go to guy on fire doors. Unrivalled experience. He's a guy you can trust.

Dex Allen

Contractor

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.

Covenant Management

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.
