We are able to offer a Periodic Fire Door Inspection assessment, this is suited to organisations such as schools, universities, nursing homes, landlords, office complexes and so on.
We would provide a periodic inspection report for each of the specified Fire Doors, in this report we would correlate a full and complete asset schedule of all Fire Doors within the property. We would identify any remedial actions required and provide comment on the state of the specified Fire Door(s) in relation to conditions in the adjacent vicinity and the overall risk that any observed defect may present.
Each Fire Door would be inspected against a set of criteria developed by H&K Safety Services, based on check sheets from Fire Door Training UK, The Building Research Establishment (BRE Academy) in conjunction with The Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) along with the freely available checklist provided by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF).

New fire safety guidelines will be implemented for all buildings regulated by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO).
This guidance is part of the Home Office's fire safety reform programme's Phase 3 and is a crucial step towards bolstering fire safety on all FSO-regulated premises.
The new regulations aim to enhance collaboration and coordination between responsible persons (RPs), impose stricter requirements for recording and sharing of fire safety information, simplify the process for enforcement authorities to act against non-compliance, and provide residents with comprehensive information regarding fire safety in their buildings.
The benefits of the new legislation are ...
