Fire Door Inspections

Fire doors are vital components to saving lives and protecting buildings and contents.

They provide critical protection in the event of an emergency, by stopping the spread of the fire throughout the building and keeping escape routes accessible.

A Plus Security specialises in carrying out fire door inspections to ensure that your property complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and with any new legislation that is passed into law.

  • How often fire door inspections should be carried out - As a general rule, the BS9999 recommends that a fire door inspection should be carried out once every six months. However this can vary on the type of building and who occupies it. Buildings subject to heavy traffic (schools, and hospitals etc), should consider increasing the frequency of checks.
  • Determining whether they are fit for purpose - As with any other life safety devices, fire doors need periodic inspection and maintenance to guarantee that they will serve their purpose in the event of a fire. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order places this obligation with the responsible person - often the business owner, or business manager. Only a competent and regulated inspection company should carry out the necessary checks of fire doors to determine whether or not they are fit for purpose.
  • What to expect during an inspection with us - During a fire door inspection, our technicians use a rigid criteria to inspect each and every component of the fire door assembly. Upon completion, you’ll receive a report detailing the conditions of each door – listing any areas of non-compliance which will be registered down for future on-going inspections.
  • The difference between a fire door and an escape door - The fire door will be located internally of the building, designed to withstand heat, and act as a physical barrier to prevent the spread of flames. The final escape door will be located at the exterior of the building to allow people to safely escape the building. Both must operate correctly and be fitted with the correct hardware and signage to comply with current regulations.

What our
clients have to
say about us

A Plus provides an excellent return on investment, not just through the solution installed, but the general experience they offer from pre-install to post-install and right through to the maintenance of the system. We knew we had made the right decision with A Plus as they offered a comprehensive and detailed proposal and project plan. The skill level of their engineers was a pleasant surprise with their knowledge of IT and networks, as well as electronic security, which made dealing with our internal IT team very smooth. Apart from that, the fact we never had to chase them for anything was a very nice surprise!

International Group of Schools

We chose A-Plus Security to carry out the upgrade of our electronic security systems for our 9 colleges and they have far exceeded our expectations in their approach to the projects. We are a UK wide organisation where the planning and mobilising of these major project around term times is time critical and A Plus Security have been nothing short of fantastic in the communication, there design proposals, openness to last minute changes, pre and post-sales support and their management of 3rd party companies and IT services. We would highly recommend A Plus Security to any organisation who are looking to install or upgrade their systems.

Nationwide Groups of Colleges

A Plus Security exceeded all expectations, following a late award of the contract due to a different contractor pulling out. All fire and security works were completed when requested and signed off on finish, with no issues noted. We have continued working with A Plus on following projects and would fully recommend them.
