Fire Door Inspection

Starting from January 2023, responsible persons of multi-occupied residential buildings with storeys over 11m are legally required to conduct quarterly and annual checks on fire doors. At Howes, our expert team of fire door surveyors, can assist you with comprehensive fire door survey checks for every fire door and fire exit in your building.

After completing the inspection, we provide you with an accurate and detailed report that is easy to understand. The report includes photographs, ensuring a comprehensive record of the inspection. By reviewing our report, you can easily identify potential hazards associated with incorrectly installed or faulty fire doors.

Our fire door inspection report not only outlines the essential checks necessary to comply with current regulations but also suggests non-critical but advisable repairs and adjustments.

To ensure compliance, it is important to employ a competent inspector to inspect the fire doors at your premises following a fire risk assessment. By choosing a certified inspector like Howes, you can be assured that the advice given will meet regulations and protect you from compliance issues.

Our inspection process involves the following steps:

  1. Determining the manufacturer’s evidence to inspect the doorsets.
  2. Conducting a thorough fire door inspection.
  3. Labelling each fire door with a unique reference number.
  4. Issuing a detailed report that includes images, defect details, and recommendations to comply with BS 8214:2016.

If you are also in need of an initial Fire Risk Assessment, we offer this service as well. Our team at Howes is dedicated to ensuring the safety and compliance of your building.
