Industry leading planned preventative maintenance of your doors.
Call: 01902 798 024
You as a building owner or responsible person have the legal responsibility to maintain fire doors and ensure that they are compliant and fit for purpose. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 set out these obligations and huge fines are handed out to individuals and companies that do not comply.
All fire doors should be inspected every six months at an absolute minimum. And any remedial work should be carried out as quickly as possible. The upcoming Fire Safety Bill is set to make it a legal obligation to carry out fire door inspections on flat entrance doors in HMOs.
The problem is that many companies and individuals do not know how to inspect or maintain fire doors. Often, work is not carried out until it is too late, and companies are finding that they are faced with unexpected expenses. This is where Fire Door Total Compliance can help you as a building owner, responsible person, or landlord.

Here are some questions we frequently get asked about fire doors.
How often should I inspect my fire doors?
As a general rule of thumb you need to inspect your fire doors every six months at minimum. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that the Responsible Person has to inspect and maintain fire safety equipment – this includes fire doors. BS9999 also makes a direct reference to schools and hospitals and states that they have to inspect fire doors every six months.
Do all of my fire doors need closers?
Not all fire doors require a closer. However, most do need one. Doors that are locked such as riser doors and cleaner’s cupboards do not require closers. All other doors do need one. That includes flat entrance doors, cross-corrifor doors and stairwell doors.
Can I paint my fire door?
Yes, in fact at AJM we strongly recommend that you gloss or paint all of your paint grade doors. The reason for this is because timber doors take on and lose moisture depending on the atmospheric conditions. By glossing a door you help keep the moisture content of the door stable. If the door is constantly taking on and losing moisture over time it begins to warp and gaps open up.
Do I need intumescent seals?
Yes, all timber fire doors require intumescent seals. In the event of a fire they expand and seal all of the gaps.
Why do fire doors fail an inspection?
Most fire doors fail an inspection due to poor installation and modifications that affect the integrity of the fire door. The main reasons that fire doors fail is because of gaps and incompatible hardware.
