Fire Door Inspection & Certification

​Panoramic Fire and Security Ltd can undertake independent fire door inspections with our trained and competent inspectors. We do not manufacture or install Fire Doors so we provide a truly independent appraisal. Fire doors in buildings should be inspected on a 6-monthly basis as a minimum. Fire Doors where traffic is high are likely to be more susceptible to damage and should be checked more frequently than other doors in the building. E.g. once per week or once per month. Newly occupied buildings may require more frequent fire door inspections in the first year of use.

Fire Door Inspection & Certification

Fire Door Compliance

A fire door is essential in splitting a building into ‘compartments’.  In the event of a fire a properly maintained fire door will contain smoke and fire to a specific area and allow for the safe evacuation of people from the building. In order to ensure compliance it is important that fire doors are inspected and maintained correctly and regularly. Failure to do so can put lives and property at risk and can result in prosecution.

  • Inspections by competent qualified persons.
  • Fire door inspections every six months minimum.
  • Fire Doors information from customer is key to providing good information.
  • Fire Doors protect fire compartment integrity and should match fire lines.

Once our inspectors have completed your Fire Door Inspection, we will offer the report with any advisories and also help with a route to gaining compliance should any parts fail.

Further Information

Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 Section 17 stipulates that all fire protection systems and elements of fire compartmentation should be subject to routine inspection and maintenance to ensure that they are in good working order.

Article 17 of the Fire Safety Order makes it a legal requirement to ensure that all fire resisting doors and escape doors are correctly installed and adequately maintained in order for them to be fit for purpose.

Regulation 38

Regulation 38 applies in England and Wales and states that fire safety information must be handed to a ‘responsible person’ at the completion of a project, or when the building or extension is first occupied. This then places the responsibility of fire safety onto the ‘responsible person’. In order for the responsible person to carry out future fire door inspections and maintenance, it is important that the correct information such as installation and maintenance instructions and traceability to the fire certificate is handed to them.

I have worked with PFAS for a number of years and would highly recommend them to any prospective clients. Not only do they provide an excellent installation service but they always go the extra mile to ensure customer needs are met and we are kept updated with enhancements in technology and equipment. Jodie and Chris have also proven to be reliable and conscientious when responding to emergencies and understanding the nature of our business. I would be reluctant to use anyone other than Panoramic.

Dan Reason, Site Service Facilities Manager – The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust Wide.

We have been working with Panoramic Fire and Security for a number of years now, they are our sole supplier for all our security requirements across all of our sites. Whenever we are in the market for additional equipment or opening new sites we always put the job out to tender, we find that Panoramic are always competitive, very professional and most importantly always looking for the best solutions to fit our business needs. From the directors down to the trainee engineers we find that the staff are always knowledgeable, flexible and always willing to go the extra mile. Customer Satisfaction is always their priority and I would not hesitate in recommending Panoramic’s Products and services.
