Fire doors are life safety systems and form an important part of a building’s passive
fire protection system, providing a barrier that prevents the flow of smoke and fire
and help compartmentalise a building to provide a safe means of escape for occupants
that helps protect other areas of the building
Fire Doors are essential in all buildings and must be regularly inspected, tested
and maintained to meet the requirements of article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire
Safety Order) 2005.
The Fire Risk Assessment will recommend the frequency of inspections as part of the
risk inspection process, but current guidance recommends that fire doors and their
components should be checked periodically, and the fire door inspection scheme suggests
that inspections are carried out every 6 months.
CWE inspections are carried out by suitably qualified fire door inspectors who are
FDIS trained, giving landlords, tenants, building managers, and owners the peace
of mind that the fire doors within the property have been properly inspected. Also
that any remedial actions needed to meet the requirements of BS 476 have been highlighted
and reported on.
Following the fire door inspection a full detailed report will be produced for each
door detailing all aspects of the door and any remedial works required.

In order to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order
2005, in the same way that Fire Alarm Systems, Emergency Lighting and Fire Extinguishers,
require inspection and maintenance, Fire Doors also require the same level of attention
in order to maintain compliance with the current legal requirements.
Responsible persons are duty bound under Article 17 of the Order to ensure that all
passive and active fire protection is under a “suitable and sufficient” programme
of inspection and maintenance, this includes Fire Doors.
