Bexhill Fire Doors

Fire Door Installation Bexhill

A fire door is a vital safety device engineered to save lives and your Bexhill property. Fire doors are part of a building’s passive fire protection system, an essential requirement for ALL public buildings, offices and factories. Fire doors are also a requirement in certain domestic situations, such as in flats.

This is essential where a door leads into an integral garage, and in any dwelling where there is a second floor ‘habitable’ room, such as houses with loft conversions or a ‘room in the roof’.

FIRE DOOR INSPECTIONS IN Bexhill

At CSB Fire Protection, we provide a highly robust and fully insured fire door inspection service. This is where our team of fully qualified fire inspection experts can check all fire doors for damages or defects which cause more harm than good.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU HAVE A FIRE DOOR INSPECTION?

In order for fire doors to perform effectively in the event of a fire, regular inspections should be undertaken to ensure their structural integrity and functionality. Six-monthly inspections are recommended by BS 9999 in addition to the monthly inspection checks outlined within the government guidance documentation.

WHAT IS COVERED DURING A FIRE DOOR INSPECTION?

Fire door inspections in Bexhill consist of extensive checks of each individual fire door component. Inspections should be completed by a certified fire safety technician in Bexhill who is able to carefully assess each of the key components for faults, damage or wear.

CSB Fire Protection visual fire door inspections begin by focusing on the fire door’s structural integrity, assessing the fire door leaf, fire door frame, self-closer, door hinges, door selector, locks and handles, panic hardware, apertures and glazing. The visual fire door inspection also inspects passive protection features surrounding the door such as intumescent door strips and cold smoke seals. The gaps between the fire door and frame and the threshold gaps are measured. In addition, fire safety signage is checked for clarity and compliance, in line with current regulations.

What’s the difference between nominal, notional and upgraded fire doors?

What are nominal fire doors?

A nominal fire door is a timber-based door designed to provide fire resistance for a specified period, according to a fire door inspector. Unlike certified fire doors, nominal fire doors have not undergone formal fire resistance performance tests to determine their fire rating. Instead, their performance is based solely on the opinion of the fire door inspector.

What are notional fire doors?

According to UK government guidelines, a notional fire door is one that met the fire resistance standards in place at the time it was built. As a result, these doors may not comply with the latest codes, regulations, and tests. They might lack intumescent strips and smoke seals, and may not even be constructed correctly.

What are upgraded fire doors?

According to UK government advice, an upgraded fire door is a notional fire door that has been enhanced with additions such as intumescent strips, smoke seals, and sometimes a protected letterbox if necessary.

However, you cannot simply add these features to any door and consider it an upgraded fire door. The door's overall condition and core construction significantly impact its fire resistance. To ensure satisfactory performance, the door must be comparable to a certified fire door. Adding these fittings to a lightweight door with thin panels would not result in a fire door.

Fire doors, their ratings, and how best to upgrade

Today, fire doors undergo performance tests to determine their fire resistance rating, typically ranging from FD20 to FD120, where FD20 provides 20 minutes of fire resistance and FD120 provides 120 minutes.

Nominal and notional fire doors have not been subjected to these tests and, therefore, lack evidence of fire resistance or certification. This increases their fire risk, which should be noted in any fire risk assessment for buildings containing such doors.

When installing new fire doors is not feasible, upgrading suitable existing doors can be an effective way to enhance building safety. The best approach involves first assessing the door's suitability and condition. After the assessment, necessary repairs and improvements should be made to ensure the door performs as closely as possible to a certified fire door.
