Fire Door Maintenance
At GRJ we offer a fire door maintenance service for all the fire doors currently installed in a property to ensure their effectiveness. Fire doors are often subject to general wear and tear which can affect their ability to prevent fire and smoke from spreading during an emergency.
Regular fire door maintenance is essential to ensure all of your fire doors are in operational condition and compliant with the government regulations. In commercial and residential buildings of multiple occupants fire protection is a legal obligation of the owner or property manager under the Building Regulations and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 in England and Wales.
As a Responsible Person it’s your obligation to make sure regular fire risk assessments including fire door inspections are carried out so maintenance can be completed. Not complying with the up to date regulations can pose a serious risk to the safety of your building’s occupants and result in fines or even criminal charges.
Make sure your building is protected with GRJ. Get in touch with our team today to enquire about fire door maintenance services.

What is the purpose of a fire door?
Fire doors are used in fire compartmentation to prevent smoke and flames from spreading through the building and confining them to one area. They also serve as a means to allow occupants in the building enough time to safely evacuate.
What are the legal requirements for a fire door?
The main fire safety legislation for England and Wales - The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that fire doors are legally required in all non-domestic properties. Those include office buildings, commercial premises and other public properties. They are also required in all high-rise residential flats and houses of multiple occupants.
How long can a fire door protect you?
Most commonly a fire door will be classed as either FD30 or FD60, depending on the time it can withstand flames. FD30 fire doors will provide fire resistance of 30 minutes while FD60 offer 60 minutes of fire protection. This is done to allow all occupants sufficient time to escape the building safely.
How can you recognise a fire door?
There are several ways to identify a fire door. The easiest one is by the fire-rated label that all fire doors are required to have according to the NFPA 80. Those labels are there to mark that the fire door and frame have passed an inspection in accordance with the required standards.
