The importance of maintaining Fire Doors cannot be over-emphasised. A Fire Door is more than just the door leaf. It is part of a whole ‘door set’, which includes the door, the frame, hinges, other performance related ironmongery, seals, and importantly the way these are installed into the wall. These elements all require regular inspection and maintenance.
Unlike a general inspection, which is usually intended as guidance and not specific to the nature of the door in question, our intellectual property ownership enables Fire Door Inspection Solutions to carry out inspections in accordance with the speci c test evidence of the product, thus improving the accuracy of the inspection and demonstrable cost reductions.
Often door manufacturers make claims that their products are tested to show that the con guration of the door, door frame and ironmongery meet the relevant compliance standards. However unless certification documents can be produced to evidence these claims, there is no proof and more importantly a potential non-compliance issue with the fire door installed.
The majority of our competitors can offer a limited inspection service, but thanks to our accreditations, our ownership of intellectual property rights, our access to test evidence and the years of experience we have in product and brand development, we are able to offer so much more.
All inspections carried out by Fire Door Inspection Solutions are handled by operatives who are fully trained to a minimum of level 1 under the third party independent Fire Door Inspection Scheme. Findings of any inspection visit are quickly and accurately uploaded to the cloud on mobile devices. Pre-agreed rates for any element of a unit, which could require modi cation or replacement, are also linked to the system.
This means that fully itemised costings can be generated whilst on site to ensure an effective and timely response to the client.
Secure client access ensures that all reports, any actions and the status of a particular doorset can be accessed either on-site or remotely in real time including historical data inclusive of photographic evidence.
Our extensive range of products include those rated for fire, smoke, acoustic, x-ray and hygienic post-formed applications.
Regardless of which solution is required, the doors will be delivered or replaced within 7 days, thanks to our dedicated production line. For particularly urgent scenarios, a 24-hour premium service is available.
Full access to like-for-like new, fully-certified products and the Leaderflush Shapland legacy scheduling service means that door matching is never an issue and the acquisition of all data relating to the specific doorset is made seamless by the Fire Door Inspection Solutions team.
It may not always be necessary to replace a particular door and – especially at a time when cost ef ciency is key to business success and growth – the modification of an existing door set may be a very viable, compliant and preferred option.
Through our rights to the Leaderflush Shapland IP we hold extensive historical certification data for doors supplied previously by LS, TDSL, John Porter Doors and of course the current certification of IDSL. This enables Fire Door Inspection Solutions to fit third party ironmongery/ components to these doors without invalidating the performance of the product. Our technical strength is a cornerstone of our offering and support to our client base We can advise our clients about the door certification applicable at the time the door was originally installed through the certification data we hold. This data tells us the version of certification valid at the time of the original door installation meaning that any retrospective work to the doorsets will be completed in accordance with the product requirements at that time ensuring full compliance.
Additional enhancements such as French polishing can also be made to restore a unit to its former glory.
On-line recording and tracking of any modifications undertaken by Fire Door Inspection Solutions is carried out as standard and this allows us to be pro-active in the tackling of any PPM; providing details of life-cycle costings and advising on the most cost effective solutions to the client in the future.
All doorsets are installed by our expert joiners, signed off by either a level 1 or level 2 third party-trained Fire Door Inspection Solutions operative. Our operatives are fully aware of product constraints, certification parameters and installation requirements.
A Fire Door is often only as good as the components that make it. Material components such as seals, glass, ironmongery and glazing beads are available to order directly from Fire Door Inspection Solutions, in line with the test evidence of the doorset.
Please bear in mind however, that replacement components fitted by others will not always ensure that the door will comply with the original certification, unless signed off by a specialist.
