FAFS Fire & Security have a specialist passive fire department.

The key to passive fire protection is to contain the fire to a particular compartment or room, giving occupants enough time to escape and the emergency services enough time to enter the building and tackle the fire.

We carry out a comprehensive range of services from fire door inspections, upgrades, replacements and new installations.

Our experienced inspection teams will identify all areas of non-compliance and will check that existing fire sealing has been carried out using the correct materials to the required standards.

Our fire door installation service enables you to have a full and comprehensive installation certificate of 10 identifiable points, along with full test and data sheets of all materials used.

In addition we conduct fire stopping and compartmentation work. We install fire-stopping to breaches, returning compartments to the required levels of protection. This ranges from coating systems and filling breaches in compartment walls & ceilings with intumescent materials to reinstate the necessary level of fire protection.

Our team of skilled installers can remediate Fire Doors that can be certified without the cost of replacing the doors and add years to the life cycle of existing Fire Doors.

How do fire doors work?

Fire Doors work together in an integrated system in order to preserve life and property by:

In serving to compartmentalise a building and/or preserve an escape route, the function of a fire door, when closed, is to provide resistance to smoke/fire for a minimum specified length of time.

 

Typically, this is 30 minutes or 60 minutes (FD30 or FD60). It is possible to have steel fire doors offering up to 4 hours resistance but this level of protection is usually only a requirement in specific, high-risk environments.

Thirty minutes should, in most situations, allow for the evacuation of premises and response of the emergency fire services. Your Fire Risk Assessment should identify which level of fire resistance your fire doors should require.

How often do I need to inspect my fire doors?

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, the responsible person in your building/s should carry out regular checks of the fire doors within your premises to ensure fire doors are repaired and maintained as fit for purpose.

Fire door inspection shows whether or not fire doors are compliant and if remedial work is necessary. The remedial work will be outlined in the inspection report and will identify if a door needs replacing or can be repaired.

It is a recommendation to BS 9999 that all fire doors, frames and ancillary components are examined every six months.
