Stay Safe With Our Fire Door Safety Service

Stay Safe With Our Fire Door Safety Service

There are many processes required to keep commercial and industrial premises safe, from the regular testing of equipment, to integrating occupational health into a comprehensive workplace safety culture. However, despite health and safety receiving increasing focus from employers of all shapes and sizes, there’s one simple safeguard that is often neglected: fire doors.

If you’re looking for fire door solutions, you’ll be pleased to hear that the experts here at Intertech Contracts are fully accredited under the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme for fire door installation and fire door maintenance. This enables us to provide the very best fire doors either as a one-off project or whilst carrying out a painting and decorating project at your premises.


Why are fire doors so important?

Everyone knows that a fire door plays a role in health and safety in the event of a fire, but do you realise just how crucial they are? Below are the key reasons to have fire doors installed throughout your offices, commercial units or industrial sites.

  • Fire doors are specifically designed to stop the spread of not just fire but also smoke, helping to keep staff safe and increase visibility on stairwells and throughout the fire evacuation route.
  • In the process, fire doors retain the fire as much as possible, which results in fewer areas, equipment and contents being damaged. This can also help to minimise the cost of business insurance.
  • When the firefighters arrive, fire doors help them to tackle the blaze more efficiently by reducing the time it takes to extinguish the flames.
  • Put simply, fire doors save lives.


How do fire doors work?

A crucial part of a fire door’s structure is intumescent strips, which expand when they reach a certain temperature and seal the gap between the door and the frame. This stops the smoke from entering additional rooms and also holds back the fire more than a normal door.


Exceptional fire door safety service

If you need fire doors, we’re here to install them and also provide ongoing maintenance, which includes regular inspections to ensure they remain compliant and effective.

Alternatively, if you already have fire doors in place, we can carry out regular inspections to determine whether they’re meeting current British Standards and the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO). These inspections cover all aspects of the fire doors, including the door leaf, doorframe, seals, hardware and glazing, so you gain the peace of mind that your premises have been inspected by an accredited professional with a keen eye for detail.

This is followed up with a detailed report – if there are any issues, we can either fix them or offer you a competitive quote for a replacement fire door system of the highest standard.

Whether it’s installations, inspections or maintenance, we’re here to deliver a first-rate fire door safety service. To find out more, contact Wayne Tompkins at [email protected] or call 01482 222498.
