    Correctly installing fire doors and doorsets and their on-going repair and maintenance is critical to the safety of building occupants. Fire doors play a vital role in containing fire and the spread of smoke in the event of a fire.

    The importance of good installation cannot be overemphasised.  Poor installation can mean that an otherwise well-manufactured door fails to provide the required performance in the event of a fire.  The installation of a doorset is as much a part of the fire resistance test as the doorset itself.  Therefore, any alterations to the method of installation must be covered by a test report, an assessment report or an extended field of application report.

    Repair and maintenance of a life-safety device such as a fire door is imperative.  Generally, after handover, this responsibility passes to the building owner.  Ongoing maintenance should be considered a preventive measure to ensure that the doorset operates correctly at all times.  Where problems are identified it is extremely important that a system is in place to ensure that timely corrective action takes place so that failure of the doorset is prevented.  It is strongly recommended that a scheduled programme is implemented and that any maintenance undertaken is carried out by a company that is certified for this type of work.

    Course objectives:

    • Thorough understanding of the regulations and standards applying to fire doors
    • Knowledge of the different types of fire doors and their installation, repair and maintenance.
    • Appreciate the importance of critical components such as door closers and hinges

    The day concludes with a short examination.
