Who do I use to replace my fire door?
Quiz - how well do you understand your lease?
Understand the key things you should know about your lease. If you are a purchaser, this can help make sure your solicitor has covered all of these points and explained them clearly to you.
Correct installation of the fire door is important in order to make sure the door is fit for purpose.
A test certificate for all replacement doors should be provided to you by the contractor supplying/fitting the door, confirming that it meets the required fire safety standard. Alternatively fire doors can be marked in accordance with an accredited fire door installation scheme.
There are various accredited schemes, where you can view their register and find a suitably qualified trades person.
- BM Q-Mark OP37 fire door installation scheme
- BRE group windows and doors fire performance certification scheme
- Warrington Fire FIRAS Scheme for fire doors
Third party certification is a helpful guide but should not be relied upon.
Composite fire doors on the market should all have furnace test certificates for both sides of the door.
