Don’t know if your Fire Doors are compliant? The first step you should take is bringing in a competant, certified company to conduct a Fire Door Survey.

Certifications include the likes of BM Trada, which is the only Government approved certification that can be used to work on Ministry Of Defence buildings and buildings such as schools etc…

Good news, we’re BM Trada Certified! Our surveys are followed by a comprehensive report for each individual door detailing what was checked, what is compliant, what isn’t compliant and what you need to do to become compliant. If remedial works can be carried out or a door needs a complete replacement, we will send you a free quote for the works required.

Fire doors must be able to resist fire and smoke for a specific period of time. This is usually 30 or 60 minutes long and the level of fire resistance required will depend on the location and use of the building.


Suitable materials must be used when manufacturing fire doors such as timber or steel, and must be fitted with appropriate seals to prevent the spread of smoke and fire.


When installing fire doors they must be installed correctly and with suitable fire tested hardware. These include hinges and closers, to ensure they work and coinside with the level of fire resistance the door and frame can withstand.


Fire doors must be maintained in good condition and be checked reguarly to ensure they continue to provie the required level of fire resistance. Any damage or defects must be repaired promptly. Recommended servicing schedules include quartly or every 6 months although annual inspections are not uncommon.

It’s important to note that fire door regulations and standards remain the same in all situations however, your responsibilities may vary depending on the specific building and its intended use which can be found in your fire risk assessment for the building. Therefore, we recommend that you consult a qualified fire safety professional to ensure that your fire doors comply with the latest guidance and governance set forth by the Government.

Fire Door Survey Door Areas


1. It is recommended that Fire Doors have 3 sets of hinges for each door leaf to maintan the integrity of the door due to it’s weight. These door hinges must be fire rated.

2. Glazing within a Fire Door must be fire resistant.

3. The gap between the door and frame should be 2-4mm.

4. Fire Doors should be fitted with signs on both sides of the door, especially if they’re a set of two doors.

5. Fire Doors should all be fitted with a Fire Door closer.

6. The Fire Door frame should have the same rating as the Fire Door, ideally they would be purchased together to ensure this.

7. Intumescent strips and cold smoke seals should be fitted to the top and sides of all door leaves to prevent the spread of smoke and fire.

8. A Fire Door retainer such as Dorgard can be fitted to legally ‘hold’ open the Fire Door.

We’ve had several windows and my entire studio, roof light, windows and doors fitted with the UV film. As a picture framer it’s important that I take care of client’s artwork. We’ve always been impressed with the service provided and a recent installation lived up to the usual high standard. The team arrived bright and early, completed a great installation of the UV film to a south facing window. The guys were friendly, helpful and very respectful of our property, for which we are very grateful. Thank you for another job well done. Bev Saunders

From start to finish, I am totally delighted. We wanted a sliding service window for our GP Surgery Dispensary and Next Doors were so helpful. An engineer called to assess our requirements after my enquiry email and the same engineer Craig came to fit the window on the agreed date. No Fuss, No Bother just a superb job. The window fit is perfect and it operates just as we wanted. We are so pleased and highly recommend Next Doors Ltd
