Course description

Timber Fire Door - Installation, Repair & Maintenance

The importance of good fire door 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.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

CPD: 6 hours

BRE and the DHF (Door & Hardware Federation) have developed this comprehensive and practical one-day training course that provides important details that must be addressed when installing, repairing and maintaining fire doors.

The importance of good fire door 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 Program is implemented and that any maintenance identified is carried out promptly.
