Site Services

At FDM, we have over 400 highly trained experts across the UK ready to inspect and maintain your Fire Doors. We offer off-the-shelf services along with bespoke solutions to meet the needs of our customers.

We have excellent relationships with many of the UK’s leading door manufacturers. We leverage those relationships to ensure that our operatives are skilled in dealing with any type of Fire Door that you will find in the UK.

We offer a comprehensive and detailed asset-checking service. The level of detail we can provide does depend on the amount of information that is available. We research the history of the door and its components. The historic element can be incredibly valuable. When component changes are made to the door post-installation, it can impact whether or not the door is still compliant. This includes the ability to source primary test evidence from manufacturers which may have installed doors several years ago.

Our thorough inspections test every element of the fire door and its components. Test evidence will be recorded, and thorough reports will be provided. We partner with CCS, whose software enables us to incorporate this evidence into a more thorough and comprehensive fire door inspection solution. We are proud to be able to offer this level of detail and we believe this is integral to the ‘Golden Thread of Information’, helping the Fire Door industry become safer and more compliant.

All FDM operators have been specially trained at our state-of-the-art Fire Door training facility. This training has been developed based on FDM’s vast industry knowledge and experience of the Fire Doors and involves practical and theory-based learning. The training centre includes doors from many manufacturers across the UK, which means our operatives are well-equipped to handle any fire door.

FDM service operatives are specially trained to carry out work to the highest standard, ensuring safety and full compliance with UK legislation.

Legal Considerations

Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022

Enforced in January 2023, the Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022 regulations set new legal duties for those who own or manage multi-occupied residential buildings over 11m high. These include new procedures for checking fire doors to make sure they are still suitable after their original fire risk assessment.

The person legally responsible for a building’s fire safety, known as the ‘responsible person’ must carry out annual inspections on all flat entrance doors, and quarterly checks on fire doors within communal areas and which cross corridors. A responsible person is usually the building’s landlord or manager.

The overall aim is to ensure fire doors are in good working order, including checking for any defects which could undermine their ability to prevent fire and smoke from spreading.

Section 156 of the Building Safety Act

Comes into effect 1st October 2023

  • The fire risk assessment must be a written document
  • Policies and procedures must also be a written documents
  • Residents must have access to relevant fire safety information
  • The name and UK address for the responsible and accountable people
  • The identity of any person making assessments on behalf of the responsible person e.g. who has carried out the Fire Risk Assessment, Fire Extinguisher checks, Fire Alarm checks, Sprinkler checks etc.
  • Outgoing/Incoming responsible people must pass all relevant fire safety information (written records)
  • Must be adequate cooperation between responsible people (communal areas)

For higher risk buildings (over 18M) the term “Risk Based” has been removed and “Proof” is now required

  • This applies to all types of buildings (not just residential!)
  • The Fire authorities will be responsible for building inspections.
  • The Fire authorities are allowed to request all the above written documentation in advance of any building inspection.
  • Failure to supply the written documentation will be a breach of the rules.
  • A breach will most likely result in a prosecution and fines.
