Fire Door Maintenance

"A suitable system of maintenance and are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair"

RRFSO requires that those assisting the Responsible person are competent to do so!! How do you demonstrate competence to carry out fire door Maintenance? RRFSO says: Competent Person must have sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to enable him to properly assist…..

Maintenance is carried out on the basis that the doorset history is as follows:

  • It was originally manufactured and installed as a fire resisting doorset

  • It was originally installed correctly with appropriate fire stopping to rear of frame and structural opening.

  • The appropriate door frame material was used for the doorset and for the period of fire resistance

Maintenance is carried out on the basis that the doorset history is as follows:

  • The structural opening is appropriate for the period of fire resistance

  • The intumescent materials and hardware were correct at the time of installation

  • Ongoing maintenance / repair work has been conducted correctly without changing the specification of the doorset or affecting any of the above assumptions

Assumptions should be checked wherever practical.

  • Steps should be taken to rectify the issues found, but it is important that responsibility is not assumed for all aspects of the doorset performance.

  • Re-instatement to as-found specification,
