 FIRE DOOR REPAIRS

 

 

LFS repairs and upgrades existing fire doors, saving our clients the expense of renewal and ensuring they meet their corporate and social responsibilities by reusing doors (subject to survey). As a certified door manufacturer, we independently assess, and have the approval to use, numerous Global Assessments from door blank distributors.

FIRE DOOR REPAIRS CARRIED OUT NATIONWIDE​

 

As with all LFS services, our fire door repair services are available throughout Greater London, Kent, and the Midlands in both commercial and residential properties. Originally established in 2011, in London, England, to serve the local area there, we have since worked on hundreds of fire door repair and maintenance projects, providing our range of passive fire protection services to private and public organisations across the UK.

THE IMPORTANCE OF FIRE DOORS

 

Fire doors are a legal requirement in all commercial and domestic properties with at least 2 floors in accordance with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. These doors are one of the most important elements of ensuring occupant safety in any commercial or residential building. Fire doors are designed to compartmentalise a fire in a limited space for at least 30 minutes with the aim of protecting occupants and the property.


Ensuring fire doors are in their best condition, carrying out fire door assessments, and making repairs as soon as issues are identified are the only way to reduce fire risks that the use of fire doors can prevent. Once doors are compliant, LFS will issue certification under both our BM Trada Q-Mark scheme and our FIRAS accreditation. This saves clients money and time to have both accreditations and ensures fire doors meet fire safety standards quickly without manufacturing new doors.

LEGAL OBLIGATIONS TO REPAIR FIRE DOORS

 

The legal obligations that need to be fulfilled are outlined in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This details all of the commercial or domestic building owner’s responsibilities surrounding fire safety and prevention methods that should be in place to protect the occupants of the building. The responsible person is therefore legally responsible for organising maintenance and repairs of fire doors and other passive fire protection systems in place within the building. 

Responsible persons must install quality fire doors that slow the progression of fires and help contain fires in limited spaces within a building. Any damage or inadequacies in fire doors can have detrimental effects of its level of fire resistance. Ensure that any necessary repairs are carried out as soon as possible to maximise fire safety for occupants and the property.
