Fire Door Inspection Scheme

FDS : Fire Door Inspection Team

A badly maintained fire door can kill.  A survey carried out by the FDIS highlighted that many fire doors across the UK suffer from severe defects.  Over 61% of the doors surveyed had fire or smoke seals either missing or installed incorrectly and almost 1 in 5 had unsuitable hinges.  Due to the crucial role that they play, it’s vital that fire doors are maintained exactly to the manufacturers specifications and checked regularly.  Here at Mann McGowan, your local FDIS inspector, we can provide the specialist skills required to check each and every fire door in your building.

Don’t delay, contact us today and help keep your building safe.
