Description

This course is in partnership with the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF)

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 programme is implemented, and that any maintenance identified is carried out promptly.

The objective of the course is to provide you with guidance on:

  • understanding the regulations and standards applying to fire doors
  • the different types of fire doors available
