Inspection needed for peace of mind

Michelle Baker, Care Manager at Brampton Lodge wanted to book a routine fire door inspection to ensure the care home was safe and compliant.

As Brampton Lodge is a residential care home, it’s important to ensure all fire doors are up to standard so that residents are kept safe. If a fire were to break out, a fire door can prevent the spread of smoke and fire for up to 60 minutes, providing crucial time for people to evacuate safely.

the solution

Easy experience and non-disruptive service

After carrying out some research online, Michelle found Fireco and gave us a call to enquire. “Fireco were really easy to book in with, they had great availability and the person I spoke to on the phone was really helpful” explains Michelle.

“When Martin the Fire Door Inspector arrived he got straight on with the work. He was very mindful of the residents and ensured he wasn’t encroaching on their day – it was like he wasn’t even there!”

Fire doors play a key part in preventing the spread of smoke and fire. However, they can only do this if they’re in good condition.

There are many factors to be considered when checking the compliance of a fire door! Due to high usage, it’s important to get your fire doors checked and maintained regularly by a professional inspector. The British Woodworking Federation suggests doors should be checked every 6 months. Used alongside your regular Fire Risk Assessment it will give you a clearer understanding of your fire safety requirements.
