Fire Door Inspection Scheme

We are delighted to announce that Justin Pindar has recently gained his Fire Door Inspection Scheme certification.

The Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS) was launched as a joint venture by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) and the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in 2012.

FDIS Certified inspectors are uniquely trained to undertake fire door inspections, their competence and knowledge are then independently assessed by Warringtonfire to become CertFDI certificated fire door inspectors.

Just like any other passive fire protection system, it is essential for a fire door to perform as intended in the event of a fire. Any slight alteration to the door or its surroundings can affect the performance. As such, a fire door should be regularly checked to ensure it functions correctly and will perform to its designed standard in the event of a fire.

Periodic checks should be carried out at least once every six months although newly occupied buildings may require more frequent checks in the first year of use. Plus, Where the fire door is in high use, it should be checked more frequently than other doors in the building. E.g. once per week/month.
