Why you NEED Fire Door Remedials

Fire doors play a pivotal role in ensuring the overall safety within your building. Therefore, it is incredibly important that they are properly maintained throughout their use, helping to assure the ongoing safety of all occupants within the building.

Properly maintained fire doors can prevent the spread of smoke and fire, providing occupants with a safe means of escape.


Neglecting fire door remedials can have serious consequences. It may result in non-compliance with building regulations, increased fire risks, and potential legal liability in the event of a fire-related incident.

As stated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): 

In addition to the annual inspection and testing of fire door
assemblies, it is the facility manager’s responsibility to retain
records — in either hard copy or digital form.

Did you know?

Building owners and managers are responsible for ensuring fire doors are properly maintained and remediated as needed.

Data on over 100,000 inspections shows 75% of fire doors fail to meet safety standards.

What do Fire Door Remedials involve?

Fire door remedials refer to the necessary actions and improvements made to fire doors to ensure they function correctly and meet safety standards. This includes repairs, maintenance, and upgrades.


This could involve replacing faulty fire doors, upgrading hardware, or improving fire door seals. Some of the most common faults and issues that may need remedial works are hinges, glazing, signage and air transfer grills.

After initial inspection, a timeline and schedule for the remedial works is established, prioritising critical issues that pose an immediate fire risk.

After remedial work is completed, a reassessment is conducted to ensure that the fire doors now meet the required safety standards.
