Fire door regulations - changed from annual to 3 monthly! We'll support you in 2023!



Responsible persons for residential and management companies are being urged to prepare themselves for upcoming changes to The Fire Safety (England) Regulations 2022, with regard to Fire Door maintenance.


From 22 January 2023, there will be new legal requirements for all multi-occupied residential buildings in England with storeys over 11 metres in height. This includes undertaking quarterly checks of all fire doors and self-closing devices in the common areas.


There will also be a new expectation to carry out annual checks “on a best endeavour basis” of all flat entrance doors (including self-closing devices) that lead to a building’s common areas.


According to the Government guidance notes, “The regulations will require responsible persons to provide to residents of all multi-occupied residential buildings with two or more sets of domestic premises (that have common parts) information on the importance of fire doors to a building’s fire safety.”


With severe penalties highlighted for non-compliance, Protest ES Ltd has trained fire door specialists that can ensure checks are made in strict accordance with the new regulations.


Protest ES Ltd tests the complete door assembly, including frame, seals, hardware, panels, as well as the door leaves themselves, constantly checking for any defects. These tests can be carried out as part of regular maintenance schedules to ensure minimum disruption for residents.
