Are you aware of Regulation 10 on Fire Doors which came in on 23rd January 2023?
We have been involved in the fire and life safety industry for over 20 years across many different sectors, clients and buildings. Initially starting out in 'Active' systems (fire alarm systems, Public Address Voice Annunciation, Disabled Refuge Systems, Emergency Lights, portable and fixed suppression systems etc) with the changes in the industry in 2005/2006 and the introduction of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order and Fire Risk Assessments this started to change the industry.
Life safety and the legislations that surround it have been built on disasters and the tragedy of Grenfell in 2017 again changed the industry.
For the past 5 years we have now been working in 'Passive' systems (Fire Doors, Compartmentation, Fire Stopping, Fire Risk Assessments, Fire Strategy) as legislation changes, and buildings and the onus of ensuring these vitally important and integral measures are kept compliant.
We now have BlueSky UKAS Accreditation for Fire Door Inspections and certification. We see this as an important step towards of our commitment to ensure compliance, demonstrate competency, knowledge and of course passion in everything we do!
Both Active and Passive Systems need to come together. Understanding these and ensuring our clients are aware and compliance is an ABSOLUTE must.
