Fire doors are often ignored and misunderstood at properties, but have become progressively more important over time. In short, they’re designed to help stop fire and smoke passing through a building for at least 30 minutes, something that is critical to stop a fire spreading at a property whilst, for example, the emergency services attend, preventing further harm to both people and property.
We have a resource here on some of the nuts-and-bolts of checking these which is one of the action points of ongoing property management services. Once they have been correctly installed or assessed, then it’s important to make periodic checks that these still do what they say on the tin - be a door to stop fire (and smoke) getting past.
