The Importance of Repairing Your Fire Door

August 31, 2023 Steve Sherbourne

When it comes to fire safety in buildings, one crucial element often overlooked is the maintenance and repair of fire doors. These doors are designed to slow the spread of fire and smoke, providing valuable time for occupants to evacuate safely. However, they can only fulfil their purpose if they are in good working condition. In this article, we’ll explore the significance of maintaining and repairing fire doors and introduce you to Windrush Doors & Windows’ specialised fire door repair service.

1. Life-Saving Functionality

Fire doors are a critical component of any building’s fire protection system. They act as barriers, preventing the rapid spread of fire and smoke from one area to another. In the event of a fire, a properly functioning fire door can mean the difference between life and death. When a fire door is damaged or not working correctly, it compromises the safety of everyone in the building.

2. Legal Requirements

In many countries, including the UK, there are strict regulations and legal requirements governing fire safety in commercial and residential buildings. Ensuring that fire doors are properly maintained and in good repair is often a legal obligation. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines, legal action, or even the closure of the building.

3. Property Protection

Fire damage not only endangers lives but also leads to extensive property damage. A well-maintained fire door can help contain the fire to a specific area, minimising property damage and reducing repair and restoration costs. Neglecting fire door maintenance can result in more extensive damage and financial loss in the event of a fire.

4. Peace of Mind

Knowing that your fire doors are in excellent condition provides peace of mind for building owners, managers, and occupants. It ensures that the building’s fire safety measures are effective and that everyone is better protected in case of an emergency.

This June Windrush installed 39 Pvcu windows to our student accommodation block at Rewley Abbey Court. The work required them to install the windows while residents were in occupation, some with young children. Windrush carried out a full risk and method statement and appraisal to carry out the works in a safe manner with multi-occupation to consider. Full scaffolding and access booms were used with everything being alarmed and fenced off with appropriate signage in place. The Windrush team involved had all the necessary accreditation holding CSCS cards, asbestos awareness trained, CRB checked etc. The windows were as per our requested specification with Windrush being the most competitive out of the competition. The College are very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and will be using Windrush on our future projects.

Windrush have installed new pvcu patio doors in the residents homes on site. The window installers being friendly and polite and having a nice demeanour and getting on well with the residents. The work was carried out in a professional manor with their work being clean and tidy all with an insurance baked guarantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I would just like to say that I was very impressed by the two young men who came to do the windows yesterday, they were very efficient, had impeccable manners and they cleared up after themselves which was a joy.

Windrush serviced two Velux windows and re-glazed with new sealed units, re-glazed a bedroom window with three sealed units, and re-glazed a conservatory upgrading sealed units to “Low E Argon” gas and thermal bar

During the School holidays the Windrush team carried out window adaption works for the School. Windrush installed remote window winding equipment to our high level windows that have been a health and safety issue with pupils and staff standing on chairs to open. I can recommend Windrush for their professional approach, competitive pricing and ability to accommodate our requirements during a busy time with many other trades on site. They were willing to change their work schedule to accommodate changing circumstances on site.
