About This Fire Door Installation Training Course

This Fire Door Installation Training course offers guidance on the full installation procedure. It helps users complete installations without issue and ensure all fire doors are effective, compliant and properly documented.

Why Is This Course Important?

Fire doors must be correctly installed on all premises subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. They are essential to a building’s passive fire protection, limiting the spread of flames and smoke to minimise property damage and safeguard escape routes. This effect gives occupants the best possible chance of evacuation and allows firefighters faster access, increasing the likelihood of them saving the building.

Fire doors must be installed effectively and in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. The installer must also provide the building’s responsible person with documentation of their work and a fire door certificate.

Fire Door Installation Training offers guidance on every stage of the installation. It covers fire door standards and regulations to help users understand how they work and why they are necessary. It also covers the full installation process, from planning up to the final sign-off and handover to clients.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Under the Building Regulations 2010, every new public building, workplace, venue and multi-residency building requires sound, working fire doors to be installed.

For existing buildings, installers must ensure existing fire doors meet the required standards of performance.

To comply with regulations, fire doors must:

  • Protect escape routes
  • Stop the internal spread of fire
  • Provide access for the emergency services
  • Meet standards for materials, resistance, sizing and location

Installers must also record their work and give clients certification. These requirements are part of fire safety reforms resulting from the Grenfell tragedy.

This fire door installation training course offers guidance on all current regulations and how to ensure installations are compliant.
