Fire doors are one of the most important elements in giving occupants time to safely evacuate a building whilst minimising damage and safeguarding lives. An effective and essential containment measure, fire doors function to slow down the spread of a fire by limiting the supply of oxygen to a fire and preventing a fire from reaching potential fuel sources, all whilst protecting vital escape routes from flames, gases, and smoke. As such a crucial feature in many buildings, it is important that they are installed correctly and compliantly, maintained, and managed effectively and knowledge of how to achieve this can be built through a range of available fire door installation training courses.


What is fire door installation training?

New UK legislation, introduced steadily over the past few years, has clear and detailed standards on how fire doors are installed and maintained.

There are nationally assured or certified courses available, teaching delegates how to appropriately install, inspect and maintain fire doors. The training courses are specifically designed for industry professionals and provide the theory, and in some cases hands-on practical knowledge in fire door installation.


Who should attend fire door awareness and installation training?

Any individual who has been designated the ‘appointed responsible person’ for a building should be fully trained in fire door awareness, which includes having a clear and up-to-date understanding of all fire door regulations and standards.

Similarly, any professional who installs, inspects or maintains fire doors also needs to have completed the relevant training to a similar level.
