the inspection of Smoke Doors
Smoke doors are designed to prevent smoke from a fire spreading throughout a building and causing potential dangers. Under different building codes and regulations, they are required in the construction of buildings and once installed will keep escape routes free of smoke, allowing for the safe evacuation of occupants to take place.
These specialist doors are crucial in high traffic environments such as schools, hotels, department stores and office buildings. With smoke being a major hazard caused by fire, and often claiming more lives that the fire itself, the inspection of smoke doors to ensure that they are fit for purpose is vital.
Our team of qualified engineers at EA-RS Passive Fire Protection have experience of working with the latest technology in passive fire protection, and will be able to sync smoke doors with smoke detectors where possible. This means that as soon as the detector goes off, the smoke doors will be automatically activated.
We understand the importance of safety when it comes to any building, and keeping employees, visitors and the public out of harm’s way is a main priority for any building owner. This is why we take the inspection of smoke doors seriously and leave no door unchecked on our watch.
We offer a comprehensive smoke door survey and reporting procedure for existing buildings and also provide planning and design packages for new projects to make sure your smoke doors meet the required standards and legal obligations. If you would like to find out more please contact us now.
