Common issues and problems for fire escapes which need repairing are:

 

  • Fire risk assessment report highlighting problems with fire doors
  • Closing too fast
  • Catching on the floor
  • Cannot open or not closing
  • Intumescent seals damaged or not present
  • Hinges worn and noisy
  • Not closing and relocking
  • Difficult to open
  • Vision panel glass loose

The common issues with fire exits are generally caused by lack use as generally they only are tested weekly or generally used in an emergency. There are also some which are used constantly as a means to enter a building so the components will be subject to greater wear and tear.

It is critical that these doorsets are always kept in optimum condition as BS8300 and BS8214 states that manual fire exit doors should be examined twice a year with specific attention paid to panic bars, paddle handles, hinges, pivots and door closing mechanisms.

Our experienced engineers have been trained on the major manufacturers equipment and are backed up with spare parts accounts to be able to repair your fire exits. Our fixed rate call out includes all costs and the 1st hour on site, as we understand that if your door fails it will cause inconvenience and potential loss of business.

We also offer service contract agreements which include preventative maintenance to give you piece of mind at the fraction of the cost of a major component failure to keep your business operational and compliant.

If you have a problem with your fire exit or emergency escape door,
then call 0808 1200911 or request an engineer here.

My fire escape door is difficult to lock, can you help?
Yes of course, many issues with locks are not a problem with the lock it is the fact that the door is not aligned correctly. This means that the latch or hook lock cannot go into the keep easily which means you will require more force on your key. In extreme cases the key will snap and you could be left in an unsecure condition where you cannot lock or unlock your building.

If you are experiencing this call us now as it could be a simple realignment of your door will rectify this.

Can you fix my door on a call out?
We offer a fixed call out rate which includes the first hour on site as generally we either repair within that time or it will require additional works / spare parts to which we will provide a quotation.

Common spare parts are on our engineer’s vans specifically for Fire escape doors, aluminium doors including pivots, hinges and closers.
