Why have your fire escape or emergency exit serviced?
The purpose of an emergency exit in a building is a special exit for emergencies such as a fire: the combined use of regular and special exits allows for faster evacuation, while it also provides an alternative if the route to the regular exit is blocked by fire, etc.
For compliance to BS9999, fire escapes should be serviced and inspected every 6 months.
This may also be a stipulation of your building insurance, your lease agreement or part of your Fire risk assessment for your fire exits to be maintained.
When carrying out a service we have a specific schedule of works which includes adjustments and minor repairs. This may be to adjust the closing speed if a door closer such as a transom, overhead or concealed type is fitted.
It is also important to test and check the operation as there are maximum forces to open these types of doors, so all engineers carry force gauges on their vans for this purpose.
We documented our findings on our Risk Assessment Checklist for each door so you have a record and documented evidence as this may form part of their fire risk assessment.
Any repairs or defects which could not be rectified at the service were provided by means of a separate quotation per door to allow you to put a plan in place for the repairs and spread the cost.
We provide service contracts and preventative maintenance on a range of manufacturers equipment. From a one-off service to 3-year fixed cost contract, call us on 0808 1200911 to discuss your requirements.
