All of our fire door inspectors hold the FDIS (Dip) diploma by qualification, which is part of our quality management system (QMS).

All our fire door assessors are, highly trained,  experienced,  and have many years in the industry a number also have experiences  brought from their previous employment in the Fire Service as operation and fire safety officers, so they understand fully the benefits and requirements of a well installed fire door. 

Our assessors have received comprehensive training, and have a wealth of knowledge within the fire door industry. Their training includes on site supervision, identifying a range of common issues on installations undertaken by non-competent installers.

The syllabus also covers, the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (fire safety) Order 2005 (RRO) and The Fire Safety Act 2021, including all guidance documents and codes of practice, building regulation requirements and information supplied by the British woodworking federation (BWF).

With receiving this training and gaining vocational knowledge and practical experience, all our fire door assessors gain technical and practical competencies, in fire door compliance requirements.

With the knowledge gained during their training, the assessors are able to identify exactly where fire doors are needed,  in a premise and  taking into account the buildings fire risk assessment, fire strategy (if available) and emergency fire evacuation plan. This allows the assessor to ensure that there is no ‘over provision’.

Once completed, the fire door report together with the detailed quotation, is produced for the customer. The report also identifies whether doors require maintenance or replacement, therefore keeping costs down wherever possible.

If Premier Fire Doors are then instructed to carry the work out and following completion, a certificate of conformity is issued, for both the compliance standard of the doors and frames and as importantly the quality of the installation. This also includes photographic evidence of the installation before, during and after, so there is a very detailed audit trail available post installation.
