  1. My question here is not related to the condition of existing fire doors, its related to the verification of existing doors within a building. I work with schools a lot and they have a habit of placing Fire Door signs on every door in the school and as such a lot of them are not or never have been acting as fire doors and as such not all the doors carrying signage need to be maintained. I have approached a few FRA companies, who seem to shy away from specifics stating, they are there to assess risk only and don't want to de classify fire doors on a site. My two questions are; Is there a specific company that I can use based in the SE of the UK to undertake this work Are there any certificated training courses covering this, also training for issue of a compartmentation plan or drawing The course I have looked up seem to be building and construction based. Thank you
  2. Could someone please clarify when a Fire Risk Assessment is a requirement with regard to small commercial premises, mainly high street shops. I am aware of the 5 employees or more rule, but does this change if the business, for example Has a gas supply? Is cooking hot food and has say 30 paying customers? If the premises is on the ground floor level only? If some have a sub basement, often used to store a variety of goods? If the premises does not have a fire alarm system fitted. Thank you
  3. By signage I was referring to 'Fire Door Keep Locked Shut' signs. The FRA which the client has had completed, doesn't refer to each individual door
  4. Morning Could someone please confirm if existing store room doors require just signage, or should they be compliant with regard gaps, strips, seals and closers as per the main fire doors. Thank you
