Fire Door Maintenance in Buildings under 1 year old

Assuming the doors are timber-based, BS 8214: 2016 Timber-based Fire Door Assemblies - Code of practice section 13 recognises that doors "do deteriorate" and says that "It is important, therefore, for inspection, maintenance and repair of any damage be undertaken on a regular basis if the fire resistance is to be maintained".

The older versions of the standard used to refer to 6 monthly, but as Neil states the current version has shied away from giving advice on intervals and in effect is based on the risk.

Inspection differs of course - there are user level competence checks of the more basic aspects of a doorset which may be expected to be part of general in house fire safety inspections which are often weekly or monthly and then the more thorough time consuming checks by competent specialists which can vary from 3 - 12 monthly.
