Who should inspect the fire doorset?

Inspections of all fire doorsets should be undertaken by a competent person. Inspection should also include the door closer, checking that the door leaf closes and latches from every angle, the variable speed of the door closer is adjusted to ensure safe operation and the door closer has been adjusted to ensure that the appropriate opening and closing forces have been achieved.

In high-traffic areas, such as common areas, corridors, and stairwells it is recommended that doorsets may require more frequent inspection, to identify any wear and tear or product damage.

Inspection and maintenance works should be documented to record the product history.
