Three quarters of fire doors fail inspections according to FDIS

A UK fire door inspection organisation has warned of a “tragedy waiting to happen” after it revealed three quarters of the fire doors inspected in the UK by its approved inspectors did not meet the required standard.

The Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS)’s data, based on more than 100,000 fire door inspections carried out by its approved inspectors in 2021, found that 75% of fire doors failed to meet the required standards, putting lives at risk in the event of a fire.

In 2019, FDIS found that 76% of the fire doors it inspected were condemned as not fit for purpose, indicating that there has not been much improvement since its previous inspection data. Read the full article here.
