Fire Door Installation

Checkmate specialises in the installation of fire doors and frames. Providing services primarily to occupied buildings, but also key new building projects, we are experts in the management of internal timber doors, front entrance door-sets and emergency doors.

With thousands of doors remediated, replaced and inspected, we are proficient in the supply of our services across many sectors, including student accommodation, healthcare, social housing, commercial and high-rise residential buildings.

Third Party Accreditation

Committed to ensuring full building compliance, all of our fire door works are certified through third party accreditation under the BRE/LPCB scheme LPS1271 and LPS1197 or BM TRADA Q-Mark Fire Door Installation/Maintenance scheme.

The Importance of Fire Doors

The key to passive fire protection is to contain the fire in a particular compartment or room, giving occupants enough time to escape and the fire service enough time to enter the building and tackle the fire. Designed to prevent the fire or smoke from spreading, a fire door is one of the most important fire safety products on your premises.

However, due to the nature of fire doors being used in a functional way on a regular basis, they are at greater risk of damage and abuse, seriously compromising the fire protection in your building. This is why it's key to ensure regular inspections and remediation, preventing the need for replacement, and more importantly, ensuring your buildings remain compliant.

Fire Door Installation

When it’s not possible to fix a fire door, because damage to its integrity is so severe, or the fire performance certification may limit the scope for alterations, Checkmate's expert installers are on hand.

Fire door installers are skilled joiners that hold BRE LPCB / BM TRADA Q mark qualifications in the installation of new fire doorsets or fixes to existing fire doors. They follow manufacturer’s installation guidance, global assessments, industry-accepted guidance, and fire door codes of practice to ensure a compliant installation.

Offering a full turnkey compliance service, from survey through to supply, installation and maintenance, our clients can be assured that all fire doors are installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s fixing instructions and test evidence, to ensure that they perform as intended in a fire situation.

With over 30 years' multi-sector experience, Checkmate can provide fire door services to 'severe usage' locations, such as cross corridors and stairwells or NHS hospitals, which may require a higher specification than light-duty doors.
