Certified Fire Door Installation: Third-Party Accreditation

We prioritise the safety and compliance of every building we work on, which is why we’re proud to offer fire door installations that are certified through third-party accreditation.

When it comes to fire door installations, we hold certifications under reputable third-party schemes such as the BRE/LPCB scheme LPS1271 and LPS1197 or the BM TRADA Q-Mark Fire Door Installation/Maintenance scheme. These certifications demonstrate our dedication to delivering high-quality fire door works that meet the stringent requirements set forth by independent accrediting bodies.

When it comes to fire safety, there’s no room for compromise. That’s why we go the extra mile to ensure that our fire door works are certified through third-party accreditation, providing our clients with confidence in the reliability and effectiveness of our installations.

The Importance of Fire Doors

Fire doors play a crucial role in mitigating the effects of fires. The specialised design of a fire door make them resistant to the spread of fire and smoke, providing essential compartments that contain fire within a specific area.

Through their fire resistant properties, self closing mechanisms and intumescent seals, fire doors also minimise the amount of damage due to their design. By confining the fire to its origin, fire doors limit the destruction and help preserve valuable assets, along with protecting lives.

Remediation or Fire Door Replacement?

At Checkmate, we always prioritise repair over replacement and over the last 5 years, we have remediated 60% of all fire doors - only installing new ones when necessary.

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.
