Anyone looking to ensure that they comply with the ‘law and fire doors’ should head to the BWF-Certifire Fire Door Scheme stand to take advantage of the wealth of expertise that the Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS) is providing at Firex 2014. 

This is particularly relevant now following the raft of prosecutions under the Fire Safety Order which are driving building operators to seek help from FDIS certificated fire door inspectors.

  • Property managers, estates managers and fire risk assessors will be able to consult with Certificated Fire Door Inspectors who possess the highest available qualifications.
  • Fire safety professionals can enter a competition to test their knowledge and awareness of fire door issues and be in with a chance of winning a free place on the Diploma in Fire Doors course, an essential qualification for people working with fire doors and worth up to £600.
  • There will be a miniature fire door assembly available to demonstrate the range of issues that can impact on the ability of a fire door to compartmentalise fire and smoke, so that visitors can broaden their fire door knowledge and stay the right side of the law.
  • Theodore Firedoor, star of social media, collector and sharer of dodgy fire door photos, will be screening his latest videos showing the good, the bad and the downright ugly in fire door installations.

Neil Ashdown, FDIS general manager, said:

“When FDIS was launched two years ago, one of its aims was to be a portal to fire door know-how.  As the scheme grows, with more and more people passing the FDIS diploma and achieving Certificated Fire Door Inspector status, we are moving ever closer to that vision by providing information and competent persons across the UK, so that knowledge about the critical role of fire doors and how they can save lives and protect property is gradually being transformed.”
