Demonstrate competence in the maintenance of fire doors.
There is a legal requirement for manufacturers of fire doors to demonstrate the ability of their products to resist the passage and spread of fire. However, if they are not properly maintained, their fire resistance capabilities can be seriously compromised. The Q-Mark Fire Door Maintenance scheme has been designed to provide reassurance to specifiers, contractors and end users that the product they have chosen has been maintained correctly and that it should perform as intended.
The BM TRADA Q-Mark Fire Door Maintenance scheme is based on training an individual who takes responsibility for the training and work carried out by a number of operatives. The scheme is designed to ensure that fire doorsets are being maintained correctly, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions or appropriate guidelines.
What the scheme aims to achieve:
- raise the on-going standard of maintenance of fire doors
- ensure the product’s fire resistance capabilities are maintained
- ensure the product’s service life is maximized through correct maintenance
- provide peace of mind that the maintainer is suitably qualified and that their work is continually assessed by an independent body
- provide specifiers with the means to demonstrate that the maintenance meets the required standard.
