Its worrying news that the recent 2019 Fire Door Inspection Scheme survey that included 2700 buildings has found that over three quarters of fire door installations are not fit for purpose. They conclude that 30% were condemned due to poor installation issues including excessive gaps around the door and use of incompatible foam.

Over 57% required small scale maintenance -
