Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS) is a UK-based organization dedicated to fire door safety. I’ve hard US fire door inspectors say that a very large percentage of fire doors they inspect are not code-compliant, and now FDIS has published data about the inspections that took place in the UK in 2019. For over 10 years, US enforcement of the fire door inspection requirements has been slowly gaining momentum, which will lead to increased safety for building occupants. I think sharing this sort of information about the condition of existing fire doors will help encourage greater focus on this important part of a building’s passive fire protection system.
What do you think? Are any fire door inspectors willing to share this information publicly?
