Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to ensuring that your fire doors meet all necessary safety standards, providing you with peace of mind and a secure environment.

Why Fire Door Inspections are Essential

Fire doors are a critical component of any building’s fire safety strategy. They are designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke, giving occupants vital time to evacuate safely. Regular inspections are essential to ensure that these doors function correctly and comply with the latest safety regulations.

Our Inspection Process

Our fire door inspection and certification service includes a thorough assessment of each door to check for:

  • Proper installation
  • Correct signage
  • Functional hardware such as hinges, locks, and seals
  • Structural integrity and damage
  • Compliance with fire safety standards

Each inspection is meticulously documented, and we provide a detailed report highlighting any areas of concern and recommended actions.

“Southwood completed our extension and kitchen, and we couldn’t have been happier.

Lee kept us informed of everything that was going on during the entire project to minimise any impact on us whilst we lived in the house during the build.

We would 100% recommend Lee and his team for any extension and renovation works.”
