Legislation

Individuals responsible for buildings have a legal obligation under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to ensure that fire doorsets retain the ability to resist the passage of fire throughout their planned service. A fire door that is fitted incorrectly is none compliant, risking life, invalidating insurance and potentially inviting prosecution or significant fines.

To comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, fire door installation and maintenance is a key requirement for every business and establishment to which the order applies.

A fully functioning, compliant and correctly maintained fire door assembly will help prevent the spread of fire and smoke between separate compartments of a structure thus protecting lives and built assets.

Cadgrange holds B M TRADA Q-Mark third-party certification for the manufacture of timber-based fire and enhanced security doorsets. (provisional membership status whilst awaiting BM TRADA audit). This certification provides the reassurance that the Cadgrange manufactured product is consistently produced to the same specification and quality as that originally tested.

The Cadgrange Fire Door Manufacturing service perfectly dovetails into the three other Fundamental Disciplines of Fire Door Installation, Inspection and Maintenance to provide clients with a comprehensive, one point of contact, fit for purpose, fire door safety plan for the long term.

The passive fire protection Industry’s expectation is that the UK Government will make it mandatory for passive life-saving building products to be UKAS accredited third party certified for Manufacture, Installation & Maintenance, within the next 2-3 years.Our recognition and support for such a quality and safety step change is reflected in our advanced capital investment commitment for introducing the industry-exclusive “golden thread” services program of Q-Mark Certified Fire Door Installation, Inspection, Maintenance & Manufacture.
