1)Fire Door Not Closing?
Fire doors may not close for a number of reasons so we have complied a list below to identify the main causes.
1a)Faulty Fire Door Closing Mechanisms
Faulty door closers are the most common reason for fire doors not closing.Once the door closer has lost its power it will fail to close the door.The hydraulic closer may start to leak oil and this is not fixable so you will need to replace the fire door closer.
Fire regulations should be adhered to and its important to check these before any replacements take place.Fire officers should be contacted if you are in any doubt.Please see our door closer page for details.

1b)Faulty Fire Door Hinges
Hinges may be faulty due to excessive wear or poor fitting.In each case the door may drop causing it to drag and not close correctly.If the fire door has not closed completely this will affect the fire seal.Any fire will then spread far more quickly due to this.
We repair fire door hinges and can fit replacement fire door hinges if necessary.Ensuring they confirm with the fire regulations for that building.

1c)Faulty Fire Door Locking Mechanisms & Exit Devices
There are various types of locks for fire doors.Most popular are exit devices or more commonly known as panic bars.These will have a push bar that operates the lock when pushed.This enables people to exit without the use of a key whilst still keeping the premises secure from the outside.The outside exit device can be locked with a key from the outside thus preventing people gaining access.
If the panic bars have been installed incorrectly or have become faulty,then the door will not close into the locked position.Its vital that the door locks to prevent unauthorised entry and more importantly contain any fires
