Fire Door Maintenance Scheme

A new ‘Q-Mark’ scheme for fire door maintenance has been launched by BM Trada.

The Q-Mark Fire Door Maintenance scheme is designed to complement BM Trada’s Fire Door Manufacturer and Fire Door Registered Installer schemes.

The requirements of the maintenance scheme include initial training – incorporating additional installation and maintenance modules – followed by a written exam; initial audit; and ongoing surveillance audits.

Accepted repair techniques are a key part of the scheme, explains BM Trada, allowing maintainers to repair moderate damage with traceability back to supporting evidence.

Commenting on the new scheme, Simon Beer, product certification manager at BM Trada Certification, said:

“Previously we have operated an installation scheme that demonstrates competence to install. This new scheme now helps to ensure that the ongoing performance of a doorset is maintained after the initial installation.

“Together with the Fire Door Manufacturer scheme and Fire Door Registered Installer scheme, the specifier can now be confident that the product, its installation and on-going maintenance are all covered by Q-Mark third party certification.” Source: Info4Fire
