New Fire Door Installer Register

Published:  29 October, 2013

A new register of qualified fire door installers is being put together, in the wake of last month’s highly successful Fire Door Safety Week campaign by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), BWF-CERTIFIRE Scheme and Fire Door Inspector Scheme.

The Fire Door Installer Register is a new industry-led initiative backed by some of the UK’s leading fire door experts, associations and organisations. It aims to bring greater recognition to professional fire door installers and to help building owners who need installation services to find qualified and certified people they can trust.

Iain McIlwee, BWF’s chief executive, said: “Our intention with the Fire Door Installer Register is to close any gaps in the supply chain, so that we can ensure that every building owner, estates or facilities manager can access third-party-certificated fire doors and doorsets, and have them installed by properly qualified professionals.”

Any installation company with certification from BM TRADA Certification, FIRAS or IFC is eligible to join the register for free, by recording their certification details at www.firedoorinstallers.co.uk. The register will then be promoted to building owners from early next year.
