However, a doorset's fire resistance capabilities can be seriously compromised if it is not maintained by an individual who has appropriate knowledge of this complex life safety product. Q-Mark certified Fire Door Maintainers provide the reassurance that they are suitably qualified to carry out the maintenance work to a standard that will allow the product to continue to perform as required.
A classroom seminar and written examination forming the 2nd part of the Q-Mark fire door maintenance certification scheme training programme. Successful completion of this course is one of the mandatory requirements of being awarded Q-Mark's certification.
