As everyone knows, the BBC is a vast organisation and it will come as no surprise to anyone that when their offices underwent a recent overhaul that dozens of modern fire doors needed to be installed.
We were delighted to win the bid to supply and fit the fire doors across different parts of the building.
Following the Government’s Building Regulations and our own industry certification guidelines, our team of experienced fire door fitters installed a series of doors to comply with all fire safety rules.
Fire doors save lives and as hundreds of employees work for the BBC, we were happy to install the doors to help protect them all in the event of a blaze.
The building is separated into a number of different sections, reflecting the different areas of work produced by the Corporation, so strict rules had to be followed in relation to the location of the fire doors.
We fitted fire doors in a variety of locations to block the potential spread of fire between different areas.
Regulations also stipulate the fire resistance levels of the doors we installed – typically 30 minutes – and the material we used to fire stop the gaps between the doors and their surrounds.
Our accredited team of fire door fitters worked alongside those within the organisation responsible for fire safety precautions to supply the optimum level of protection.
RP Carpentry MD Roger O’Gorman said: ‘The BBC is a massive organisation, well known by every household in the country, so it was a huge privilege for us to be asked to supply and install all their new fire doors.
‘As accredited fire door installers, we are able to undertake such big projects as contractors and clients know that all our work will comply with all industry safety standards. It’s a legal requirement that fire doors have to be fitted by certified fire door installers and our experience and expertise puts us in an excellent position to win such prestigious contracts.’
