FireDNA Digitally Monitors Fire Doors And Passive Fire Products


With the new Fire Safety Regulations having been in force for a couple of months, Contractors, Fire Door Inspectors and Building Owners see the real benefit in using FireDNA.

FireDNA is cloud-based Software and a Mobile App that has been developed for everyone involved in Passive Fire Product Manufacture, Installation, Inspection, Management and Maintenance. As well as for those that live and work within environments where passive fire products are installed, and have a crucial role to play in fire safety and prevention.

FireDNA software catalogues Manufacturers product data, digitally shares it with Contractors and Installers, who in turn add their installation data, passing that onto Building Owners, Facilities Management Teams and Tenant Management Organisations.

That data can then be used by Building Control, Maintenance Teams, Fire Inspectors and viewed by Tenants and Residents alike, with a simple swipe of a smartphone or mobile device.

Building Owners And/Or The 'Responsible Persons'

Our software enables Building Owners, Facilities Managers and Tenant Management Organisations to save considerable time and money on their compliance reporting. They are able to organise quarterly and annual inspections and have the results immediately accessible to digitally share with interested third parties and stakeholders.

London City Island, Leamouth Peninsula, - courtesy of Ballymore The FireDNA Software and Mobile App has recently been deployed by asset management firm BAML* to inspect and monitor 25,000 Fire Doors across 10 of its large London developments including Embassy Gardens in Nine Elms, Wardian London’s iconic two towers in Canary Wharf, Royal Wharf in the Royal Docks area and the Brentford town centre regeneration project adjacent to the River Brent.

With the new Regulation 10 having come into force on the 23rd January, owners of buildings over 11 metres are required to carry out quarterly checks and annual inspections on all fire doors. Following a demonstration of our software, BAML immediately saw the benefits FireDNA delivers, not only through the time and cost savings, but also in the ease of use and accessibility of the data.

Fire Door Inspectors

FireDNA Fire Door inspection

For qualified Inspectors FireDNA has shown it can half the time in carrying out surveys and inspections of Fire Doors and Doorsets compared with their existing methods. In addition, it also negates the need for time intensive paperwork and has shown to save significant time (up to 70%) in creating inspection reports and remedial costing documentation.

On a recent project undertaken on behalf of Mitie for the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service our software was used. The project included inspection and reporting on 9422 fire doors, across 357 sites, within 547 buildings. As a result, FireDNA was instrumental in bringing the project in on time and within budget.
