Metal Staircase & Fire Escape Surveys

Expertly undertaken in London, the South and East of England and Midlands

Knowing that your staircase, fire escape or fixed ladder is in a safe and sound condition gives you peace of mind and the assurance you comply with current regulations. (Outline below.)

That’s why we recommend having them examined by an experienced surveyor, who will provide you with a detailed report, including recommendations for further action, and quotes for repairs. Done properly, this is time consuming work so we charge for our surveys. But the cost is more than out-weighed by the benefits. Having a detailed report means you have a clear record of the condition of your staircase or fire escape/s and a clear understanding of any work that needs to be done, when without it this could be a grey area. We regularly carry out this work for a everyone from private individuals and landlords to the facilities managers in charge of schools, offices, hotels and large business sites.

If you would like us to provide you with a quote for a survey, fill in our Quick Enquiry form letting us know the type, number and location of your staircase/s, fire escape/s or fixed ladder/s and we’ll reply back soon.

Regulations and guidelines

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005

This states that those who have a degree of control over premises, or certain areas of them,can be designated as the ‘responsible person’ and that this could be the owner, agent, employee or occupier. This person is then responsible for having a suitable system of maintenance in respect of facilities, equipment and devices provided in connection with general fire precautions and ensuring that they are maintained “in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair.”

BS 8219:2012 British Standard Guide to Building Maintenance Management

This recommends that general, visual inspections of the main elements of a building are carried out annually and full inspections are carried out at intervals of no more than five years. Reports should highlight the degree of urgency needed to carry out repairs, and ensure that postponing apparently non-urgent work doesn’t result in a major defect or failure over the longer term.’The resulting information should be arranged in three categories: those matters requiring immediate attention, those that could be placed into a planned maintenance programme and those which could be postponed but which should be monitored and reviewed.’
