Following the original development of its compliance technology for gas servicing in social housing, Gas Tag has launched Fire Door to cover fire safety compliance.
Fire Door is an extension of Gas Tag’s existing technology. A physical tag is placed in a property and tracks all of the fire door inspections and servicing work. This data is then fed into an online portal for landlords to monitor.
Evidence published in the first report of the Grenfell Enquiry revealed that ineffective fire doors allowed, “smoke and toxic gases to spread through the building more quickly than should have been possible.” This has led to The Rt Hon Sir Martin Moore-Bick to recommend that managers should carry out inspections on fire doors at least every three months.
Peter Luke, commercial director, Gas Tag, said, “Gas Tag aims to standardise gas servicing workflows through our mobile app. We’ve replicated this approach with Fire Door, creating a process that will prompt inspectors to follow best practice, answer relevant inspection questions and take photographic evidence of the door.
“All of this information will be sent in real-time to the housing provider’s portal and stored, giving them full visibility on the condition of their fire doors and the ability to carry out desktop audits.”
