Contracts Manager Dean Bradford is the first of the Mila Maintenance team to undertake formal Fire Door installation training at BM Trada.
The company’s attendance is in response to increasing requests from existing clients to help them with the installation of fire doors as a part of the specialist works which Mila Maintenance already carries out for them.
Speaking about the course Dean commented “The BM Trada Q Mark is well recognised across the industry, and for such a specialist thing as the installation of fire doors it was important we attended such a well-recognised course”.
“Our clients are increasingly asking us to support them with the installation of fire doors and we want to be in a position to do so with full knowledge of the subject. The course was excellent – taking us from the very first steps of identifying the component parts of a fire door all the way through to the final installation and checking of it to ensure that it is correct in every way to ensure compliance”.
“It was a really informative and helpful couple of days, and when they set alight a door which was not fully compliant then you start to realise just how important correct specification and installation is”.
Managing Director Tristan Cooke reinforced the point “Installing fire doors is another specialist skill – it is not something any installer can undertake and underpins once again the importance for clients to engage with specialist contractors rather than MSO’s”.
“The implications of not understanding the make-up of a fire door, or how to install it correctly are huge and we are delighted we have undertaken this initiative”.
“We are increasingly being asked by our clients to support them with the installation of these specialist products and we are committed to doing so”.
