Certificated Fire Door Inspections offer lucrative business opportunity

Jody Purcell has worked in and around the door industry for several years. When he made the decision to set up his own business he looked for a niche area in which he was knowledgeable and well connected and had potential for growth.

His research quickly revealed that awareness of the need for fire door inspections was growing markedly amongst London-based property owners, architects and construction contractors. But it seemed there was no one offering certificated inspections in the capital.

So he established a new company that would specialise in providing such a service and DoorView was the result. Now offering certificated inspections to building owners and estates managers in hotels, hospitals, local authorities and other sectors, DoorView is backing its service with consultancy advice that helps people understand their responsibilities as well as the implications of how they specify, install and maintain their fire doors.

Jody comments: “Whilst awareness of fire door responsibilities is increasing there is still a long way to go before all those who should be educated on the issues are up to speed. My business is all about helping these people ensure that their fire doors are able to save lives and protect property in the event of a fire.”
