These assets must then receive rigorous regular testing and maintenance, ensuring compliance with the latest industry regulations.

PTSG employs LPCB, BM TRADA and Firas certified experts who specialise in the inspection and remediation of internal timber doors and front entrance door-sets. Its certified technicians provide assurance that every aspect of a building’s fire doors is functioning in accordance with fire regulations.
