Understanding the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 + its implication for fire doors


Lorient has been designing and manufacturing high performance sealing systems for over 40 years. Their intumescent seals are a vital part of a fire door assembly, helping to defend buildings against the spread of fire. Their smoke seals restrict smoke movement around a building – giving people time to escape, and reducing property damage.

Lorient has built a strong reputation for design innovation; and for producing the highest quality sealing systems embracing acoustic, smoke, fire and thermal containment; as well as accessibility. Respected throughout the industry for their technical expertise, they play an active role in helping to shape standards and best practice.

Understanding the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 + its implication for fire doors.

How well do you know the RRO? Lorient’s RIBA accredited CPD covers the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and its implication for fire doors.

There have been 560 prosecutions in England and Wales under the RRO (2006 – 2018), ranging from large well-known companies such as New Look who were fined £536,000, to small family run businesses who have also been targeted. The RRO shifts the blame to the ‘responsible person’ of that building; meaning anyone can be prosecuted under the act for lack of fire safety.

The CPD covers:

  • Introduction to the RRO & the responsible person
  • Examples of companies who have been prosecuted under the RRO
  • The danger of fire & smoke
  • The importance of fire doors, including installation & maintenance
  • Examples of poorly maintained & fitted fire doors with cost-effective solutions
