Closing the Door to Fire

Origin are the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium doors and windows. Established in 2002 by cousins who recognised a gap in the UK market for high quality bi-folding doors, Origin have built a reputation based on flawless design combined with functionality, and have since expanded the range to include front doors, sliding doors and windows. As a family run business, Origin are now expanding globally in the US and Dubai.

Origin’s roots within High Wycombe has led to business growth and expansion over the years, and have properties in the local area that provide manufacturing and showroom bases to serve trade and industry.

Surefire are proud to support Origin with comprehensive fire protection service and maintenance for all of their properties, including fire alarm and fire extinguishers. As part of the package, Surefire also assist Origin with the completion of their fire risk assessments.

Fire Risk Assessments are required to comply with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. An experienced and competent assessor conducted an assessment in each of the Origin properties. Reports are all uploaded onto a live and interactive online platform which provides a complete audit trail and history for each property. All assessments can be viewed by multiple users with access to a live fire log book to record fire maintenance checks. Easy to understand action plans and audit trails ensure users never miss a deadline with an overall Risk Monitor dashboard.

Paul Rosner, Operational Risk at Origin explains “The health and safety of our personnel and buildings are of paramount importance, so it made sense for us to look to Surefire for help with our fire risk assessment responsibilities. The booking process was seamless, with flexibility around our site access times and dates. The easy to use online platform has allowed us instant access to our documentation and information to make sure that we comply with fire legislation as a business”.
