Fire Door Inspections & Labeling
Enhance the lives of people by improving the safety, security, convenience and aesthetics of the buildings where they live, work and play
Standards set forth by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) require building owners and managers to have all types of fire and smoke-rated doors inspected and tested at least annually, and have a written record available. Here is how the experts at DH Pace can help!
The FireCheck® program for fire-rated swinging doors.
Under the FireCheck® program, a certified inspector conducts a comprehensive visual inspection and functional test, per NFPA 80 requirements, to ensure code compliance. A report complete with photographs documents any deficiencies and includes repair recommendations. Many customers find this service helpful in preparing for compliance audits, especially in the health care environment. This same process can be applied to smoke-rated swinging doors if mandated by the code or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
Fire Door Drop Test Program
The Fire Door Drop Test (FDDT) program for fire-rated rolling doors, counter doors, shutters, accordion doors, sliding doors and fire curtains includes a code-mandated inspection that follows testing procedures per NFPA 80. These inspections are performed at least annually with a copy of each inspection ticket given to the customer for their records.
Field Labeling for Doors, Frames and Hardware
DH Pace can facilitate field re-labeling of doors, frames and some hardware items, that have missing or illegible fire-rated labels.
Door barcodes help building owners quickly identify openings and help speed up the annual FireCheck® inspection process. DH Pace can add barcodes to any opening with individualized numbering and company-specific logos.
