Fire Door Inspection
Fire Door Inspection
The 2010 Florida Fire Prevention Code, effective December 31, 2011, requires fire doors to be maintained in accordance with NFPA 80 (2007 edition) which stipulates all fire door assemblies to be inspected annually and a written record retained. The goal of a commercial fire door inspection is to provide an indication as to whether the door is in a state of readiness to perform its intended function during a fire. We can develop a program for your facility to keep you in compliance or advise you of the expected cost to come into compliance during the due diligence inspection.

Fire Door Labeling
Certified Inspectors can help coordinate fire door recertification with one of the few fire door certification entities in the country. Such technicians will analyze and review the material and construction of the three major components of the fire door assembly – the door, the frame, and the kick plate, and apply the appropriate time-rated label as required by code.
