Many buildings, including schools, high-rises, health care facilities, hospitals, churches, office buildings, factories, and warehouses are likely to have fire doors. Should a fire occur, the health, safety, and welfare of building occupants and emergency responders depend on the regular inspection of fire doors.
The goal of a commercial fire door inspection is to provide an indication as to whether or not the door is in a state of readiness to perform its intended function during a fire. This commercial inspection service does not cover all of the possible local, state, provincial, and federal requirements, or meet the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 80: Standard for Fire Door and Other Opening Protectives or NFPA 101: Life Safety Code. It is performed in accordance with the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Fire Doors.
Fire doors should be inspected after any incidents that may have damaged the door or its components or upon noticing possible damage, but not less than annually.
The fire door inspection may be ordered in conjunction with a complete visual commercial property inspection or as a separate, stand-alone inspection service.
