Swing Type Fire Door Inspections
Fire doors are an important part of a building’s passive fire protection system, and doors in a means of egress, provide life safety by allowing people to exit quickly when necessary. Simply put, a protected opening in a fire or smoke barrier (wall) is required to be a fire door assembly, which includes the door, frame, hardware, and glazing. These components are not typically required to be supplied by the same manufacturer—in most cases, they can be separate products which are listed, labeled, or classified for use in a fire door assembly. Occasionally, an assembly will be made of components that have been tested together and must be used to maintain the rating. Read More
Each project receives a detailed report with specific information regarding compliance or non-compliance with the applicable codes. Each report will provide the building owner, or person responsible for the buildings compliance, with a rated door inventory, required observation and inspection points, and photos as required. This report will be in digital and/or printed formats. Read More
