Fire Doors and Fire Door Drop Testing Services
The purpose of a fire door is to provide barrier protection to wall openings in the event of a fire. Fire doors are rated depending on how many hours they can withstand extreme heat. A fire door’s time rating must be equal to or greater than the rating of the wall it’s installed on.
Our fire doors and grilles are designed and engineered to provide the utmost security and safety in public and industrial areas. Fire doors are typically required in schools, hospitals, pharmacies, restaurants, and some warehouses. In the event of a fire, fire doors can potentially save thousands, even millions of dollars by protecting buildings and materials from extreme heat and flames.
Similar to fire extinguishers, fire doors also require annual inspection. For fire doors, an annual inspection includes:
- Inspecting the door and the opening it’s fastened to.
- Ensuring the door travels properly.
- Drop testing the fire door.
- Documenting the test for personal and insurance records.
Annual inspection and drop testing is required in order to meet National Fire Protection Association standards. Many insurance companies also require annual fire door drop testing.
Our technicians provide comprehensive fire door drop testing services and the documentation to verify proper testing. You can watch our technicians conduct a fire door drop test here.
