Choosing a Trusted, Reliable Fire Door Inspection Company

Fire protection is a huge responsibility for facility managers. Whether your building is home to hundreds of employees or a small office with just a few, you cannot afford to leave any aspect of fire safety unchecked. Fire doors are no exception. When these crucial protective devices fail due to improper maintenance and inspection, the consequences can be devastating.

While it might be easy to overlook fire door problems in the hustle and bustle of your day-to-day operations, keeping up with regular inspections is one of the most important things you can do to protect people and property. It also happens to be the most cost-effective. In addition to reducing liability, proper fire door maintenance reduces downtime, which can save thousands in lost productivity and repair costs.

But it’s not enough to just keep up with annual inspections. Your fire reliable fire door inspection company must be a trusted, reliable partner with the ability to perform any necessary repairs, install clearly labeled inspection tags and provide detailed reports for your records.

While fire door inspections have been recommended for years, the 2007 edition of NFPA 80 made these inspections mandatory. While some facility owners have been hesitant to implement this requirement, many are now realizing the importance of ensuring their fire doors are properly maintained. The fire marshal is a critical figure in any building and should be consulted for advice regarding how to implement these requirements within your facility.

Fire doors are rated according to how long they can withstand fire, with ratings typically ranging from 20-minutes to 90-minutes. Your local laws and regulations may dictate which type of fire door you’re required to have installed, but it might be worthwhile to consider upgrading to a higher rated door in order to provide additional security and safety to your occupants.
