FIRE DOOR INSPECTION AND DROP TESTING
Fire doors are the number one defence for protecting your personnel and building in the event of a fire as they reduce the spread of smoke and fire within your facility. If the door is faulty or damaged, it will not close automatically or seal shut during a fire. This can lead to serious harm to your facility’s structure, equipment, assets and workers. All of which would have been preventable, if you had completed a fire door drop test.
This is why fire door inspections are a safety standard in Canada.
NFPA 80 – The Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives
This standard regulates the installation and maintenance of assemblies and devices used to protect openings in walls, floors, and ceilings against the spread of fire and smoke within, into, or out of buildings.
How Often Should Fire Doors be Tested?
According to NFPA 80, a fire door needs to be inspected and tested annually. It is the employer’s responsibility to make sure that the facility’s fire doors are in proper operation so that they are prepared in case of an emergency. The best way to do this is with an annual fire door drop test with one of our trained professionals.
