We conduct annual inspections on commercial fire doors like these in a local hospital.

Keeping your facility compliant with NFPA 80 fire door inspections requires the knowledge and expertise of the life safety experts at SKH Locksmiths and Security, LLC. NFPA 80, which refers to the Standard for Fire Door Assemblies and Other Opening Protectives, spells out the requirements pertaining to swinging fire doors and other opening protectives. When fire doors are assembled and installed, they must receive annual fire door inspections to stay in compliance with the regulations. Also, certain facilities, such as hospitals and other healthcare establishments, are required to get annual fire door inspections. In addition to annual inspections, you can depend on the professionals at SKH Locksmiths and Security, LLC for installation, door hardware repair, and maintenance of your fire doors.

Fire Door Hardware Repair

Door hardware repair is necessary as components tend to wear out over time and with constant use. This is especially important when it comes to fire doors. Hardware preparations can be made on-site and can include the following:

  • Locks
  • Hinges
  • Closers
  • Astragals

NFPA 80 allows certain preparations to be made once the installation of fire door hardware has been completed. However, they are limited to the following:

  • Drilling of round holes to place cylinders, spindles, through-bolts, and other operational elements
  • Function holes for mortise locks and holes for labeled viewers
  • Wood and composite door undercutting with a maximum of 3/4 inch
  • Protection plates

Protection plates are generally made of plastic or metal and are used to provide protection to the door from impact and regular wear and tear. They may be applied to one or both sides of the door and can be fastened by adhesives, screws or other mechanical means.

Are Your Stairwell Doors Locked?

Stairwell doors and stairwell re-entry are crucial and can be life-saving in the event of an emergency. Stairwell re-entry refers to code requirements that allow an occupant to leave the stairwell in the event of an emergency to find another exit. If the stairwell doors do not allow for re-entry and the stairs become impassible, anyone using the stairwell could be in grave danger. There are many requirements and standards that must be followed when installing stairwell doors to ensure they function properly and are in compliance with safety standards. It takes the expertise of the experienced locksmiths at SKH Locksmiths and Security, LLC for a job of this magnitude. You can rest assured we are up-to-date on all standards and codes when it comes to the proper installation, repair, and maintenance of stairwell doors.
