problem  solutionTypically when dealing with conventional Fire Doors we see several problems that can bring an operation to a grinding halt.

  • Inadequate maintenance – Poor or infrequent door maintenance can lead to rusting of the metal parts and paint build-up on gears and sash chains can prevent links from functioning correctly.
  • Improper / poor installation resulting from inexperienced installers.
  • Testing difficulty and improper resetting -Testing difficulties can happen for many reasons.  Malfunctions with sash chains and fusible links, misapplied spring tension and even improper resetting.
  • Defective parts due to insufficient QC at the manufacturing plant.
  • Damage – Forklifts and poor or hastily stacked heavy load items can be problematic on the long life of your Fire Doors.
