What to Check on Your Fire-Rated Door

As you browse our website, you should have noticed that our doors are broken down into many different categories. However, one important category we want to focus on is fire-rated doors. Fire-rated doors are used for passive fire protection of buildings and help compartmentalize. But it isn’t just enough to install a door and call it quits; it must be maintained. Below are a few areas to check on your fire-rated door.

  • Look for a label, a plug or similar marking to show that it’s certificated
  • Make sure the door leaf isn’t damaged, warped or twisted
  • Ensure it closes correctly around all parts of the frame
  • Check that the hinges are firmly fixed into the door and the frame with no missing screws
  • Ensure that the seals at the top and sides of the door are not damaged or missing
  • Make sure any glass and the beads holding the glass are fitted firmly
  • Check that the door is marked correctly with appropriate signage

These are just a few things to check when inspecting your fire-rated door. If you have any questions about your fire-rated door, our consultants are always available.
