Suppose your door fails because you neglected to keep it maintained. It would mean a loss of business, you won’t be able to deliver your services and product to the customers who rely on you. Another important risk is not being compliant with employee safety (OSHA) and NFPA codes exposing you to safety liability
Compliance and Codes
Did you know that:
Rolling steel type fire doors must be inspected and drop tested annually in accordance with the door manufacturer’s instructions; this testing is required by the National Fire Protection Association standard NFPA 80. This requirement applies to all fire doors –even those that are not used and remain in the closed position. All horizontal or vertical sliding and rolling fire doors shall be inspected and tested annually to check for operation and full closure. Resetting of the release mechanism shall be done in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. A written record shall be maintained and shall be made available to the authority having jurisdiction. When conducting the annual test for operation and full closure, rolling steel fire doors shall be drop tested twice. The first test shall be to check for operation and full closure. A second test shallbe done to verify that the automatic closing device has been properly reset. Refer to DASMA Technical Data Sheet TDS-271.
