FireCheck® Program

The FireCheck® program for fire-rated swinging doors.

Under the FireCheck® program, a certified inspector conducts a comprehensive visual inspection and functional test, per NFPA 80 requirements, to ensure code compliance. A report complete with photographs documents any deficiencies and includes repair recommendations. Many customers find this service helpful in preparing for compliance audits, especially in the health care environment. This same process can be applied to smoke-rated swinging doors if mandated by the code or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

Maintain a safe path of egress with the FireCheck® program.

Fire Door Drop Test Program

The Fire Door Drop Test (FDDT) program for fire-rated rolling doors, counter doors, shutters, accordion doors, sliding doors and fire curtains includes a code-mandated inspection that follows testing procedures per NFPA 80. These inspections are performed at least annually with a copy of each inspection ticket given to the customer for their records.

Know for a fact that your facility’s doors will work properly in the event of a fire.
