Don’t pay the high price of neglecting your Fire Doors
Rolling Fire Doors are designed to provide automatic closing and fire protection as indicated on the fire door label. The automatic closing of the door must be tested at the time of door installation and annually as required by NFPA 80. The doors must be checked regularly by a trained door systems technician for conditions that may affect the operation of the door. The technicians will perform an annual inspection and drop test of all fire door automatic closing features.
