Fire Door Facts
Fire doors are responsible for limiting losses in the
event of fire. Found most often in large facilities,
fire doors are located at openings in firewalls. The
firewalls are designed to separate the area into
smaller zones that can prevent the spread of fire to
the entire facility. Typically, fire doors remain open
until called upon to close in the event of fire. The
addition of fire doors and firewalls can lower
insurance costs significantly.
Most insurance companies require yearly testing of
the fire doors in buildings they insure. Unless
installers are fully trained, and follow procedures
set by the National Fire Protection Association, the
fire doors may not function properly. Our installers
are trained in the proper methods of installation, and
understand the principles of fire door operation.
Proper fire door "drop testing" is a procedure that
makes sure your doors will function as planned.
Regular scheduled appointments are available to ensure
that your fire doors will close when it counts! When
your jobs and warehouse contents are on the line don't
take chances, demand professionals, ask for
