Overhead & Rolling Door Inspections

Overhead & Rolling door inspections are an integral part of your building’s overall fire protection system. An operating overhead or rolling door, just like a properly operating fire damper, is a key component to the compartmentalization of a building to stop the spread of deadly fire, smoke and toxic fumes. With this in mind, if the overhead & rolling door assembly isn’t inspected thoroughly or working properly, then the facility is at risk.

Rolling Door Inspections

In reality, experienced building owners and facility managers do not overlook Overhead & Rolling Door Inspections. National Fire Protection Association standards NFPA 80 require business owners and property managers to have their rolling steel fire doors and sliding fire doors inspected and tested at a minimum once a year. It is important to keep all written documentation of these inspections and tests. LSS Life Safety Services specialize in National Accounts with multiple facilities nationwide.

In fact, All fire rated doors and opening protectives must undergo annual testing and inspection. NFPA 80 publishes these guidelines to help ensure life safety and property protection. Some of the topics covered in the NFPA 80 are operability, door blockage, replacement, labeling and removal for rolling fire doors, fire shutters and fire protective openings.
