Life Safety & Fire Protection Frequently Asked Questions

Which life safety and fire protection services does BRAND offer that would be of assistance in maintaining my facility and its fire code compliance?

All of BRAND’s life safety and fire protection services meet fire code compliance requirements.  We inspect, repair, maintain, label and decommission both Fire Doors and Fire Dampers.  We provide Deficiency resolution assistance, fire and smoke barrier inspections, upgrades, repairs, firestopping, fireproofing, and numerous services within the regulatory compliance field.

How often do I have to have a fire / smoke damper inspection?

Per NPFA 80 – 19.4.1 2010 Edition States: Each damper shall be tested and inspected 1 year after installation.

Per NFPA 80 – 19.4.1.1 2010 Edition States: The test and inspection frequency shall then be every 4 years, except in hospital, where the frequency shall be every 6 years.

How often do I have to have a fire door inspection?

To maintain a facility’s passive fire protection, healthcare facilities are required to follow NFPA 80 – 5.2.1 2010 Edition which states: Fire door assemblies shall be inspected and tested not less than annually, and a written record of the inspection shall be signed and kept for inspection by the AHJ. For more information visit the Fire Door section of our website.

What is the turnaround time for repairs to be completed after the inspection process is finished?

Although, BRAND is able to turn around the inspection finding very quickly and can proceed with repairs immediately, the turnaround time is dependent on each facility. As soon as a facility is able to generate the proper documentation to begin work, BRAND will be able to staff your facility within a few days and quicker for emergencies.

Can BRAND bundle their life safety services and fire protection services into one package?

Yes. In order to provide facilities and contractors with a one-stop solution BRAND is able to bundle our services. This offers facility managers and general contractors the ease of working with one company and reduces the cost of our services to the customer.

Does BRAND have safety policies and procedures in place?
