The last thing that a facility manager wants to hear is that their fire doors didn’t pass inspection, making them non-compliant with regulations. NFPA 80 regulations require that your fire doors are properly functioning, without damage that could interfere with their operation. If your fire doors aren’t up to code, it is a safety hazard that can interfere with the functioning of your facility. If you’ve found yourself non-compliant and need fire door repairs in SC, then choose our experienced team at Brand Services to assist you with quality repairs.
Fire door repair is complicated and precise work that requires formal training and a specific skill set. If done improperly, your building may not stand in the event of a fire. It is difficult to know exactly what to do to pass inspection, which is why only a certified and qualified individual is authorized to perform the repairs.
The most common repairs that are done by a fire door repair team include repairing holes in the frame or door, replacing door seals or broken hardware, and adjusting gaps in the fire door to minimize the amount of smoke that could pass through. While these can be performed by a skilled team, NFPA regulations impose limits on what hardware repairs can be performed on the job site. These include function holes for mortise locks and surface-applied hardware, both with a maximum diameter of 1”, peepholes, preparation for protection plate, and a maximum of ¾” wood or composite door cutting.
In the case that your repairs are outside of these guidelines, our repair team will contact the manufacturer of the door located on the label to discuss technical specifications, their intended repairs, and make sure that these repairs will not void the door’s label with the manufacturer (therefore becoming non-compliant).
