A fire door inspection is an initial step in ensuring fire safety compliance in any property. The building’s fire door should comply with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and Life Fire Safety Code to prevent life and property risks during a fire emergency. An annual inspection helps assure the compliance of your building’s fire doors with safety codes and standards.

Fire door inspections are a mandatory annual requirement to ensure that any building's fire doors comply with fire safety standards and codes. It provides documentation to the NFPA, your insurance company, and the AHJ that your property’s fire doors fulfill the fire safety requirements. (AHJ, or authorities having jurisdiction, are people who are qualified to enforce regulations.)
Fire safety inspection teams, facility managers, fire inspectors, and building owners can use a fire inspection checklist to ensure that the building's fire doors are fire-rated and compliant with the state and federal fire safety standards and regulations. It helps in implementing proactive preventive maintenance and annual inspection programs according to local and federal standards.
You need to implement fire safety and protection measures at your building or facility, and fire-rated doors are one of them. With a fire door inspection app, you can simplify the inspection process and store inspection records securely in the cloud. You can also send inspection reports directly from on-site and send automated notifications to stakeholders when an inspection is complete or if action is required.
