Fire doors — self-inspection program

Fire doors are designed to close automatically and prevent fire spread from one space to another though an open doorway. A fire door inspection program will help to maintain the integrity of fire doors by identifying and expediting repairs. While NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives, published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), requires an annual inspection of fire doors and similar protective closures, most risk control consultants recommend weekly and monthly inspections for fire doors.
