Fire is a hazard that can break out any time and it is essential for both the residences as well as the businesses to take proper security measures to ensure the safety of the residents and the employees. There are several security equipments like fire alarms, smoke alarms etc. that can be installed in the premises to remain safe. However, having an appropriate escape system is also essential. The escape system has a fire exit door which should be of good quality and in working condition so that people can get out of the premises safely.
As these doors are not in use, they might get jammed and hence it is essential that you get them inspected from time to time. Fire door inspection is must to ensure smooth functioning of the door.
Why inspection of fire door is important?
- Inspection is very important to check the holes and locks which are attached with the door because if the locks and spy holes are not fire certified, they might not be able to hold the fire. You don’t need to compromise with the safety and hence do proper inspections.
- During the inspection, inspectors check and see that the installation is done properly or not. They will check the presence of any unwanted object or build up that might disrupt the fire door to close. They will take off such particles to ensure that the door opens smoothly.
- The fire door has a feature of automatic closing, that’s why it is closed all the times, so the inspector will check that the automatic system is performing properly or not.
