FIRE DOOR INSPECTIONS

Redford Lock Security Solutions is certified to conduct annual inspections for the Fire Door Testing and we can update or repair your door to comply with The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes. We can ensure that you meet the requirements for both the NFPA 101: Life Safety Code® and NFPA 80: Fire Doors & Rated Opening Protectives that address the challenges to protect people from fire and related hazards. We strongly agree that Fire and Egress Door Inspections increase public safety and limit personal liability.

All of our Fire Door Inspections are supervised by an Architectural Hardware Consultant (AHC).

Basic components of our inspections include:

•  One Motion Exit (Egress)
•  Door Swings Smoothly
•  Positive Latching
•  Proper Lubrication
•  Closes and Latches
