fire rated door labels

Date:Nov 28, 2018

According to our inspection data, painted or missing fire rated door labels are two of the top ten reasons for deficiencies in fire doors and frames. NFPA 80 requires that all fire door openings (both doors and frames) are required to have a fire rated certification label clearly visible for the AHJ and should not be removed or painted over during the life of the building.

GH can help coordinate fire door re-certification with one of the few fire door certification entities in the country. Such technicians will analyze and review the material and construction of the three major components of the fire door assembly – the door, the frame, and the kick plate, and apply the appropriate time-rated label as required by code.
