+++Fire Rated Doors - Common Violations+++

As you look around your facility at your fire rated doors you may not be aware of some of the more common violations that void your fire ratings:
1. Painted or missing fire labels
2. Poor clearance around perimeter of your door in the closed position
3. Use of kick-down door holders / doors blocked in a hold open position
4. Broken veneer on a wood door / puncture of metal skin on a metal door
5. Broken or defective hardware items
6. Missing or incorrect fasteners
7. Bottom flush bolts that do not project 1/2" into the strike
8. Auxiliary hardware items that interfere with the intended function of the door (barrel bolts, deadbolts, etc)
