This standard relates to all doors with a fire-resistant rating, which is part of a passive fire protection system. The existence, or lack thereof, of a fire label on a fire-rated door, does not affect these standards. If the label on the fire-rated door is missing, obscured, hidden, or painted over, the fire-rated door should still be inspected using this standard.
The standards on these doors relate to the following:
- Damaged surface and seals.
- Self-closing hardware on fire-rated doors.
- Obstructions that prevent a fire-rated door from self-closing to the latched position.
- Fire-rated doors that do not open or have any other form of damage.
- Under this standard, all fire-labeled doors must have a self-closing device installed on the door, functioning as intended.
Objects that may prevent a fire-labeled door from closing and latching or self-closing and latching may include, but are not limited to:
- Wood wedge
- Kick-down door stop
- Trash can
- Rubber band
