Testing Commercial Fire Doors
Owning and operating a business brings many responsibilities for property owners, including making sure that one’s business is safe in case of fires. In the Austin area, dry conditions sometimes increase the chances of a fire occurring, making it a good idea for business owners to not only have fire doors at their business, but to also have these doors inspected and tested.
At Cowart Door Systems, our Austin commercial door experts not only provide and install fire doors for business owners, but we also test each fire door to ensure that it is safe. If you or someone you know has questions about fire doors or using them at your business, contact us today by calling (512) 459-3467.
What Testing Involves
Testing for fire door safety is an essential process, as even the smallest defect or error can mean extreme danger. When testing fire doors, experts:
- Examine carpets, wires, or other materials near the door
- Ensure that locking mechanisms on doors are working
- Check the rating of flammability on each door
- Ensure that no items unsafely block the doors or keep them from closing
Every one of these inspection items is important to check during general testing of fire doors. If you own a business that has fire doors, it’s important to ensure that the doors are safe and that they will not cause a problem down the road by not being regularly tested.
If you need your business’s fire doors tested, contact an experienced Austin commercial fire door specialist of Cowart Door Systems today at (512) 459-3467. We can quickly provide the testing and any repairs you may need.
