Fire Door Labeling & Repair
Code: NFPA 80

Hughes can help coordinate fire door re-certification with one of the few fire door certification entities in the country. These 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, then apply the appropriate time-rated label as required by code.

Fire & Smoke Door Inspection & Repair
Code: NFPA 80 & NFPA 105

Fire-rated doors are an integral part of your building’s overall fire protection system. An operating fire door, just like a properly operating fire damper, is a key component to the compartmentalization of a building to stop the spread of deadly fire, smoke, and toxic fumes.  If the fire door assembly isn’t working properly, your facility is at risk.

Annual fire door inspections were introduced with the adoption of the 2007 Edition of NFPA 80.  The newest standard requires that fire-rated doors be tested for functionality no less than annually, and that a written record of the inspection be kept on file for the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).  Hughes’ fire door inspection protocol is one of the industry’s most detailed.  Our certified fire door inspection team can help ensure your fire doors are code compliant and working properly. Hughes will also provide proof for your AHJ with the best reporting system in the business.

The 2006 International Fire Code and the 2009 International Fire Code both require routine maintenance of fire barrier walls.  Walls should be properly repaired when damaged, altered, breached, or penetrated. Any penetrations found should be repaired with approved methods capable of resisting the passage of smoke and fire.

Maintaining the integrity of your facility’s fire-rated walls is critical. That’s why it is important to contract with a firm that is experienced working in large commercial facilities. Our experience and training from industry leaders such as STI, Hilti and 3M, make us the safest choice when it comes to performing firestop installation and survey services in warehouses and industrial facilities.
