Hawaii Fire Rated Doors Inspected & Certified

Fire Door Solutions:

Hawaii Fire Doors.com wants you to know that as the 2012 edition of the Life Safety Code regarding NFPA 80 is adopted by your Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) there will be some changes. One of the most significant changes will be to fire rated doors and the hardware on those doors.  All commercial properties will be required to test and inspect all fire rated doors on an annual basis.  This annual inspection requirement cannot be taken lightly, actual inspections will have to be performed by qualified personnel that have an understanding of the operating components of fire rated doors or by a certified third party life safety inspector.

Hawaii Fire Doors.com was created to assist commercial facilities management departments with the ever changing codes and requirements for fire rated doors. Most facilities management departments are currently maxed out on their responsibilities and manpower.   The last thing they need is yet another compliance regulation requiring more manpower and resources.  Hawaii Fire Doors.com saw a need to simplify the process of fire door compliance for commercial facilities.
