Importance of Regular Inspections

FDC emphasizes the importance of regular fire door inspections to promptly identify and address any non-compliant doors including wear and tear or damage. Regular checks ensure proper functioning of fire door hardware like self-closing devices and intumescent strips. They also verify proper door alignment and closure to effectively resist and restrict fire and smoke spread.
