The purpose of a fire door is to compartmentalize a building and deter the spread of smoke and flames. Without meeting proper specifications, your building is at risk of penalty of law as well as potential disasters.
Most state fire codes currently require fire door assemblies to be maintained in accordance with National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 80. Since the 2007 edition, NFPA 80 has required fire door assembly inspections as part of Chapter 5 - Care and Maintenance.
These doors are required to be inspected by NFPA 80 after installation or maintenance work, as well as annually. Islandwide Locksmith, Inc. will provide a full report of our inspection, required for review by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and we also possess the capabilities to repair every location that may fail the inspection.
The following are tested during the inspection of a swinging fire door assembly*:
1. Labels are present and legible.
2. No holes or breaks in door or frame.
3. Glazing and glass kit / glass beads are intact and securely fastened.
4. Door, frame, and hardware are in proper working order.
5. No missing or broken parts.
6. Door clearances are within allowable limits.
7. Door closer / spring hinges are operational and door is self-closing.
8. Coordinator ensures that door leaves close in proper sequence (pairs only).
9. Door is self-latching in the closed position.
10. Opening is not equipped with auxiliary hardware items which interfere with operation.
11. No field modifications have been performed that void the label.
12. Gasketing and edge seals, where required, are present, continuous, and of the proper type for a fire door.
13. Signage on door covers less than 5% of door face and is not attached with mechanical fasteners.

Access control is an important function at any institution, regardless of size or function. From institutions with multiple levels of authority to smaller businesses with a handful of employees, it is critical to understand what parties have access to every area of your building(s).
Master Key systems are helpful to control which part of your staff can access their respective areas of work. For example, security or maintenance may be authorized to access locations that nurses and patients are not supposed to be. With a Master Key system, all parties can access basic locations, but only the authorized staff can operate a higher 'tier' of locations. Certain rooms may be inappropriate for even maintenance to access, and can even be keyed to not work with the master key held by the staff.
Whatever your needs are, you tell Islandwide Locksmith, Inc., and we create a system you can understand and communicate to parties in your organization.
Islandwide Locksmith, Inc. employees are trained professionals capable of regaining you access in the event of an emergency. Whether a lost key or broken hardware may be the issue, we find our way through difficulties time and time again. There are multiple forms of regaining access that our staff is highly trained at, to be used only at your institution's discretion.
