Fire Door Inspection Cards

Fire Door Inspection CardA few months ago I posted some images of a new educational piece on fire door inspections.  When I was in Carmel last month I saw one in person, and I think they’re great!  They’re hard laminated cards – about 4 inches wide and 12 inches long.  We have some in stock so if you would like any, please drop me an email with your shipping address and the quantity you need.  I’d like to make sure everyone who wants some can get a supply from this initial order, so if you’re looking for a large quantity I may have to ship you a smaller portion and then ship more later.

The images of the front and back of the card are below – this could be used by fire door assembly inspectors, AHJs, distributors, locksmiths, end users, or anyone else who wants to educate someone about fire doors.  There is a link on the card to my website – a page dedicated to fire door information.  I’d love for you all to take a look at the page and suggest any additional information I should add.  The page is

I look forward to your comments and suggestions!

P.S. There’s no charge for these cards…consider it my gift (and Allegion’s!) to you.  🙂

    Nice. We could use about eight of them.
    Is there a cost, or are you looking out for yourself to be sure our fire doors will protect you when you visit VT.

  2. Julia says:

    Those look great! I sent you an email.

  3. Rachel Smith says:

    These are fantastic!! Kudos to you and your group for all that you do to keep everyone educated.

    “Necessary repairs must be corrected without delay”? That seems somewhat odd phrasing. I would think defects should be corrected, and repairs should be performed.

  5. Russ Jones says:

    we would like 8-ea if these cards…what a great tool.
    Thank you for all the helpful info.
    I emailed you our mailing address

    I would like 2 only but will email you a postal address separately.

    I do have a question about item 13. Perhaps I missed this but it says you may not screw signage to a door. News to me. Since a screw will fill its own hole, what difference could this make? Glue would often be adding fuel to the fire.

      Here’s what NFPA 80-2013 says: Means of Attachment. Signs shall be attached to fire doors by use of an adhesive. Mechanical attachments such as screws or nails shall not be permitted. Signs shall not be installed on glazing material in fire doors. Signs shall not be installed on the surface of fire doors so as to impair or otherwise interfere with the proper operation of the fire door.
