I have an opportunity to do a Q&A with a company offering field relabeling/recertification of fire door assemblies, and I want to make sure that I don’t miss any questions you may have.  I’ve collected a few, but I’d love to hear what you’d like to know!

Sample questions:

  • If a fire door assembly is modified in the field prior to the relabeling process, how is the modification evaluated to determine whether the door or frame can be relabeled?
  • When relabeling a fire door, do you inspect the glazing?  If the glazing is not code-compliant, does that affect the relabeling of the door?
  • Before modifying an existing fire door assembly, how can an installer be sure that the door or frame can be relabeled afterward?
  • If a fire door does not have an existing label, how does an inspector determine what level of fire resistance is met by the door (45, 60, 90 minutes, etc.)?
  • When relabeling a fire door assembly, how are more recent changes to the codes or standards addressed?  Does the opening have to meet current requirements?
  • What education or experience is required for people who are relabeling fire door assemblies in the field?
