    Fire Door Hardware(A Key Component)

    Door latches (lock sets), Closers, Coordinators & Flush bolts:

    These hardware components usually relate to swing type fire doors(office & corridor), found on your property.

    Closers are required to make sure the doors close.

    The coordinator is a device found at the header (bar, roller or other)that ensures the doors close in proper order so they latch properly.

    The flush bolts (often automatic) are found on the in-active door,and will engage when the active door closes.

    Rolling Steel Fire Doors:

    Drop Testingand Annual Follow-Up


    This Technical Data Sheet provides facility managers with guidelines for evaluation of rolling

    fire doors

    designed and tested to provide the automatic closing fire protection indicated on the fire

    door label. The

    automatic closing of the door must be tested at the time the door is installed, and the doorshall be inspected and tested not less than annually as required by NFPA 80. The doors must

    be checked regularly for conditions that may affect the operation of the door. DASMA

    recommends that the following procedures be observed:


    Inspect fire doors for damage to guides, curtain and end locks, bottom bar, hood and

    operating mechanism.Refer to DASMA Technical Data Sheet #270 (Recommended Rolling Door Maintenance


    Refer to NFPA 80 (Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives)

    Ensure that the doors operating mechanisms, fuse links and release chain/cable are not

    painted, coated

    with dust or grease, and/or covered with debris.

    Open and close the door to inspect for any indications of damaged parts.

    Remove flammable substances on each side of the firewall opening near the fire door.

    Drop Test

    Have a trained door systems technician perform an inspection and drop test of all fire door

    automaticclosing features.

    Establish a contract with the door service provider regarding the cost of the inspection and

    drop test. Fire door deficiencies identified during the pre-drop test inspection should be

    corrected before the drop test.

    The drop test contract should acknowledge the fact that components may fail during the drop

    test that arenot the fault of the service provider and are not included in the cost of the drop test.

    Document the drop test with the attached Drop Test Form.

    When subjected to drop testing; the door must close completely and rest on the sill. NFPA 80

    states that the average closing speed must not exceed 24 inches per second and must be at

    least 6 inches per second.

    The door must be drop tested twice once to verify proper operation and full closure, and a

    second time to verify that the automatic closing device was properly reset.
