Tricks Of The Trade: Fire Door Tags

Q We have more than a few fire doors missing their tags. Are other facility managers replacing the whole door in order to get the tag?
Facilities Supervisor, FMC
A If you’re referring to the fire rating door tags, then yes, if you cannot find an acceptable way to verify the fire rating of a door that is required in the opening, then this would be the only option. Once a door is assembled, the only way to determine if it has all necessary components to be the proper fire rating of today’s standards is with destructive examination.
Before spending a lot of money, I would encourage you to discuss the matter with your local Fire Marshal.
