Fire doors should be repaired whenever there is damage, wear, or defects that compromise their fire resistance or functionality. It is important to address repair needs promptly to ensure the door’s effectiveness in containing fire and smoke. There are many instances where JST Construction won’t be able to provide fire door repair, and replacements will be paramount. If this is the case for your fire door, we will let you know and keep you fully informed.
Common reasons for fire door repairs include damage from impact, wear and tear over time, improper maintenance, malfunctioning hardware (such as hinges or door closers), gaps between the door and frame, damaged or missing seals, and non-compliance with fire safety standards. The extent of all faults mentioned will determine whether or not JST Construction can provide a repair or replacement.
Signs that a fire door may need repairs include visible damage (such as cracks, dents, or holes), misalignment, excessive gaps between the door and frame, damaged or missing seals, difficulties in closing or latching the door, or non-functioning door hardware. Regular inspections can help identify repair needs.
Fire door repairs should be performed carefully to maintain the door’s fire rating. The use of approved fire-rated materials, proper installation techniques, and adherence to manufacturer’s guidelines are crucial to preserve the fire resistance and rating of the door.
The duration of fire door repairs can vary depending on the scope of the repairs, the availability of materials, and the specific circumstances. Minor repairs may be completed relatively quickly, while more extensive repairs or replacements may take longer. JST Construction will keep you in the loop from start to finish on the approximate time it will take to repair your fire door.
