Note to owner: NFPA-80 and Model Codes require the annual testing of rolling fire doors to demonstrate proper operation and full closure. Resetting of the release mechanism must be done in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. A written record must be maintained and made available to the authority having jurisdiction. NFPA-80 also requires that when damage impairs the door's proper emergency function that it be repaired with parts obtained from the original door's manufacturer and upon completion of repairs that the door be tested to assure emergency operation and closing.

WARNING: Severe injury or death may result through improper attempts at drop testing, repair and/or maintenance.

Drop testing, repair and/or maintenance should be performed by qualified personnel with a complete knowledge and understanding of this type of door.

Before drop testing, conduct a visual inspection for damaged or missing parts that may create a hazard during testing or affect proper operation or resetting. Verify proper installation. Open and close the door to check for correct spring tenstion.
