Large Facility Monthly Exit Doors Log (Canada) Mobile App
The Large Facility Monthly Exit Doors Log is an app that allows an inspector or employee to check fire separator doors, specifically checking that all fire separator doors are closed, and that the release, open freely, self-close, and latch properly.
How does it work?
Passive fire protection methods include using fire-rated doors which help to isolate and allow for control of fires a building. A fire separator door is designed with hardware that can withstand a certain degree of heat, and is insulated with fire retardant materials. The door assembly surrounding a separator is also designed to attach to the door frame in such a way as to not open unless being opened by a person so that the heat or draft from a fire cannot open the door to let in an oxygen source. It is important for as little separation as possible to exist between the door and the door frame - this is also to avoid an oxygen source being readily available. If a fire ends up contained in an area surrounded by fire safe doors, the doors can confine the smoke, ultimately suppressing the fire for a period of time for first responders to arrive. Building code mandates fire-resistant construction.
