Annual Fire Barrier Inspections

Fire barriers include fire-rated walls, floors, and ceilings that are used to limit the spread of fire in a building and allow adequate time for occupants to safely relocate or exit. Fire barriers are also used to prevent the spread of fire between adjacent buildings. Maintaining fire barrier integrity is critical. Any improperly sealed or unprotected fire barrier opening might result in fire spread. Openings in fire barriers include doors, windows, ductwork, and other penetrations such as pipes and cables. Most buildings undergo consistent if not constant modifications. Oftentimes, the existing fire barriers are modified after initial construction. These modifications might result in degradations to the fire barrier. A periodic fire barrier inspection program helps identify deficiencies. The inspection includes evaluating:

  • Wall penetrations
  • Floor penetrations
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • All other communications in the fire barrier
