We Re-Label Fire Door

The most top reason for non-compliant fire rated assembly (doors and frames) are painted, damaged, or missing fire re-label fire door frames to make sure it is complaint with laws. NFPA 80 requires that all fire door openings (both doors and frames) are required to have a fire rated certification label clearly visible for the AHJ and should not be removed or painted over during the life of the building. 2013 edition, contains the following language regarding labeled products:

4.2.1* Listed items shall be identified by a label.

4.2.2 Labels shall be applied in locations that are readily visible and convenient for identification by the AHJ after installation of the assembly.

A.4.2.1 Labels can be permitted to be of metal, paper, or plastics or can be permitted to be stamped or diecast into the item. Labels should not be removed, defaced, or made illegible while the door is in service. If the label on an existing fire door has been removed or is no longer legible, it is acceptable to verify the rating of the fire door through other means acceptable to the AHJ such as an inspection or certification service that provides acceptable documentation.

Labels on fire doors, fire door frames, or other components of a fire door assembly, are the identifying mark that the door or component has been tested to the required first test standards and has passed the criteria required by those test standards.  Labels prove to inspectors, AHJs, building owners, or anyone else observing the fire door assembly that it (as tested) will protect the opening as it did when tested
