I have an overhead roll-up steel fire door that we want to put a powered operator on. What are the regulations in NFPA 80 that I need to watch out for?
Is the equipment coming from the company that manufactured the door??
1. Will it void the listing.
2. Will it drop properly
I have one quote from the manufacturer and one from a secondary vendor who installs roll-up doors.
1. I am not sure if it will void the listing, I think that is the crux here. Is adding a motor to the outside of the door consider a change?
2. I am assuming the manufacturer's operator will be in compliance, not sure on the secondary whether it will drop properly. I will ask.
More than likely and normal, if the original manufacture does not do it or it is not inspected by a field UL approved company, the listing is voided.
We had a motorized rolling fire door in a new five story school, no reported problems. Check with the door manufacturer for any change in the listing. See Cornell M100 FireGard Closing System ”UL approval allows Cornell to retrofit M100 motor, chain and crank operators to most manufacturer’s fire doors while maintaining the door’s listing agency ratings". Recommend looking into a pinch switch on the bottom of the door.
