Smoke, Fire, and Egress doors play a key role in building safety. To help protect property and save lives, these doors must operate when called upon. DH Pace Iowa’s FireCheck ® Program is designed to assist facility owners and tenants in their legal obligation to maintain openings in compliance with IBC, IFC, NFPA 80, NFPA 101 & NFPA 105 codes.
The inspection consists of five parts:
- Pre-inspection coordination meeting

- Visual inspection
- Functional test
- Component inspection
- Opening deficiency summary
- Written opening inspection report
- Annual re-inspection for continued code compliance
The Benefits of the FireCheck ® program include:
