APV ServicesSupport for architects, contractors, and owners
Door openings represent a very small percentage of total building costs, yet can be the largest problem during construction and maintenance of the facility. APV is ready to make sure you get the right product for the application and we will still be there to support the facility after occupancy. We can assist with design and specifications, offer options to satisfy unusual conditions, and provide training for installers that may be seeing new products for the first time.
NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives (2007 edition) requires annual inspections of fire doors including a written record of the inspection signed and kept on file for your AHJ. APV can provide your inspection and if you choose, can provide the service to correct any deficiencies. Make sure your fire rated openings function properly and that you are in compliance with local regulations.
APV can not only provide any door opening component, but also can install and service the complete door opening. Whether a single opening or thousands, our installation services can save time, money, and the headaches of coordinating multiple subcontractors. When doors will be installed by another trade, APV can preinstall the hardware on the doors prior to delivery assuring the correct hardware is properly installed on every door and saving valuable installation time on site.
Knowing who has keys to your facility, that none have been lost or stolen, and that none have been duplicated is top priority in maintaining the security of your facility. Over time, lax record keeping and issuing keys for convenience have generally compromised most key systems. Older key systems have keys that can easily be duplicated at your local hardware store. APV can survey your facility and provide a quote to upgrade your key system to a new patented key that is only reproducible with your authorization.
Unlike most large door and hardware distributors, APV will still be there after construction to support owners in the daily maintenance of their facility. Service contracts are available which can include 24/7 support. Annual door inspections and preventive maintenance assure doors are functioning properly to keep your facility safe and secure. And when building age or changing needs require door and hardware upgrades, APV can schedule work at times to provide the least impact to your daily operations.
