Got swinging fire doors? Got questions? Good news, you are not alone! Since July of 2016, swinging fire doors in healthcare facilities have been subject to the door safety inspection and testing requirements of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Opening Protectives. Many door safety inspection reports include erroneous listings of deficiencies. Some facilities are instructed (and required) to relabel their door frames and doors unnecessarily.

This webinar will help everyone involved in the fire door inspection process. AHJs, architects, code consultants, contractors/installers, facility management personnel, inspectors, and door and hardware suppliers.

There is something for everyone! Misunderstandings of NFPA 80's requirements lead to misapplying and over-applying its requirements. Knowing how to fact-check door safety inspection reports to sort out conditions requiring corrective action from incorrectly listed non-compliant conditions is necessary.

Dispelling assumptions, myths, and misconceptions of swinging fire doors clarify which requirements apply to each fire door assembly, and when.

This webinar discusses many of the assumptions and myths regarding swinging fire doors and might help you better manage NFPA 80's door safety inspection and testing process.
