NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives, requires formal door safety inspection and operational testing of the types of fire doors and window assemblies that it covers. The most important principle of performing NFPA 80's inspections and testing is that the doors and windows should be inspected in accordance with the codes and standards that were in effect at the time of installation. That makes sense, right? In most cases, it's easier said, than done.
This webinar presents a history of NFPA 80's ever-evolving requirements for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Fire door inspectors, AHJs. and facility personnel need to be aware of NFPA 80's history to accurately and appropriately assess existing swinging fire doors.
