Another webinar on NFPA 80's door safety inspections and testing for fire doors! How could there be anything else to talk about, right? That's a fair question to ask. Many articles, blogs, posts, and webinars have been made regarding NFPA 80's door safety inspections for fire door assemblies. Very few, if any, of these articles, blogs, posts, and webinars focus on how to assess the conditions of fire doors. They covered the technical criteria and requirements for inspecting and testing swinging fire doors, but they are silent on how to perform the inspections and testing. NFPA 80 itself is silent regarding "the how" of the inspections and testing processes.

Door safety inspections of fire doors need to be performed in a manner that produces consistent results, from one door assembly to the next, and between the persons performing the inspections; especially, in the same building/facility. AHJs need to have confidence that the inspections and testing records accurately reflect the conditions of the fire doors—at least, at the time the inspections and testing took place.

This webinar focuses on the "how" of performing NFPA 80's door safety inspections and testings. For example, door safety inspectors need to follow the same process every time they assess the condition of swinging fire door assemblies. Many fire doors have mechanical functions only. Some fire doors have electrified and mechanical functions, ranging from automatic-closing operation to sophisticated access-control functions and powered operated functions.
