Swinging fire doors have one job: preventing a fire from spreading.
Properly inspecting and maintaining swinging fire doors ensures they are ready to perform their one job. Understanding NFPA 80’s current requirements for inspecting, maintaining, and repairing swinging fire doors is only the beginning.
Older existing fire doors were installed before many of today’s code requirements came into effect. Learning how older existing fire doors need to be inspected and maintained is essential to correctly performing NFPA 80’s door safety inspection.
This two-hour webinar introduces you to the 2022 edition of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives. Specifically, this session covers changes in NFPA 80 that provide guidance for inspecting and maintaining older existing fire doors.
