Fire Code Friday: Door Operations 2

by Stacey Simmons

TGIFire Code Friday! This week is the second segment in a 3-part series on door operations. NFPA 80 (6.1.3) requires that all swinging fire doors must be closed and latched at the time of a fire. The second type of door operation is automatic-closing. These doors close and latch automatically when released by an automatic fire detector.
