Fire Code Friday: Door Operations, Part 1
TGIFire Code Friday! This week, we begin 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 first type of door operation is self-closing. These doors are equipped with a closing device that closes each time it is open (no hold-open).
