This course will educate the carpenter on the importance and understanding of the installation and maintenance of Fire and Egress door assemblies. Material presented will reference the NFPA 80 - Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives, NFPA 101- Life Safety Code, and the NFPA 105 – Standard for Smoke Door Assemblies and Other Opening Protectives with an emphasis on swinging doors. The differences between codes and standards will be explained. The member will learn about the roles and responsibilities of performing, recording, inspecting and testing, after installation, for both new and existing fire and egress door assemblies. NFPA 80 fire door assemblies’ 13-point door inspection, test and verification is one of the focal points of this course. Application of the ADA Standards will also be discussed to better understand the functionality of these assemblies. At the end of this course, there will be an assessment test to evaluate and ensure the proficiency of understanding the importance of fire and egress door assemblies.
