Did you know that, according to NFPA 80, your fire doors must be inspected not less than annually? 

On August 28, NFPA will be offering a free webinar on the inspection, testing, and maintenance of  swinging fire doors.  The webinar is sponsored by the Door and Hardware Institute (DHI), FDAI, Door Security and Safety Foundation, and Intertek, and will be presented by Keith Pardoe, of DHI, and also an active NFPA 80 Technical Committee member as well as Kristin Bigda, a Senior Fire Proection Engineer at NFPA.  

This webinar in a great opportunity to learn about the inspection, testing, and maintence provisions contained in NFPA 80 related to swinging fire doors.  Building owners and managers, authorities  having jurisdiction, and the fire door inspectors all have important  roles and responsibilities in a building’s annual fire door inspection  process and will benefit from the material that will be addressed. We will be discussing the current requirements of NFPA 80, as well as the specific responsibilities of all  parties involved in the door inspection process. In addition, common door deficiencies and inspection issues to look for in the field will be shown.
