Do you use a door closer on the half leaf or would you lock shut with bolts?
Any NFPA clause I can use to on how to address this issue?TIA
First it has to be listed!!
Just cannot cut a full door and make it Dutch.
NFPA 80 and "Building codes" require almost any rated door to be self closing and latching.
Plus most Dutch rated doors have an intumescent seal or similar between the doors.
They are a pain to maintain
Check these links on Dutch doors.
It was 60 mins. rebated fire door 2.1m x 1.2m- (900mm/300mm) along the corridor leading to another compartment and egress route.
1. Shall I put 2 door closer with coordinator with automatic flush bolt?
2. Shall I put one closer on active and bolted the other manually? But opening clear width will be affected.
3. Shall I put fire rated exit device on both doors?
But the main question would be shall I put door closer on the half leaf? Will it be enough to comply with opening force?
Is this in the US??
1. If the opening has to have a rated door, which it sounds like it does, than you are required a labeled, tested door.
2. Did someone take a rated door and cut it half??
3. To answer your last question,
Both sections have to close on their own
Both sections have to positive latch
There needs to have a tested means to keep the fire rating, between the two sections, where they meet.
Fire rated doors cannot be modified in the field, in order to meet all these.
The doors have to be bought all set up
