15 NFPA Edition Most Common Denominator Establishes Basic Requirements for New Fire-Rated Door Assemblies Establishes Care and Maintenance Requirements
16 Fire Door Inspection - Background Fire Doors are governed by the building code and NFPA throughout design, specification, installation and occupancy permitting.
17 Fire Door Inspection - Background Once a Certificate of Occupancy has been issued, the building code is closed. The International Fire Code or Life Safety Code is now in effect for the operation and maintenance of the facility. Formerly, the IFC did not contain language for post-occupancy inspection of fire-rated doors
18 IFC Fire walls, fire barriers and fire partitions. Required fire walls, fire barriers and fire partitions shall be maintained to prevent the passage of fire. All openings protected with approved doors and fire dampers shall be maintained in accordance with NFPA 80.
19 Fire Door Inspection -- IBC The International Building Code is used until the certificate of occupancy is issued Fire door and shutter assemblies. Fire door assemblies and shutters shall be installed in accordance with the provisions of this section and NFPA 80.
20 Fire Door Inspection NFPA Fire-rated door assemblies shall be inspected and tested in accordance with NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives.

45 Annual Inspection of Fire Door Assemblies Inspector s Responsibilities Status of door openings on date of inspection Recommend necessary corrections Providing written inspection reports
46 Annual Inspection of Fire Door Assemblies Inspectors Are Not Responsible For: Making sure openings are repaired Determining the correct fire-rating of door openings Alert AHJ of problems
47 NFPA Standard for Fire Doors Chapter 5 Care & Maintenance Performance-Based Option As an alternate means of compliance with 5.2.1, subject to the AHJ, fire door assemblies shall be permitted to be inspected, tested, and maintained under a written performance-based program.
48 NFPA Standard for Fire Doors Chapter 5 Care & Maintenance Performance-Based Option Goals established under a performance-based program shall provide assurance that the fire door assembly will perform its intended function when exposed to fire conditions Technical justification for inspection, testing, and maintenance intervals shall be documented.
49 NFPA Standard for Fire Doors Chapter 5 Care & Maintenance Performance-Based Option The performance-based option shall include historical data acceptable to the AHJ.
50 MGM Grand Hotel Fire Door Inspection Example. Without Performance-Based Option January 1 st -- 2 inspectors start inspecting doors. Each inspector works 40 hours a week for a full year. December 31 st, all doors have been inspected. January 1 st Start all over again.
51 NFPA Standard for Fire Doors Equation to determine acceptable level of performance: FDFR(t) = NF / (NC x t) FDFR represents the Fire Door Failure Rate over a particular period of time (t) NF represents documented failures NC represents total number of inspected fire doors
52 NFPA Standard for Fire Doors Example..020 = 5 / (50 x 5) Over a 5-year period, 250 fire doors inspected (50 x5), 5 determined to be failures, the building has a failure rate of 2% per year. Acceptable level performance rating of 98%.
53 Identifying Fire Door Assemblies Maintenance personnel access to the as built floor plans. AHJ s office archived copies of floor plans No plans available should physically check each door opening looking for labels.
54 Locating Fire Doors in Buildings Interior doors opening into and out of stairwells and corridors. Door openings placed at building separations. Look for labels on hinge side of door
55 Performing the Inspections Presumption of Correct Application Original Building, Fire and Life Safety Code Requirements Practical Application of Inspection Criteria
56 Original Building, Fire and Life Safety Requirements Inspectors should be cognizant of the building, fire and life safety codes that were applicable at the time of installation. Should not apply the capabilities, limitations and requirements for modern products to assemblies installed years ago. NFPA 80 standard is applicable to all existing fire door assemblies, regardless of when they where installed.
