This course outlines the multiple ways in which sliding fire doors may be used to create open-concept designs while maintaining fire code compliance and life safety requirements. It will also cover Value Engineering uses of this product type. The information will be primarily shared through case studies of how architects have utilized the product in a multitude of projects since 1977 when the building codes first accepted the doors for use. Local fire code references, NYC code references, and the basic differences between Fire Walls, Barriers, and Partitions will be provided.
