Staying current with codes is not getting any easier, but remains one of the most important tasks in our industry and it is necessary that you are aware of the specific changes related to swinging door openings.

This online self-paced course walks you through the changes in the current edition of the International Building Code (IBC) (2015) and provides a Code Update for Swinging Door Openings. By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the code development and adoption implications on a local level.
  • Describe the types of facilities required to have a Storm Shelter.
  • Explain the differences and the changes to cross-corridor double-egress pairs of doors in health care facilities.
  • Describe where information on locations requiring fire-resistant-rated assemblies and fire-protection-rated assemblies is found.
  • List the UL and NFPA standards referenced for positive pressure testing and the assembly type added.
  • Understand changes relating to safety glazing for temperature rise doors, fire-resistant and fire-protection glazing.
  • List the occupancy types added and other changes for controlled egress doors.
  • Identify the standards referenced related to swinging door openings by the 2015 IBC.

To better understand the context of the changes that are covered in the lessons, The 2015 Commentary for the IBC has been extensively revised for each section that addresses electrified hardware. These modifications should assist code officials in interpreting these sections of the IBC more consistently.
