Fire Rated Door Assemblies: Compliant Designs - Update
About the Sponsor
Steel Door Institute (SDI) was established in 1954 as a non-profit business association that develops standards for steel doors and frames. These standards are available free of charge so architects can ensure quality and consistency of steel doors and frames. SDI members are the only manufacturers that have been audited to ensure they meet our standards.
This course focuses on compliant designs for fire door assemblies, frames, and hardware. Learn basic fire door assembly requirements for a variety of enclosures and how those standards must be met. In addition, ensure your fire rated openings are compliant by learning about the applicable codes, requirements, and design considerations.
