Building Code Literature

Fire Door Systems, A Guide to Code
Compliance (2018 Edition)

The model building codes require fire and smoke separation, occupancy separation, vertical opening protection and adequate exiting plans in all educational occupancies. Often there is also the need for security barriers to protect regular student-occupied areas from after-hours traffic. All of these applications share a common challenge – egress. Critical to fire and life safety is the need to provide compliant egress features within fire and non-fire rated assemblies that intersect the path of required egress. McKEON specializes in providing egress doors in virtually all assemblies, regardless of rating.
