Most of our life safety conversations begin with an explanation of what the code requires. To support those conversations, we are planning an expansion of the “Know Your Code” section of our website. It will deliver more in-depth information that embodies the words “We’re the experts, so that you don’t have to be.”
This expanded section will have more product specific information. It will also map out how Total Door’s labeling, with code-specific information, is unique in our marketplace.
The Know Your Code page currently has a short list of need-to-know requirements related to elevator lobbies and door testing, including code-specific information for IBC and ASME, that can be downloaded. Here are the code sheets available now:
- UL 1784 – Standards for Air Leakage Tests
- IBC 3006.2.1 – Standards for Corridors Adjacent to Hoistway Openings
- ASME A 17.1 – Standards for Additional Doors on Hoistway Openings
