- it is critical to use the proper terminology and reference the correct code requirements in order to properly specify doors, frames, and hardware for fire door and smoke door assemblies;
- how the project team of the Hale Centre Theatre in Sandy, Utah, addressed exterior noise intrusion and life safety with the installation of acoustical smoke vents; and
- the importance of perimeter fire barrier systems, and provides actionable guidance for architects, specifiers, and general contractors to ensure they deliver the level of fire safety their customers have come to expect.
