OP1 Fire Protection of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that a hold-open device will not release a door and maintain the integrity of the fire separation [in which the door is located] when there is sufficient smoke in the vicinity of the door to actuate a smoke detector, which could lead to the spread of fire, which could lead to damage to the building.

Intent 2:

To remove the permission to allow door release by means other than smoke detection [as stated in Clauses and (b)] in order to provide for prompt release in the case of certain doors.
