Anatomy of a Fire Door (video)

Category: FDAI,Fire Doors,VideosLori @ 8:31 am Comments (19)

One of my original goals when I started this blog in 2009, was to make learning about codes less painful.  I think these whiteboard animation videos do just that!  Here’s the latest…all about fire door assemblies!

The rest of our whiteboard animation videos can be found on the Allegion Training page, or on the Videos page of

What other topics would you like to see addressed in future videos?

    I can use the video as a check list during inspections.

    And, don’t have to email my life line!!!

      I have a couple different checklists, so if there’s something that would help you, let me know and I’ll customize one for you!

    Thanks, it is just the little things that come up once a year.

    Like how much gap can there be between two doors.

    If they are not there on this site, maybe add a link to the forms you have?

    That is what I was trying to say

    AWESOME video! I cannot wait to share this with my workgroup! Nice job again Lori!

      I’m glad you like it! Our training dept. is responsible for getting the videos created…I’m just the “subject matter expert.” 🙂

    Suggestion for future video – Flush Bolts and Coordinators

    Is there a way I can download this video as a file?

    I would like to be able to later add subtitles (in Korean) for our clients, and I’d need a file in order to do so.

    Thanks, as always!

    P.S. Just curious but does the artist in the whiteboard videos work for us?

    • Lori says:

      Hi Tony – I forwarded your question to Peter Wilson. The artist does not work directly for us – we work with another company to product the videos. – Lori

    These white board videos are so good visually that one tends to miss out on the audio.

    I’m interested in a video or pictures showing the different re-enforcements that are added by manufacturers, to H/M frames and doors for different kinds of hardware installation

    • Lori says:

      I know there’s some information about reinforcements in the Steelcraft Tech Data manual, but I’ve never seen photos. If I find something I’ll definitely post it here.
