NFPA recently posted the video of a webinar that answers some questions about clearances around fire door and smoke door assemblies.  The webinar was conducted by Keith Pardoe of Pardoe Consulting and Drew Martin of ARUP.

You might be thinking that the required clearance on a fire door is a pretty cut-and-dried issue, but there have been changes in the last 10 years that have left some things open to interpretation, as well as modifications to the 2016 edition of NFPA 80 which will be referenced by the 2018 model codes.

I’m working on a summary of the points covered in the video (it’s here!), but for those of you who want to hear it straight from the presenters, you can view the full webinar video here:
