Fire Door Labeling

Labels identifying fire doors and instructing occupants to keep the doors shut at all times are to be placed on fire-rated doors that can be blocked open in violation of codes.  The following document explains the general locations where fire-rated doors are required based on the 2009 edition of the International Building Code (IBC) and the 2009 edition of the Life Safety Code (NFPA-101). Items are listed as a checklist for applying the labels.  Please note the conditions for which labels are not needed.
