NFPA-252(12): Standard Methods of Fire Tests of Door Assemblies
Evaluate the ability of fire doors to resist the passage of flame, heat, and gases with the latest testing provisions in the 2012 NFPA 252.

This standard safeguards lives and property by outlining methods of fire testing door assemblies that testing laboratories and manufacturers can use to determine the degree of fire protection provided by such assemblies and assess their suitability when fire resistance of a specific duration is required.

Revised to include updated references, the 2012 NFPA 252: Standard Methods of Fire Tests of Door Assemblies outlines methods of fire testing door assemblies that testing laboratories and manufacturers can use to determine assembly suitability when fire resistance of a specific duration is required. The Standard allows different fire door assemblies to be compared with each other in order to evaluate their relative performance as measured against a standard fire experience. (Softbound, Approx. 15 pp., 2012)

Provisions prescribe standardized fire and hose stream test procedures that apply to fire door assemblies intended to be used to retard the spread of fire (flame, heat, and hot gases) through door openings in fire-resistive walls. The Standard allows different fire door assemblies to be compared with each other in order to evaluate their relative performance as measured against a standard fire experience.
