Inspecting and Maintaining Swinging Doors Handbook

ASHE Inspecting and Maintaining Swinging Doors Cover

Safe doors save lives.

The ultimate purpose of a door maintenance program is to ensure people can move through buildings safely, especially in an emergency. Although doors serve necessary security, convenience and temperature and cost control functions, these aspects are secondary to protecting people. Hospital door maintenance is closely scrutinized even as code requirements are regularly revised.

The Inspecting and Maintaining Swinging Doors Handbook translates into layman’s terms the codes and requirements for door safety in today’s hospitals. Valuable information and tips for keeping doors in safe working condition are provided, including rules for maintaining swinging door assemblies and a readily accessible list of questions to ask when selecting door assemblies.
