    • Reorganized for consistency with NFPA 80, Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives, the 2016 NFPA 105 offers expanded coverage of multiple types of smoke door assemblies and other opening protectives.
    • Revised and renumbered Chapter 5 provides expanded coverage of inspection, testing, and maintenance for different types of smoke doors and three types of testing; operational, acceptance, and periodic.
    • New Chapter 6 presents the first door-specific installation criteria for swinging door assemblies, and new specific language addressing both fire-rated and non-fire-rated smoke door assemblies.
    • Revised provisions for ITM of smoke dampers include new step-by-step provisions for testing and maintenance.
    • New Chapter 8 provides new language on installation, inspection, testing, and maintenance of smoke protective curtain assemblies.

    Smoke kills people and damages buildings during a fire.
