THE MOORE-WILSON SIGNALING REPORT
---------------------------------

Question #1207
--------------

A building owner for whom we provide fire alarm system service has asked us to
retrofit some door hold open appliances. Do we have to install smoke detectors
on both sides of each door?

Answer
------

NFPA 72-2002, National Fire Alarm Code, Section 5.14.6 covers the requirements
for smoke detectors for door release service. If you have the rooms on both
sides equipped with properly spaced smoke detectors, you may use these open area
detectors to release the door hold open appliances. If you must install specific
detectors to release the door hold open appliances, and if the door release must
respond to smoke flowing in either direction, then subsections 5.14.6.5.1.1
through 5.14.6.5.1.4 offer requirements. If the depth of wall section above the
door does not exceed 24 inches, then you may install only one detector on one
side of the door. If the depth of wall section above the door exceeds 24 inches
on one side only, then you may install only one smoke detector on the higher
side of the doorway. If the depth of wall section above the door exceeds 24
inches on both sides, you must install two smoke detectors, one on each side of
the doorway. You may also use a smoke detector specifically listed for door
frame mounting, or a listed combination or integral smoke detector-door closer,
regardless of the depth of the wall section above the door. In addition, if you
intend to prevent smoke transmission from one direction only, then you may
install only one smoke detector on the side from which you expect smoke
transmission, regardless of the depth of wall section above either side of the
door. Or, you may use a smoke detector listed for door frame mounting, or a
combination or integral smoke detector-door closer. Refer to Figure 5.14.6.5.1.1
for a graphic summary of these requirements.
