JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
The fire alarm system connections for hold-open devices installed on fire doors pursuant to the Building Code, including hold-open devices provided for vertical exit enclosure doors pursuant to the exception to Section BC 708.7 of the Building Code, shall be inspected, tested and otherwise maintained in accordance with FC 703.2 and 907.20 and NFPA 72.

- the fire alarm system output programming, which automatically transmits a signal to release the hold-open devices upon activation of an automatic alarm initiating device or manual elevator recall;
- the circuitry for each hold-open device, which upon receipt of a manual or automatic signal, releases the door; and
- each automatic door closer, which, upon release of the door by the hold-open device, mechanically moves the door to its fully closed position.
