No lock or fastening shall be permitted that prevents free escape from the inside of any building other than in health care occupancies and detention and correctional occupancies where staff are continually on duty and effective provisions are made to remove occupants in case of fire or other emergency.

2 Electronic Locking and Exemption Request Form Training What are we going to cover today? Basic use of The Life Safety code to determine requirements. Basic Locking requirements of NFPA 101 core and occupancy chapters Minimum Requirements of compliant locking systems as defined by: NFPA 101: Delayed-Egress Locking NFPA 101: Access-Controlled Egress Doors. Submittal for the installation and the interconnection of the locking system with approved fire alarm and sprinkler systems as required by the above sections of the code.
