2014 Fl Bldg Code
R302.5.1 Opening protection.
…Other openings between the garage and residence shall be equipped with solid wood doors not less than 1 3/8 inches thick, or 20 minute fire-rated doors, equipped with a self-closing device.
Is anyone else calling this out on reports?
DISCLAIMER: I don’t quote code but I call out the lack of self-closing hinges on homes that fall under this code and add the lack of a sealed door frame to prevents potential automotive exhaust fumes from entering the living space. NOW… I don’t have a full copy of the building code but is anyone else calling this out or have info I’m not aware of? I checked Hillsborough County building code and found no mention of this so I’m guessing they follow the Fl Building Code unless otherwise mentioned. Is there another link I haven’t come across to clear this up for my county’s jurisdiction for building codes?
Thanks for any help you guys can provide.
