Functional Statement:

F40

To limit the level of contaminants.

F61

To resist the ingress of precipitation, water or moisture from the exterior or from the ground.

F42

To resist the entry of vermin and insects.

F51

To maintain appropriate air and surface temperatures.

F54

To limit drafts.

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.2

 

APPLICATION:

Exterior insulated steel doors, in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9].

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the performance of exterior insulated steel doors will fall significantly below expectations, which could lead to:
  • the ingress of airborne pollutants from the exterior,
  • infestation by insects or vermin,
  • precipitation ingress,
  • excessive heat transfer, or
  • excessive air infiltration or exfiltration.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the inadequate control of temperatures in interior spaces, or drafts,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of elements protected by doors.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces, and
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
