Do you have questions about fire doors? A fire door is designed to hold back a fire for a certain period of time, typically around 30 minutes to an hour. This gives time for the building’s occupants to get out before the fire spreads outside of the room where it started.
A fire door is more than just a door. It also is a frame, lock, latch and a variety of seals. Most existing frames are not suitable to serve as fire door frames. A fire door professional should evaluate the door frame to see if it can function as a fire door frame.
When a qualified professional tackles the job, it takes between 2 and 2.5 hours for fire door installation.
No, not all doors are fire-rated. To know if a door is fire-rated, look for a label with UL or WH listed on the door. This indicates a fire-rated door.
Many steel doors are fire-rated, but not all. The entire door and frame need to be fire-rated to provide adequate protection. Fire-rated steel doors also must be self-closing and positive latching. Steel fire-rated doors can be rated for up to three hours of fire protection.
Yes, some wood doors can be fire-rated for 20 to 90 minutes of fire protection. This provides homeowners with the chance to add fire protection to their homes.
Yes, the frame is part of what creates fire protection for a fire door. To be fire-rated, the door and frame must work together to prevent a fire from spreading.
