High-Security Fire Doors

Most importantly, fire doors must stay closed in the event of a fire. As such, properly operating fire doors are a key component to stop the spread of deadly fire, smoke, and toxic fumes and gases.

Fire rated doors that are used on a day-to-day basis increases the likelihood of wear and tear and malfunction. Therefore, keeping these doors under regular maintenance is very important. In some cases, inspection is also required.

Laches & Locks

An automatic latching mechanism must be included on an automatic latching mechanism. All hardware needs to be fire listed as well. This includes push bars, exit devices, lever handles, and doorknobs.

Fire rated double doors require a listed flush bolt on the inactive leaf or fire vertical exit devices on both leaves.

Life Safety Code

Fire-rated doors are an integral part of a building’s overall fire protection. As a result, fireproof doors are required throughout rated openings since they are included in the language of the Life Safety Code, NFPA 80 and the International Building Code.

Fire Rated Door Closers

Closer-Holders help stop the spread of fire by closing fire and smoke rated doors when power is interrupted by a fire alarm condition or remote release switch. Hinges with steel bearings or door closers are required at all fire rated openings since fire-rated doors must remain closed at all times (which entails a self-closing mechanism).

Fire Rated Door Panic Device

Fire Exit Hardware is an exit device that is tested for both panic and fire conditions. This device must be used on fire doors where panic hardware is required by code or is desired for durability and safety.

Additional Information Regarding Fire Rated Door Panic Devices

Since fire doors require positive-latching, fire exit hardware does not incorporate mechanical dogging.  If a push/pull function is desired for a fire door, electric latch retraction hardware may be installed, as long as the latch projects automatically upon fire alarm activation.

Fire Alarm Automatic Door Release

Maintain the safety and security of your establishment by installing exit door emergency alarm and lock. This alarm will work with left- or right-handed doors and includes a cover lock to protect the alarm from being disabled. Furthermore, the lock prevents unauthorized entry into your building from the outside, and the bolt assembly is saw-resistant to deter tampering. 

A highly visible red sign indicates the location of the emergency exit, and a high decibel alarm is activated when the exit door is opened from the inside. For convenience, the alarm does not need to be hardwired and runs on the included 9V battery. Protect your business, staff, and guests by installing an exit door alarm. Cylinder locks are required to enable door lock and to arm or disarm the alarm.

Door Requirements
  • Fire doors are typically rated for three-fourths of the rating of the surrounding wall, for example, A 3-hour door is used in a 4-hour rated wall; a 1/2-hour fire door is used in a 2-hour rated wall, and a 3/4-hour door is used in a one-hour rated wall. 
  • However, a door with a higher fire rating than the opening requires may also be used. For example, a door rated for 3 hours may be used in a 1-1/2 hour opening. In addition, all requirements for the 3-hour rating, such as the maximum glass size, door size and other restrictions for the higher rated door, must be met.

  1. No open holes or breaks exist in surfaces of either the door or frame.
  2. Glazing, vision light frames & glazing beads are intact and securely fastened in place, if so equipped.
  3. The door, frame, hinges, hardware, and noncombustible threshold are secured, aligned, and in working order with no visible signs of damage.
  4. No parts are missing or broken.
  5. Door clearances at the door edge of the door frame, on the pull side of the door, do not exceed clearances listed in 4.8.4 (the clearance under the bottom of the door shall be a maximum of 3/4″) and 6.3.1 (top & edges 1/8″).
  6. The self‐closing device is operational; that is, the active door completely closes when operated from the full open position.
  7. If a coordinator is installed, the inactive leaf closes before the active leaf.
  8. Latching hardware operates and secures the door when it is in the closed position.
  9. Auxiliary hardware items that interfere or prohibit operation are not installed on the door or frame.
  10. No field modifications to the door assembly have been performed that void the label.
  11. Gasketing and edge seals, where required, are inspected to verify their presence and integrity.

Your fire doors must be tested every year (as required by the NFPA) to remain in compliance and optimize safety. Don’t wait for an accident or safety issue to arise. Ensure that your facility’s fire doors work properly by verifying that all of the above-mentioned items are inspected and repaired if necessary.
