Professional Fireproof Doors Installation

Replacing two multi-lock systems that were deemed a violation by the fire department.

Multi-lock systems are essentially doors that have four locks; on the top, bottom, and on both sides. This is dangerous in the event of a fire or other emergency because they are extremely difficult to open.

90-minute fire-rated

As a result, the technicians removed the doors of the two-family house and installed approved 90-minute fire-rated (fireproof) doors in their place. Now the doors are in line with the Fire Department’s code but still protect the premises from fire damage.

Replacing Fireproof Double Doors

The old fireproof double doors at the freight entrance of this nursing home were falling apart due to massive overuse with little to no maintenance.

What was the problem?

The door closer could not close the doors and the Maglock was not properly engaged with the doors. These two issues caused the doors to remain open, leaving the property exposed and susceptible to unauthorized entry.

How we solved it? 

To remedy the issue, we removed the old doors (one active door and one stationary door). Then, we furnished and installed new 90-minute fireproof doors and installed a new door closer.

Are all metal doors fire rated?
No! But fire-rated steel doors play a vital role in keeping people safe and minimizing property damage during a fire. Fireproof metal doors are an economical alternative to wood fire doors when more than a 20-minute rating is required. Steel is the sole door material to deliver a 3-hour fire-rating.

What are the panic hardware requirements in NYC?

Current codes require panic hardware to be mounted between 34 inches and 48 inches above the floor. Existing panic hardware may have been installed at other mounting locations in accordance with previous code requirements. A force of 15 pounds applied to the touch-pad or cross-bar must release the latch.

Are fire-rated doors required in commercial buildings?

Fire-rated doors are required in numerous areas of a commercial building. Fireproof metal doors can attain ratings up to 3 hours where wood fire doors can be rated up to 90 minutes.  90-minute doors are required in 2-hour rated wall openings to stairwells or elevator rooms.

Do fire-rated doors require a door closer?

Fire-rated doors must be provided with a door closer.
Fire protection of this type must have features such as fire integrity, thermal insulation, smoke tightness, access control, and sound insulation. In addition, they must be equipped with a door closer.

After

In New York City, fire-rated doors must adhere to strict regulations outlined by the NYC Building Code, FDNY regulations, and Local Law 58/09 (LL58/09). These regulations dictate requirements such as FDNY Certificate of Fitness for Fire Door Inspector, NYC Fire Code compliance, and adherence to the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) requirements. Ensuring compliance involves thorough inspections, following the NYC Fire Door Inspection Checklist, and obtaining necessary permits for installation or replacement. Fire-rated doors in NYC must also meet standards such as UL listing, NFPA compliance, and proper fire door construction techniques to provide effective passive fire protection. Violations of these regulations can result in penalties and the issuance of NYC Fire Door Violations, emphasizing the importance of maintaining fire safety through proper fire door maintenance and inspection protocols.
