Do I need to install fire-rated doors?
Whether or not you need fire-rated doors in your home or commercial property will depend on the local building codes, the property type, and your personal preferences. The team at Automatic Doors West Palm Beach can talk through the options if you need advice, or you can have an architect review your property to assess the need for upgraded doors at the same time as you carry out any other renovations.
How do I select fire-rated doors?
Fire-rated doors come with a rating that shows how long the door should be able to stand up to heat and smoke in an average fire. Doors are built to last from 20 minutes, right up to 3 hours, and are clearly labeled to help you see and understand the type of door you’re dealing with. The different grades of the door are recommended for use in different locations around a home or commercial property. You might use a 90-minute door in a stairwell, for example, while the most robust 180-minute door is usually used in walls that separate buildings
