All the fire-rated doors must be self-closing, positive latching, and the frame and hardware must carry the appropriate fire label. The door you select will depend on the opening location and the wall it sits in. The site location is the primary factor in determining the requirement of the length of exposure based on the potential fire hazard. The table below is the opening classifications:
|Door Rating||Wall Rating||Description|
|3 Hour (180 Minutes)||4 Hour|
These in-wall openings separate buildings or divide a single building into various fire areas.
|1-1/2 Hour (90 Minutes)||2 Hour|
Often used in enclosures of vertical communication or egress through buildings, these types of openings include elevator shafts and stairwells. You can also expect them in boiler rooms or exterior walls with the potential for extreme fire exposure from the outside.
|1 Hour (60 Minutes)||1 Hour|
The occupancies in a building are divided by these door and frame assemblies.
|3/4 Hour (45 Minutes)||1 Hour|
These doors are used in a building with corridors or room partitions. They can be located in a building's exterior wall with the potential for moderate fire exposure from the outside.
|1/3 Hour (20 Minutes)||1 Hour|
These openings are located in corridors requiring smoke and draft control.
*All the above fire-protection ratings are tested and classified by International Building Code.
