Fire doors are an important part of any passive fire safety plan. These doors are UL- and FM-approved as fire-resistant, helping to minimize the spread of a fire to reduce structural damage and provide a layer of safety for personnel and patrons. In the event of a fire, many fire doors are constructed to close off immediately in order to stop the flames before they reach further into your commercial structure.

A fire-rated door is designed to slow the spread of fire and smoke from one room to another for a specified period of time. Fire doors can be rated for anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours or longer, after which they may fail and allow fire to spread. The purpose of a fire-rated door is to slow the spread of fire to allow for safe evacuation.
Commercial fire-rated doors are required in areas that separate a commercial building into different fire protection zones to slow the spread of fire. In a 4-hour fire-rated wall, a 3-hour fire-rated door will be required, and in a 1-hour fire-rated wall, a 1-hour fire-rated door will be required. 90-minute fire-rated doors are required in openings to stairwells and other exits, while 45-minute or 20-minute fire-rated doors may be used in less critical areas like room partitions or residential entryways. Automatic fire doors or a fire-rated garage entry door may be required in certain areas like receiving docks, garages, or retail storefronts where roll-up doors are installed or there is a separate door for employee access.
Not all steel doors are fire-rated. To be fire-rated, not only the door but also the surrounding door frame and jamb must be resistant to fire. Fire-rated doors will be clearly labeled and they will indicate a time rating.
Yes, there are many types of fire-rated doors, including wood doors. Dense natural and engineered woods like MDF can be quite resistant to fire, with some wood doors receiving up to 90-minute fire ratings.
A fire-rated door will have an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Warnock Hersey (WH) tag affixed to it, usually in an area that is easy to see. Both use a circular logo with the initials UL or WH, and the tag will indicate the door’s fire rating in minutes or hours.
