Commercial fire rated doors are widely recognized as the best value in the door industry. Most steel doors outlast their wood counterparts by over 10 years, are better insulated, vandal resistant, and longer lasting than wood doors or fiberglass doors. These doors are most commonly used on the exteriors of a commercial building, and on fire rated openings as they are inexpensive, and can handle ratings up to 3 hours.
In interior spaces, fire-rated doors compartmentalize the building, preventing fire and smoke from rapidly spreading between rooms or different sections of a structure. This containment significantly delays the progress of a fire, providing occupants with a safer route to escape and allowing firefighters more time to bring the situation under control. Additionally, fire-rated doors often incorporate intumescent seals that expand when exposed to heat, creating a barrier against smoke infiltration even before the door itself is exposed to fire. This feature is crucial in maintaining visibility and breathable air within escape routes, enhancing the chances of safe evacuation.
For exterior use, fire-rated doors act as a line of defense against fires originating from outside the building. These doors are particularly important in structures located in close proximity to one another, such as in urban areas or multi-unit housing complexes. By preventing fire from entering a building from the outside, these doors safeguard the occupants and their belongings. Moreover, fire-rated doors for exterior use are built to withstand harsh weather conditions, maintaining their integrity even when exposed to rain, wind, and extreme temperatures.
