fire-resistant door

Definition

Construction

  • A door designed to confine fire to one part of a structure, keeping it from spreading through an entire building. It may be a solid core wooden door, or one sheathed in metal, depending on the intended location. Doors are rated for the projected time they could be expected to perform their function during a fire. Most building codes require that the door between living quarters and a garage be fire resistant.
