fire door specifications
Sun Mountain is licensed to both manufacture and pre-hang fire-rated wood doors in a number of different species and panel configurations. 20-minute, 45-minute, 60-minute, and 90-minute fire ratings are all available to fit your particular construction project and code requirements. All of our fire-rated doors meet UL 10C/NFPA 252 for both positive pressure and negative pressure test requirements. In additiona, all of our fire-rated doors are Category “A”, meaning no additional edge-sealing system is required on the door jambs. All doors are eligible to bear the "S" (for Smoke & Draft Control assemblies) if a listed "Category H - Smoke & Draft Control Gasket" has been applied to the assembly. Both single swing or double swing pairs of doors are available. In addition, for all ratings except 90-minute, listed wood fire-rated jambs are available as well.

Mortised manual and automatic flush bolts and automatic door bottoms are also available.

Per NFPA 80, job site modifications for fire rated frames are restricted to the following:

If needed, the bottom of each frame leg may be trimmed to fit the rough opening.
