We all know that fire safety is paramount in commercial buildings. One major way to increase safety is with fire-rated doors. A number of building codes require the installation of these doors in areas where occupants are more likely to encounter danger or would be more vulnerable if they were trapped by the spread of a fire.
A common misconception is that all fire-rated doors are made out of metal, but this isn’t the case. When it comes to commercial buildings, there are three main types: metal, glass, and combination (metal-clad). Each has its own advantages, depending on the needs of the building in question.
Commercial Fire-rated doors made out of metal are currently the most popular option. These doors are typically divided into two categories: fire doors and smoke doors. A fire door is constructed with a layer of fire-resistant material, providing protection from the spread of flames. Smoke doors are normally framed around the glass with a small glass area that can be opened in case it is needed. This type may be used to provide access through smoke and access to an exit without risk for fire spread or to provide access through smoke and access to an exit without risk for fire spread or to provide access through smoke and limited flame spread in case of a fire evacuation.
Commercial Fire-rated doors made out of glass can be used to enhance the design of a building without compromising the fire safety requirements. These doors are ideal for office buildings, retail stores, and shopping malls because they can be custom designed with decorative glass, which provides visual interest.
Canuck Door Systems is a dealer of Fire Rated Door manufacturers in Ontario, such as the Daybar.
Combination fire-rated doors are basically one door that offers both fire and smoke protection. They are most often found in offices but can also be found in clothing stores, restaurants, or hotels. These doors are typically constructed with insulating panels so that heat doesn’t enter the room, but they provide an escape route if there is a fire inside.
