Fire rated doors with the correct hardware and accessories are critical components of maintaining a fire within a structure. The ability for fire rated doors to resist the passage of fire and smoke while complying with NFPA standards is affected by the clearances and holes and breaks around the perimeter of fire rated doors. Active Fire Door Products provide hardware and accessories for excessive clearances up to 90 minutes for steel and wood fire rated doors and frames in accordance with NFPA requirements.
