Fire Rated Doors

Fire rated doors and frames play a vital role in keeping people safe and minimizing property damage during a fire. Hollow metal doors are excellent at limiting the danger and damage of fires. In fact, hollow metal is the only material widely available with a 3-hour rating.

SDI manufacturers also offer temperature rise doors, which minimize the transfer of heat to the cooler side of the door. These doors are commonly found in stairwells of high-rise buildings because they allow people to safely pass below the floors with fire.

SDI members are committed to providing technical information in varying detail on fire rated doors and frames. The resources below are ordered from broadest to most technical.
