Fire-Rated Access Doors

What is a Fire-Rated Access Door? 

A fire-rated access door is an access panel designed to help slow down the spread of fire and smoke for a limited time. These access doors undergo rigorous testing and are rated according to the amount of time they can withstand heat and flames before failing. As such, you'll commonly find these access doors constructed from a combination of steel, fiberglass, and other flame-resistant materials. Before buying, be sure to check the label for proof of certification.  

Benefits of Installing Fire-Rated Access Doors 

Fire-rated access panels do not stop fires and they are not designed to be completely fireproof. They will eventually burn through but play a vital role in protecting essential building components and providing easy access when these utilities require monitoring and maintenance.
