Fire doors are an added layer of protection for people and property—manufactured to resist flames and hold back fire. They are required by most building codes—particularly for multi-family homes like apartments and condos—but they are a smart safety precaution for any setting. These doors have a rating number that correlates to how long they can keep a fire from spreading. Therma-Tru fire doors from Weather Tight come with ratings as high as 90 minutes. A cement-like core and steel outer construction allow these doors to resist flames and remain stable, even in temperatures up to 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit.
Fire Doors Stop Flames in Their Tracks
House fires are devastating, but a fire door can minimize damage. It looks and functions just like a regular door, but acts as a barrier between main living areas and places fires often start—like a garage where fuel and chemicals are stored or a kitchen where accidents can happen.
The best part about fire-resistant Therma-Tru doors is they don’t sacrifice style for function. They’re designed with appearance in mind, so it’s easy to find an option that blends with your décor.
At Weather Tight, we know building codes and can recommend a door that both you and an inspector will approve of. Schedule a free consultation to have our experts help you find a fire door that will protect your family, and look good doing it.
