At Industrial Door Solutions, we offer a wide variety of fire-rated steel rolling door products for business and commercial spaces. All of our products meet fire safety standards and are designed to close automatically in case of a fire. Our rolling doors are also able to connect to existing fire alarm systems in conjunction with smoke detectors. Being smoke and air tested is one of the major selling points of our doors, and our clients are always satisfied with our quality installations and fair pricing. When there is an outbreak of a fire, our doors offer superior protection compared to other doors on the market. In addition, our doors can meet up to 3 Hr fire ratings which make our products very durable under extreme heat.
The Benefits of Fire Rated Rolling Steel Doors
The main benefit of our doors to our clients is fire protection and safety, making sure that property and personnel are protected from the flames and fumes of an active fire. Whenever a fire occurs, our doors activate and close from the ceiling to the floor to seal off the area where the fire is taking place, thus preventing the fire from spreading throughout the premises. In addition to saving lives, our doors protect property, supplies, products, sensitive documents, and potential widespread damage. An insulated fire is a good situation to have because the fire is contained due to our quality fire doors overhead. Our doors are designed to stop and slow down the spread of a fire from one area to another by isolating the fire until it gets drenched by the fire safety system or until local firefighters arrived.
Motor Operated and Durable
Having fire doors overhead means they can be operated in a variety of ways, such as “push-up” (standard), chain (optional), and motorized crank (optional). The push-up operated overhead rolling door is the best solution when the opening needs to be unobstructed most of the time, and the door is to be in the up position and will only close in the case of an active fire. In addition, the push-up door comes equipped with a set of fusible links that help the door to close in case of an emergency or a raging fire. Along with the already installed fire system, these doors can be made with many optional features such as powder coatings, stainless steel, and wind-rated for exterior openings.
Motor Operated Fire Rated doors work in conjunction with the fire system of the door. They have an easy reset fire system where no technical support is needed if the door drops in case of an emergency. Unlike the push-up doors where the whole system needs to be reassembled, these doors can automatically open after the fire system closes the door. They come standard in 120 volts but can come in 230 or 460 volts 3 phase (optional). In addition, a button with an Open/Close/Stop function is added for the operation of the door.
Costs and Installation of Steel Doors
Investing in an overhead door that is fireproof is one of the best fire safety solutions for businesses and commercial establishments. Costs and time of installation depend on the size, material, and labor needed to set up the overhead door. To cater to the exact needs of our clients, the height and width can be customized to fit various-sized openings throughout a building or warehouse area as required by the local fire code. Selecting a steel door is often the first choice by business owners and property managers because they offer superb control of smoke and fire situations. They also act as a service door for loading docks at distribution centers and extra security for employee entry and exit daily.
Requirements and Certifications
Whether it is a fireproof rolling door or rolling service doors, these types of doors are required to be evaluated by the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Like an overhead door, fire doors, and doors made of specialized steel, all of them need to pass specific criteria to ensure the doors can be operated safely. Before any of our doors begin working on your premise, we make sure the doors and the mechanism opening and closing the door are in good working order for smooth and hassle-free use.
Direct Application in High Traffic Areas
Our fire doors can be used in various spaces and properties that include warehouses, retail stores, schools, banks, hospitals, corporate offices, and large public buildings. Fire doors are a vital part of a property’s fire safety plan, and our clients know that to protect their business or building’s infrastructure from a potential hazard such as a raging fire, investing in fire doors is worthwhile. Some fire doors are designed to be closed at all times, while some are held open by using electromagnetic hardware wired to a building’s fire alarm system. For example, if the power cuts out or the fire alarm is activated, regardless of the situation, the magnet de-energizes, and the doors close on their own, leaving a tight and secure seal.
Protection for Businesses and Personnel
Our professional team has completed many projects for various clients that are satisfied with our work. We have confidence that we are providing the best quality product to our buyers and our standards are just as important. Doors made from steel stop fire right in its tracks saving property from damage and saving lives. Our advanced fire doors made from steel are designed to automatically activate your door in the event of a fire and the ensuing smoke.
One of the main reasons we recommend steel as the ideal material for our clients than any other material is that steel leaves a tight seal where fire and smoke cannot escape or permeate through, allowing any occupants to evacuate safely. As a result, our rolling fire-rated doors have become a reliable choice for property owners who want the highest level of safety and fire protection available.
