Our fire rated garage doors and shutters stop fire and smoke in its tracks. Our fire doors combine all the engineering expertise you have come to expect in our overhead rolling doors with the added benefit of fire resistance.

Fire-rated garage doors prevent the spread of smoke and fire by compartmentalizing a fire event quickly. They automatically close when triggered allowing adequate time for egress from a building. Fire-rated garage doors are manufactured for everyday use and are available with the same options, materials and finishes available on any overhead garage door.

What is a fire rated garage door?

  • Commercially engineered door that has been rated and UL listed to not let fire breach through for up to 4 hours.
  • Triggered to close and prevent fire and smoke from spreading.
  • Designed to protect the means of egress. 

Why use fire-rated doors?

Rooms and areas that have higher chances of fire events use fire-rated products. Improperly stored or combined combustible materials and solvents, many processes and manufacturing techniques or even accidents, poor craftsmanship or carelessness can lead to a fire event.
