Fire Door Importance
Sep 03, 2018

The emphasis on life safety and property protection has never been greater than it is today. Doors play a very important role in the fire resistance of a building; they allow people to evacuate safely from a building along with limiting the spread of fire and smoke to other areas.

Fire doors provide the following functions:

  • Provide safe egress from a fire area      during a fire

  • Inhibit the fire from spreading throughout      the building

  • Protect life and property by reducing      smoke hazards

  • Serve as a regular door pathway at all      times

GH provides a comprehensive line of 1 3/4" thick labeled doors and frames to meet all requirements for fire protection. All GH doors and frames have been fire tested in accordance with UL 10B, UL 10C, UBC 7-2, and ASTM E-152 and are all produced under Underwriters Laboratories and Warnock Hersey/ITS factory inspection and labeling service program.
