USE AND INSTALLATION

This category covers rolling steel fire doors, which consist of interlocking galvanized or stainless steel slats, bottom bar, wall guides, barrel assembly, automatic-release device, governor, and counterbalance mechanism. The doors may be provided with a motor-drive assembly that does not interfere with the manual or automatic (fusible link, other fixed-temperature release, or a rate-of-rise temperature release) closing of the door.

Rolling steel fire doors are intended to be installed in accordance with ANSI/NFPA 80, "Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives."

Rolling steel fire doors are intended to be installed in concrete and masonry walls, unless otherwise noted in the individual certifications. The doors are intended to be installed in accordance with the installation instructions provided with each assembly.

Rolling steel fire doors intended to be installed as service-counter doors may be installed with either a masonry sill or a factory-built countertop as described in Miscellaneous Fire Door Accessories (GVUX). For service-counter doors of the rolling type, see Service-counter-type Fire Doors (GSWT).

Authorities Having Jurisdiction should be consulted before installation.

SIZES

The maximum size of a rolling steel fire door that has been subjected to a fire test is intended for an opening not exceeding 152 sq ft in area, with no dimension exceeding 13 ft 6 in. Rolling steel fire doors intended for openings not exceeding 152 sq ft in area and with no dimension exceeding 13 ft 6 in. are marked "Rolling Steel Fire Door."

Rolling steel fire doors exceeding these maximum dimensions and manufactured in compliance (except for size) with UL's requirements for design, materials and construction are marked "Oversized Rolling Steel Fire Door." Oversized doors are not certified as to temperature transmission. Authorities Having Jurisdiction should be consulted as to whether the assembly is acceptable for a specific location.

GLAZING

Rolling steel fire doors may be provided with glass lights, as indicated in the individual certifications. See Fire-protection-rated Glazing Materials (KCMZ).

BOTTOM BAR REPLACEMENT

The bottom bar of rolling steel fire doors is subject to damage from everyday use and occasionally the damage warrants replacement of the bottom bar. When the Classification Mark is attached to the bottom bar, the following method is authorized for replacement of the bottom bar. When acceptable to the Authority Having Jurisdiction, the Classification Mark may be removed from the bottom bar and returned to the door manufacturer along with a request for a new bottom bar. The door manufacturer is authorized to provide a replacement bottom bar for field installation with a Classification Mark that reads "Replacement Part for Rolling Fire Door" or "Replacement Part for Oversized Rolling Fire Door." The Classification Mark also includes the UL symbol, the word "CLASSIFIED" above the UL symbol (as illustrated in the Introduction of this Directory), a serial number, and a fire rating equal to that of the original Classification Mark that was returned to the manufacturer.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

For additional information, see Fire Doors (GSNV) and Fire-resistance Ratings (BXRH).
