What Is a Fire-Rated Door?

A fire-rated door or counter shutter is a barrier designed to prevent flames or hazardous smoke from spreading during a fire. These doors have ratings based on how long they are proven to withstand a fire. You can order Cookson steel roll-up doors with fire ratings of 45 minutes, 90 minutes, three hours or four hours.

Our fire-rated and smoke-rated products include:

  • SmokeShield® Elevator Shaft Smoke CurtainThe most design adaptable option in the industry, SmokeShield Elevator is a hoistway smoke enclosure that eliminates the IBC elevator lobby requirement.
  • Roll-up fire doors: In the event of a fire, limiting property damage and protecting life has never been so easy than with Cookson roll-up fire doors. These rated structural fire barriers are designed to stop the spreading of fire and smoke, keeping the event isolated by compartmentalizing specific spaces within the building.
  • Firemiser™ Insulated Rolling Fire Door: This door is perfect for a building's exterior but can be expanded later. Installing a fire door in areas that need climate control is not an issue either, as our Firemiser™ roll-up fire doors offer an insulated core that increases energy efficiency. When you need to protect points of egress and wall openings, Cookson counter fire doors are the perfect solution.
  • Counter fire door: Rolling fire-rated counter shutters close automatically during a fire for the protection of wall openings. Commercial fire shutters can also provide function daily as added security.
  • Fire-rated closing systems: When it comes to fire-rated closing systems, Cookson’s advanced engineering, technology and design patents make it one of the world’s leading manufacturers. Fire-rated manual door operators are best-suited for counter shutters that are not used frequently or are too small for a motor operator. Motor operators are durable, long-lasting and compatible with the main controls of your building for ease-of-use.
  • Auto-Test™ Fire Door Product Systems: Our fire-rated doors will actuate all fire doors to close when connected to fire detection devices, smoke detectors or building alarm systems. Cookson Auto-Test™ Fire Door Products Systems activate through signals sent by smoke detectors or building alarms.
