The GenShield Series is a temperature rise door designed to impede and limit heat transmission generated from a fire. The core’s excellent heat retardant characteristic protects the unexposed area thus allowing ample time for safe evacuation. In accordance to temperature rise standards, the unexposed door surface will reach a maximum of 250°F during the first 30 minutes of a fire and 450°F after 60 minutes. Standard doors are 1¾ in. (45 mm) thick and are available in 16, 18, and 20 gauge galvannealed steel.
GenShield Series fire labeled doors are approved by both Intertek Testing Services (ITS Warnock Hersey) and Underwriters Laboritories (UL) Fire Labeling Programs. Doors can be fire labeled for up to 3 hours and must be installed in an equivalent fire labeled frame with approved fire listed hardware. For fire labeling restrictions and limitations refer to Gensteel's Fire Labeling Guide for Hollow Metal Doors (see above product sheet).
