Restoring Fire-Rated Doors

When is it too late to replace your fire-rated doors? Building fires are something you must prepare for because they occur without warning. That’s why it is so important to ensure your fire doors are up-to-code and ready to do their job. But purchasing fire doors isn’t cheap and you don’t want to add new veneer over the existing without getting it re-tested to make certain you do not null the warranty. What other options do you have?

What Are Fire-Rated Doors?

Let’s back up real quick. First, we need to define what a fire door is and why they’re so important. Fire-rated doors are made to help prevent a fire from spreading quickly. They’re often made from solid timber and other flame-resistant materials such as glass and metal. Regular doors can quickly become engulfed and fuel the fire, but a fire-rated door will help slow the spread, giving the building inhabitants more time to escape. These doors are found in many commercial buildings, especially in hotels, schools, and office buildings.

Why Refinish?

Hotels and businesses tend to wait until these doors are completely worn down and then they pay thousands to have them replaced. Wehrli Furniture refinished these fire doors for a fraction of the cost of replacement.
