Fire Ratings

Grandoor Frames have been tested to address the full array of fire rated requirements including 20 minute, 45 minute, 60 minute, and 90 minute ratings. The frames meet UL10B, UL10C and NFPA standards. Jamb details and cut sheets for each rating can be found below. Since Grandoor Frames are built to order, customization and modifications on these details are an option.

The EDGE Series

Why be limited when designing a door? Much like a layering effect, Grandoor Frames now offers the EDGE Series, which allows for profiles to be added to the edge of the frame to complement the casing. The EDGE Series frames are available in non-rated & fire rated options and are a perfect way to punctuate any door opening such as unit entry doors at hotels, apartments, condos, and assisted living.

Options:

For Reference: Door is positioned here at the left-hand portion of the frame. ANY wood casing can be used on both sides of frame (Corridor and Interior sides). Casing is optional.

Transom/Sidelite

Certain situations call out for additional light between rooms, but had been faced with limitations should the opening need to be fire rated wood. Grandoor Frames now offers fire rated sidelites, transoms, and borrowed lites in both 20 minute ratings and 45 minute ratings. See our technical section for sizing options.

STC Sound Ratings

In our loud, “always on” society, SILENCE is truly golden, yet often unattainable. This noisy epidemic is partially due to the fact that the International Building Code (IBC) does not have requirements for minimizing noise through door frames – only walls, windows, etc. Without any requirements, the responsibility falls to astute architects, builders, and developers to ask the questions up front.

Grandoor Frames has independently tested our fire rated door frames with Architectural Testing Inc (Intertek). Our fire-rated wood frames achieved a remarkable STC 40 rating using basic Pemko seals. This is greater than most wood doors on the market today, assuring your desired STC level doesn’t slip through the cracks.

Oversized Frames

Need doorframes (fire rated or not) that are over 36″ in width or 96″ in height? No problem! Wide, tall, deep, and thick doorframes are a common occurrence with Grandoor Frames since we Build to Order. Whether it is a condo in NYC looking to create a 90 minute rated “grand” entrance (9’0 tall or higher), or a commercial application that has to meet ADA requirements, we’ve built it. Some general parameters to keep in mind.

FRAME WIDTH: Up to 48″ wide to accommodate doors

FRAME HEIGHTS: Up to 9’0″ tall and higher (call for details)

WALL FRAME DEPTH: 12″ – no maximum.

FRAME THICKNESS:  ¾” up to 3″ thick (and everything in between)

Concealed Closers

A commonly mentioned challenge by design teams of bespoke hotels, condos, senior living, and corporate interiors is the unsightliness of overhead closers on unit entry doors.

In response to their wishes, Grandoor Frames is proud to now offer the design community the ability to CONCEAL THE OVERHEAD CLOSER INSIDE the wood door frame!

Concealed Closer Fire Ratings: 20 minute, 45 minute, 60 minute, and 90 minute options
Wood Veneer Options:  available in both painted and assorted veneers.
Edge Detail: Available in Single Rabbet and Double Rabbet options (can be customized).
Hinge/Strike Legs:  Typically standard ¾” thick, but can be thicker to match frame header.

Machining Sheets

All our door frames are prepped for hardware. When submitting an order, please include a completed jamb machining sheet (our version below), or your standard machining sheet, along with templates for hardware being used.

Installation and Handling

When choosing a fire rated wood frame, one of the most important questions to ask is “How is it installed?” In other words, HOW is almost as important as WHAT. With easier installation and affordability in mind, Grandoor Frames ran our fire tests with a widely available metal angle bracket for installation. Installation is now as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. The angle bracket is simply screwed to the back of the frame.
  2.  It is then slid over the stud or drywall.
  3. Finally the angle bracket is screwed back to the stud. Angle bracket (if over sheetrock) can be covered with casing or spackled over. Installing a Grandoor Frame?
