Interior Residential Fire Rated Doors

5 Replies

Does anybody have any knowledge/experience with purchasing and installing fire rated doors for a small multifamily (2-4 units)?  I just purchased a triplex in Lincoln, NE and am doing some minor repairs myself. One of the repairs required by code is that the entrance doors for each of the units need to be at least 60-minute fire rated, but I am having trouble finding a store that supplies this for an interior wood door. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Don't feel limited to what the big box stores have listed on their websites. All of these big players have internal sales people that have access to many more products than what they offer to the public. Use it as an opportunity to build a long term relationship. The last real estate investor/developer I worked with had a long standing relationship with one of the big box stores, and the savings we got off of the retail price would blow your mind.
