Georgia-Pacific is the only major supplier of fire-rated door components that does not also manufacture its own fire doors. Instead, we concentrate on developing, testing, certification and manufacture of a full range of high-performance fire door components.
We test and obtain certification of wood composite fire doors for the United States and Canadian markets. In addition, our mineral core is approved for use in steel doors as an insulator.
Working principally with Intertek-ETL Semko so that doors built with our components can carry the Warnock Hersey label, our fire testing yields an extensive set of manufacturing and machining specifications.
These specifications are written, approved for engineering validity, and distributed by the testing authorities. They are made available at our discretion to door manufacturers that build their fire door programs around our components.
With the adoption of UBC 7-2 (1997),
STC Rated Door Assemblies
Select door assemblies with Georgia-Pacific mineral core and 3-ply high density cores, achieving 45- to 90-minute fire ratings, are also tested* to achieve a range of Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings. Refer to the quick reference chart for more information.
It is important that you consult the appropriate STC test report and Intertek listing report for complete assembly information and related information, including manufacturing and machining information.
Georgia-Pacific components have been used successfully in more than a dozen countries around the world. Though we do not actively test for certification outside North America, our international customers have been successful with fire door tests up to 120 minutes in England, the Middle East, Japan, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
Georgia-Pacific firedoor components are included in a number of assembly listings that have been tested in accordance with UL 10C and British Standard BS476, part 22. In addition, Georgia-Pacific firedoor components are eligible to carry the BM TRADA Q-Mark.
Our Cuba, Missouri manufacturing plant is ISO 9001:2000 certified.
*Tests per ASTM E 90 (2009) and ASTM E 413-04, were conducted in at Architectural Testing and Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories. Results are based on characteristics, properties and performance of materials and systems obtained under controlled test conditions. Actual results may vary.
