Reeb® has transitioned to new fire labels in order to meet the current industry standard required by Intertek.
20-Minute Fire Labels
The 20-minute fire labels, which are made of a metal material, now indicate both the pressure rating (neutral and positive) and the hose stream rating (with or without).
- The 20-minute neutral pressure without hose stream label is applied to the Therma-Tru fiberglass fire doors, the Therma-Tru steel fire Doors, and the residential flush 20-minute fire doors.
- The 20-minute neutral pressure with hose stream label is applied to the Simpson fire doors and to the Steves molded fire doors.
- The 20-minute positive pressure without hose stream label is applied to the ABS SCL core flush doors, Therma-Tru doorsa, and the RSP Primed 20-minute 1 Panel Flat doors fire doors.
- The 20-minute positive pressure with hose stream label is applied to the Simpson fire doors and the RSP Primed 20-minute doors (except 1 Panel Flat).
Hose Stream Test
After a door goes through the 20-minute burn test, the door is hit with cold water that is the pressure of a fire hose.
If after this, the door remains intact and locked in the frame, it passes and will have the with hose stream label. Otherwise the door will need the without hose stream label.
90-Minute Fire Labels
The 90-minute fire labels, which are made of a mylar material, transitioned to a new looking label. Nothing with the doors or process is changing.
- The 90-minute neutral pressure is applied to the RSP 24 Gauge Steel Edge 90-minute Doors fire doors.
- The 90-minute positive pressure is applied to the Hollow Metal 90-minute and RSP 22 Gauge Steel Edge 90-minute Doors fire doors.
The RSP primed fire doors will continue to be labeled as they have been. The commercial fire doors will not change at this time.
