Commercial Astragal and Flushbolt

Commercial Astragal

To properly label a 90-minute fire-rated wood double door, two crucial components are essential. A metal edge astragal serves as a critical part of the door’s overall fire resistance system. It helps maintain the integrity of the door assembly, preventing the spread of flames and smoke during a fire. This not only ensures safety but also complies with regulatory requirements.

Commercial Flushbolt

When dealing with hollow metal and fire-rated double doors, the commercial flushbolt is an indispensable accessory. This manually operated flushbolt measures 12 inches in length and is designed for installation on the inactive door leaf. Its primary function is to securely fasten the inactive door, enhancing overall security and fire safety. Available in a range of finishes, the commercial flushbolt is a versatile choice for various door designs. The most common finishes are US10B and US26D.
