Special-Lite Retrofit Framing Now Available for Those Requiring 90 Minute Fire Doors

Special-Lite® Retrofit Framing is now available for use in interior and exterior applications that require a 90-minute fire door. Special-Lite Retrofit Framing provides the function, appearance and easy maintenance of a new aluminum tube frame without a significant construction undertaking, providing facility managers a fast and economical way to complete entrance renovations that enhance the appearance and functionality of any entrance.

When existing framing can be returned to a presentable condition, Special-Lite 10-30 Series Insert Framing provides a means of returning door openings to a plumb and square condition to prepare the entrance for new doors. If existing framing is too deteriorated to leave exposed, the Special-Lite SL-70 Capping System can be used with the 10-30 Series Insert Frame to completely cover rusted or deteriorated framing.

The 10-30 Series Insert Framing (with or without the SL-70 Capping System) can be used with any Special-Lite® Fire-rated Doors when used in conjunction with an approved hollow metal frame. Tested in accordance with UBC 7-2, NFPA 252 and UL 10C requirements for interior applications, both products have passed the 1-1/2 hour positive pressure test, hose stream test, and 250 degrees Fahrenheit (121 degrees Celcius) temperature rise test to achieve Warnock Hersey listing for fire-rating applications in the United States.
