    Fire-rating certifications

    Our products meet the fire-rating standards defined by:

    • NFPA 80 "Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives"
    • UL 10C "Standard Positive Pressure Fire Tests of Door Assemblies"
    • NFPA 252 "Standard Methods of Fire Test of Door Assemblies"
    • NFPA 257 "Standard on Fire Test of Window and Glass Block Assemblies"
    • BS-476-22 British Standard : “Fire Resistance Test to Building Material – Non-loadbearing elements”

    Given our dedication to continuous innovation and new product development, DE LA FONTAINE felt it was important to have our own furnace to perform fire-rating tests on our product lines. Once product development is completed, the product undergoes a final official fire-rating test via an independent agency, Intertek Testing Services (ITS/Warnock Hersey).

    The document below summarizes the fire-rating standards attained by our products. Because we offer a wide range of products with various special considerations, please do not hesitate to contact us for more detailed information. (Available soon.)
