Fib-R-Dor and Fib-R-Lite Certifications:

Fib-R-Dor and Fib-R-Lite doors are designed for interior and exterior applications and when required can be equipped with labels to meet fire and storm rating requirements.

Fib-R-Dor and Fib-R-Lite perform to the following standards:

Cycle Test

At 3 million cycles and counting, Fib-R-Dor has far surpassed the ANSI One Million Cycle Test.

AAMA 920-03 > Specification for operating cycle performance of side-hinged exterior door systems.

NWWDA TM-7 > Physical endurance of wood doors & associated hardware under accelerated operating conditions.

ANSI A250.4-2001 > Criteria for physical endurance for steel doors, frames, frame anchors, & hardware reinforcement.


Tests in tensile, compression, flexural strength and more.

ASTM D638 > Tensile strength LW

ASTM C365 > Compressive strength LW

ASTM D790 > Flexural strength LW

ASTM E 84 > Surface burning characteristics

ASTM D792 > Density

ASTM D696 > Expansion LW

ASTM D 635 > Horizontal position burn rate, extent and time

ASTM C 518 > Steady state thermal transmission properties by means of the heat flow meter apparatus

ASTM C177 > Thermal conductivity PF

ASTM E84 > Tunnel Test

ASTM D 882 > Tensile strength

ASTM D 790 > Flexural strength

Fire Rated Fiberglass Doors

Fib-R-Dor and Fib-R-Lite door systems have been tested and approved for both neutral and positive pressure by Intertek Testing Services. All three door systems are available with 20/45/60 and 90 minute labels by Warnock-Hersey with UBC 7-2-1997 and UL 10c NFPA 252 for positive pressure fire rated doors. Under positive pressure, the test is performed with the neutral plane 40” above the floor. This method causes hot gases to be forced out around the edge of the door, making it easier for flames to transfer to the outer door and surface. To prevent flames from transferring, Chase’s fiberglass fire door utilizes intumescent seals. Intumescent seals expand under heat, filling the gap between the door and frame. The intumescent seals can be molded in during the manufacturing process (UL 10c-A) or surface applied (UL 10c-B).

UBC-7-2-1997 > Positive Pressure

UL 10b > Neutral Pressure

UL 10c NFPA 252 > Positive Pressure

UL 10c-A > Positive Pressure w/ Concealed Intumescent

UL 10c-B > Positive Pressure w/ Surface Applied Intumescent

Storm Rated Fiberglass Doors - Impact Test

Fib-R-Dor and Fib-R-Lite doors have received the Florida Building Code (FBC) approval for installation in high velocity wind zones. All three doors meet and exceed the standards set forth for large missile impact (ASTM-E1886/1996 missile level D), both positive and negative cycle pressure and wind load. Fib-R-Max has also received Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) approval for installation in high wind coastal areas.

High Velocity Zones Wind Pressure 70+/- PSF

TAS 201 > Large Missile Impact

TAS 202 > Uniform static air pressure

TAS 203 > Cycle Wind Pressure load
