Fire-Tite® IMB fire rated door curtains are fire resistant doors constructed of galvanized steel insulated up to 7/8″ thick slats and can be finished with powder coating or baked enamel finishes. The metal on metal insulated slats have a 7/8″ thick fiberglass fireproof insulation. Each fire door is equipped with a 22 gauge steel hood formed to fit the contour of the end brackets. Durable ductile iron with 1/4″ semi-solid rivets, hot dipped end locks and wind locks are available. Our industrial fire rated door supports and brackets are all steel plates no less than 1/4″ thick. Alpine’s torsion counterbalance assembly for roll up fire doors is state of the art, providing maximum security and ease of use. The fire safe door may be interior mounted.
