Fire doors are manufactured for safety, but they can also contribute to your business’ efficiency, productivity, and usability. There are a number of fire doors on the market, each with its own benefits and applications. If you’re a business owner, you can’t afford to not put one of these doors into action. Safety regulations require them in many settings, and even if they aren’t required, they can still greatly impact your building’s functionality. Check out the following types of fire doors, and then contact a garage door expert to choose the one that’s right for you.


Model 570

For the food service industry, consider Wayne Dalton's Model 570. With an attractive steel shutter, 16-gauge frame, and 14-gauge sills, the Model 570 integral frame fire counter shutter is an excellent choice for restaurants, school cafeterias, and public food courts. The 570's flat slats provide a secure fit as well as enhanced aesthetics. This model installs easily to keep your business running on schedule. It comes with a number of safety options including a smoke seal, smoke detectors, and locking mechanisms and combines clean design with exquisite efficiency.


Suggested application: food service


Models 540 and 550

For larger applications, consider Wayne Dalton’s FireStar Models 540 and 550. These units have met the requirements of well known agencies including Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual. Models 540 and 550 provide certified and labeled fire protection for your property. They are easy to use and function smoothly to become a seamless part of your company’s day-to-day operation. Models 540 and 550 conform to NFPA Standard 80.
