CCIS

     We have recently started a new department that specializes in Coring fire rated doors and relabeling them in the field. This service can help you when you are tasked with retrofitting existing doors that have enhanced features such as: access control panels and electrified hardware. Field modifications made to a factory original door or frame may void the fire rating which is a great liability for any security integrator to carry, and we understand your need to limit this liability.

 

 

 

 

 

     Our technicians are trained and certified to do  The Perfect Raceway so that we are able to modify doors while retaining their fire resistance rating in the field using a specialized patented drilling tool. This tool drills a raceway through a door without voiding the fire rating. In addition to proper use of the drilling tool, we are trained on applicable code requirements, and how to properly identify a door after installation of The Perfect Raceway. Our field technicians have the ability to apply a Warnock Hersey label, which is recognized by an Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) of being modified by a Certified Installer who has completed the Perfect Raceway Program. An advantage of drilling fire rated doors in the field would be to save time and money by hiring us to drill your raceways in fire rate doors onsite. Our certified installers can provide same day service , eliminating the need for subsequent field inspections.
