Pursuant to SDI Industry Alert document 127J-04 it is recommended that these coatings are not to be applied by the manufacturer but rather when the frame is ready to be installed.
They can be painted or they can be replaced, but all replacements of fire labels have to be done under a field service inspection.
See the CURRIES Technical Data Manual.
Yes. See wood door manufacturer for limitations on openings with hospital stops.
A fire ‘construction’ label may be applied under certain conditions when the frame size exceeds label limitations.
Yes, but we can obtain these approvals only on a project by project basis at present.
No modifications may be made in the field without a field inspection.
CURRIES doesn’t have a frame with a 2 hour fire rating. We have a frame with a 1-1/2 hour rating which is typically the frame that is used in a 2 hour drywall wall (verify with local jurisdiction).
No wood or other materials may be applied to our frame with a label.
The portion of the wall below the borrowed lite or half sidelite is considered a sill. It is noncombustible if it is constructed of fire resistant materials (e.g. concrete or masonry block).
It is located on the face of the panel.
Yes, but it must be filled by welding a metal filler back into place on the frame and then only by a licensed second location fire labeling distributor.
Bonderizing is a tradename for phosphatizing. CURRIES uses specialized equipment to apply an iron phosphatizing coating to the steel to improve paint adhesion and increase rust resistance.

We can specially prepare a door or frame for cladding, but we do not apply cladding. Cladding applied to fire labeled CURRIES door or frame voids the fire label.
Please call your CURRIES Customer Service Professional or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for these details.
The customer needs to supply the desired design pressure for each opening. Our product is tested to a maximum design pressure. The wind load is converted into a design pressure with adjustment factors for terrain, height above grade, importance factor, and opening location in the building. These may affect the design pressure by a factor of 4.
