Are Fail Safe strikes fire rated?


All HES and Folger Adam strikes are fire rated in Fail Secure operation only. By definition a fail safe strike cannot be fire rated. Some Fire Marshalls may require a Fail Safe strike, but this does mean they require a fire rated fail safe strike.

My door has a fire-rating label, but my frame does not. Do I have to use a fire-rated strike?


Unless both the door and frame are tagged with a fire label, the opening is not truly fire rated. Please check with the designated authority on your project to determine whether fire-rated equipment is required.

Can I install a fire rated strike without having the opening re-certified?


If any modification larger than a ¾” hole is made to the door/frame it must be recertified. Please check with your designated project authority for guidance. Please note that the HES 8300 fire rated strike is NFP80 compliant and does not require a hole to be cut in the frame.

Can HES provide me with a certification sheet for a fire rated opening?


Once a frame has been modified it must be re-certified by an independent agency. Please consult with your designated project authority.
