Lumber and Doors are Vital Elements

When it comes to building safety and functionality, fire-rated lumber and commercial doors are vital elements. Fire-rated lumber helps to slow the spread of fire. Well-placed metal, wood, or fire-rated doors provide easy access and quick exits, as well as ensuring privacy and security.

The Role of Fire-Rated Lumber

Pyro-Guard and other fire-rated lumber must meet the flame spread requirements of all building codes as set by the Underwriters Laboratories in the extended 30-minute duration of ASTM E-84, “Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials.”

When used with fire-rated insulation, firestop, and fire barrier products, contractors can significantly improve a commercial construction project’s safety and quality.

Commerical Doors for Every Application

Metro also carries a wide selection of commercial doors and hardware from leading brands such as Elmdor®, AllegionTM, and ASSA ABLOY, including fire-rated doors. Whether you’re looking for metal, architectural wood, steel doors, access doors, or hatches, Metro carries the commercial solution that’s right for your build.
