BASF Meets Fire Door Listing Requirements Issued by QAI

BASF Palusol SW sandwich panels meet fire door listing requirements issued by the Quality Auditing Institute Ltd. (QAI). The QAI listings, which include Palusol SW door cores, edge-sealing systems and hardware, confirm 20 to 90 minute fire resistance for wooden fire door slabs and frames. The panels provide architects and manufacturers with the option to use wooden doors and frames that meet fire resistance requirements in commercial and residential building construction.

Recent listings offer wider variety of fire doors

Palusol SW fire protection panels are filed under the F411 Fire Door Listing program by QAI. The fire door listing include single doors with wider and higher stile and rails, as well as door pairs with a maximum size of 8-foot by 9-foot. Additionally, the QAI tested a new timber frame design, and new hardware and a ceramic door glazing system.

“Over the past 50 years, Palusol has proved itself as a provider of fire protection panels developed to keep customers safe,” says Andreas Bolz, business manager Palusol at BASF. “QAI’s research is a proof point of the quality that Palusol offers to commercial and residential builders.”
