A Marine door and frame is an engineered fire door and frame assembly designed for use on the high seas that includes listed door hardware. The standards for fire resistance on board marine vessels i.e. ships or rigs, are exceptionally stringent. AMBICO Marine fire door and frame assemblies are available as single doors only to a maximum size of 4″0″ x 7″0″ (1200 mm x 2100 mm) and can be constructed in either mild steel or stainless steel.
Fire codes for structures in a marine environment are overseen by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) based in London, England. Fire codes developed for land-based structures in are based on the standards distributed by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
AMBICO marine doors are tested to the A-60 standard, which means that they resist fire for 60 minutes and that they offer an exceptionally low temperature rise of 70 degrees Celsius as measured on ten points on the door face. For this reason AMBICO Marine doors are nominally three inches (75 mm) in overall thickness. When tested for glazing, Marine doors can be supplied with glass lites that have been factory supplied and pre-installed.
