INTRODUCTION
This document has been developed as a guide to assist professionals in the preparation of specifications
covering the performance, design, manufacture and installation of commercial, industrial and institutional steel
door and frame products.
This specification has been prepared in accordance with the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) and
Construction Specifications Canada, National Master Specification (CSC/NMS) recommended format; Part 1 General, Part 2 - Products and Part 3 - Execution.
Products included in this specification meet or exceed the standards set by both the National Association of
Architectural Metal Manufacturers - Hollow Metal Manufacturers Association division (NAAMM/HMMA) and the
Canadian Steel Door Manufacturers Association (CSDMA).
Throughout the document notations under the heading “Spec Note” have been included in italics for the guidance
of the specifier and should not appear in project specifications.
This is an ‘all products’ specification and contains options not applicable to every project. It is therefore not
intended to be duplicated verbatim, but to be selectively edited and compiled after due consideration of all factors
relating to performance, application, function, regulatory and architectural requirements.
All dimensions referenced in this publication are nominal. Imperial (foot-pound) values are dominant, followed by
the SI metric counterpart in parenthesis. Imperial and metric values may not be equal.
Steel door and frame products covered in this specification are intended for use in commercial, industrial and
institutional facilities such as offices, factories, hotels, hospitals, libraries or schools.
Separate Guide Specifications are also included in the Architectural Manual for Commercial Stainless Steel
Doors and Frames - Section 08130 (TDS S02) and Detention Security Steel Doors and Frames - Section 11190
(TDS S03).
“Short Form” specifications, covering individual Fleming door and frame series are included in the Technical Data
Sheet (TDS) detailing each specific product. Refer to Sections “F” (Frame Product) and “D” (Doors).
Diskette and customized versions of this specification are available on request. Contact your local Fleming
Authorized Distributor or Technical Services, Ajax for further information and/or assistance.

Builders hardware and glazing materials are available that have not been evaluated
from a fire protection standpoint. Co-ordination of hardware, glazing materials and
other design elements, is therefore essential. A thorough review of UL’s “Building
Materials Directory”, ULC’s “List of Equipment and Materials - Volume 2” and WH’s
“Certification Listings” should be made during the specification, scheduling and
detailing process. In addition, the Architect should review Fleming’s “Fire Labeling
Specifications” publication to ensure profile, size and other design criteria desired are
within the requirements of testing authorities. Inquiries relating to eligibility may be
directed to Fleming’s Technical Services Department.
Edit 1.5.2 to delete references to ULC and the CAN4 Standards for US projects.
Certain jurisdictions in the United States have adopted fire test standards that require
the neutral pressure plane within the furnace to be located at 40” (1016mm) from the
sill. This is referred to as “positive pressure” fire testing.
For projects in “positive pressure” jurisdictions, edit 1.5.2 to delete reference to
UL10b/ASTM E152/NFPA 252/CAN4-S104 and UL9/ASTM E163/NFPA 257/CAN4S106.
Edit 1.5.2 for projects requiring “traditional” fire testing in the US and Canadian
jurisdictions to delete references to UL10c and UBC 7-2.
As well, many jurisdictions throughout the US require door assemblies to be rated for
“smoke and draft control”, in addition to their “traditional” or “positive” pressure fire
protection.
Edit 1.5.3 to delete references to UBC 7-2, Part 2 when smoke and draft control door
assemblies under “traditional” fire protection are required.
Delete 1.5.3 for Canadian projects.
Label materials approved by UL, WHI and ULC include; metal drive riveted, adhesivebacked mylar or die-stamped (embossed) into the product. Labels for doors under
“positive pressure” list the various test standards they comply with. Smoke and draft
control doors have an “S” in a box ( S ) included on the fire door label.
For non-labeled insulated high performance exterior D-Series doors specify R12.3 in
1.5.5. For fire labeled insulated exterior D or E-Series doors, specify R6.0.
Include 1.5.6 only if acoustic assemblies are required.
Edit 1.5.9 to include NAAMM for US projects or CSDMA for Canadian projects
Fire labeled product shall be provided for those openings requiring fire protection and temperature rise
ratings, as determined and scheduled by the Architect. Doors, frames, transom frames and sidelight
assemblies shall be tested in strict accordance with [UL10b/ASTM E152/NFPA-252/CAN4-S014 for
traditional fire test requirements] [UL10c/UBC 7-2 for positive pressure fire test requirements] .
Window Assemblies shall be tested in strict accordance with [UL9/ASTM E163/NFPA-257/CAN4S106 for traditional fire test requirements] [UBC 7-4 for positive pressure fire test requirements] .
Product shall be listed by Underwriters’ Laboratories, Underwriters Laboratories of Canada or Warnock
Hersey under active Factory Inspection Programs and shall be constructed as detailed in Follow-Up
Service Procedures issued to the manufacturer.
Smoke and draft control door assemblies shall be provided for those openings as determined and
scheduled by the architect. Doors shall be tested in strict accordance with UL 1784 [and UBC 7-2,
Part 2] . Door assemblies shall be listed by Underwriters’ Laboratories, Underwriters Laboratories of
Canada or Warnock Hersey under active Factory Inspection Programs and shall be constructed as
detailed in Follow-Up Service Procedures issued to the manufacturer.
Should any door or frame specified by the Architect to be fire rated, not qualify for labeling due to
design, hardware, glazing or any other reason, the Architect shall be so advised before manufacturing
commences.
Core materials for exterior insulated doors shall attain a thermal resistance rating of [R6.0 (RSI 1.06)]
[R12.3 (RSI 2.17)] when tested in accordance with ASTM C177 or ASTM C518.
Acoustic assemblies shall be provided for those openings scheduled by the [Architect] [Acoustic
Consultant]. Assemblies shall be tested as a fully operable unit in strict conformance with ASTM E9081 and ASTM E413-73 by an independent laboratory accredited for these specific test procedures by
the National Bureau of Standards under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program.
