Do I have to use a closer on a fire rated door or can I use spring hinges?
While a door closer is the preferred self-closing device on a fire door- yes, spring hinges are listed in NFPA80 as an acceptable self-closing device. The hinge must be UL approved for use on fire doors and NFPA 80 requires a minimum of 2 spring hinges on a fire door.
