Question:

Who determines fire door and frame ratings?

 

Answer:

Even though the local jurisdiction has the authority, the architect has control in determining the specific rating required with the wall type dictating the specific hourly rating. In a replacement of existing, the door or frame should be replaced with the same rating unless the local jurisdiction has sited the end user to use a different rating.
