A 19′-6″ x 8′-0″ McKeon Fire Door, model T2500, was installed in the new two-story 59,300 sq. ft. outpatient clinic addition for Buchanan County Health Center. The vertical coiling fire and smoke rated door system incorporates two deployable, complying egress swing doors that are flush mounted in the adjacent walls. The swing doors deploy and lock into position at the command of an alarm condition. Once in place, the integral egress doors and frames serve as side guides to accommodate the 3-hour roll-down coiling fire door. Within seconds, the 3-hour opening protective with dual egress swing doors stands ready to fight fire and smoke.
