            What is an FD fire rating?

            An FD rating indicates the length of time a product like a doorway or hardware can protect against the spread of smoke and fire. The most commonly used are FD30, which protects for up to 30 minutes and FD60, which provides 60 minutes of protection. Some ratings, like FD30S, specifically denote smoke resistance.
