How to use the Fire Door Gap Gauge. Can be used with any style door – hollow metal, wood, aluminum or fiberglass. Locate the dimension portion of the gauge needed to measure your gap. Insert the gauge between the door and the frame or at the door bottom. The gauge should fit snug in the gap and be able to slide easily along the entire length of the gap.
The clearance between the top and the vertical edges of the door, the frame, and the meeting edges of doors swinging in pairs shall be 1/8″ – 1/16″ for Steel Doors. The Clearance between the top and vertical edges of the door, the frame and the meeting edges of doors swinging in pairs shall not exceed 1/8″ for Wood Doors. The clearance under the bottom of a door and non-combustible surface where no sill exists shall be a maximum of 3/4″. The clearance under the bottom of a door and raised non-combustible sills shall be a maximum of 3/8″.
