Is this pet door fire rated? It is installed in a self closing fire door, between house and garage, so it must be.
I write those up as a breach of the fire door. Never get questioned on it.
How do you know the BIG door is fire-resistance rated? If it isn’t, then the kitty door doesn’t need to be rated.
PS: If it’s rated, there will be a UL label on the edge of the door.
I was assuming he already had verified fire rating for the big door.
Come on guys, I’m sure no one would ever install anything but a fire rated door where they are required, let alone install anything but a fire rated kitty door cut into such a fire rated door…got it?
Why bother with negating a fire door, just train the cat for krist sake.
The big door was fire rated and self closing.
I retract all previous comments and now go with Marcel’s advice.
The entry into the house from the garage must have a 20-minute-rated fire door—a minimum 1 3/8-inch thick solid wood or steel door. The UBC additionally requires the door to be self-closing and self-latching.
As it is required by most jurisdictions that have adopted the IRC and IBC Wayne.
And that cat door is a breach in the door. Correct?
Unless it is one of these, which it is rarely encountered.

Thanks!! Good information. The door in question is not the type in your information.
I don’t think that door would be approved for use into the garage. It states it is an exterior door and while the door itself may be fire rated, I don’t know of any movable flap that would meet the fire rating necessary.
Overall, I would say the cat would be good stir fried with teriyaki sauce and rice.
I didn’t think so either, but it does say it is rated for fire rated doors, dosen’t it?
Whether it is an exterior door or garage door, would not make a difference.
I have never seen one personally, but I am sure it is manufactured to meet the most recent codes somewhere, would you not think.

Has anyone tried this before, kind of an oriental dish isn’t it. :mrgreen:
Why would you want your cat hanging out in an attached garage anyways?
