pocket doors ...how to make fire rated


$100??? I couldn't build them for that. At that price I'd jump all over it if I were you.

Did you find a solution? I'm looking to do the same.

pocket doors ...how to make fire rated


yes I did ,I put in 1 1\2 inch solid oak doors with self closer.The closeris the same thing as you would find on those kithen drawers that close by them selfs and then I hung a heavy plastic curtain on the garage side that is on a pully so you can pull it back out of the way to get in and out but also just unhok the chain and it will slide across by itself.I had the local fire marshal over for a cook out last summer and showed it to him,he told me it more then meet any code in the state and thought it was a great ideal.So far the olny problem is since the doors are heavy I have to keep the tracks clean and oiled well,one bit of dirt and they get hard to move

Commercial buildings in the US use this type of door. You see them in lofts in Manhattan that used to be manufacturing facilities.
Try googling "loft doors".

I must have missed something. Without a friction fitting gasket around ALL four edges of at least one side, how do you seal off the air passages (garage chemical fumes) and still be able to open and close the door without the aid of a fairly powerful motor and chain pulley system. This certainly can't be something you can operate with your fingertips, can it?
