I want to paint some old fire rated doors in a K-12 school building. They are factory stained and sealed. Is it okay to paint them as long as I don't cover the rating label?
Hello MR. Hinson,
Since it has been a while since you have posted your question I would suggest that you should contact your LAHJ to find out what codes/standards they have adopted or if they have a local fire prevention code that would allow you to paint the fire doors without obscuring the labeling or prohibit from painting the fire doors, they have final authority on fire protection matters. They may also be able to provide input on this subject. I would also suggest giving the NFPA a call and speck with an engineer who is familiar with NFPA 80. Just my opinion. Hope this helped you.
