Fire Door Closure arrangements

We have a situation where we need to open the doors of some of the store rooms as part of the operational requirement (For material movement from common area to store rooms). The walls as well as doors for these rooms are Fire rated. 


Request your advise for the code requirement and advise if there is any way to make these doors kept open in normal condition and get closed in Fire condition. 

Eg: The doors are connected with a fusible link or use a door stopper with low fire rated material (eg burn at 74 Deg C and allow the door to close with the tension of door closer)


Can some one advise
