Are they fire rated so as not to buckle and twist the door out of shape?


I cant see it being that the mag works for 30 or 60 minutes with a fire up its ass.

No - any lock , handle etc that goes into a FR door have to meet all the fire and escape standards ratings - i.e there isn't much point having a 3 hour fire door with a toy lock and handles from B&Q that wont withstand a fire for any length of time.

But a mag lock is surface mount.

There is no way a aluminium cased mag lock is going to hold a door shut for 30 mins or an hour, so I was just wondering what the fire rated mag is fire rated for.


Would a standard ali mag deform the door, so it no longer sat in the frame properly.


I understand why locks and handles that go through the door should be fire rated.

Unless they've used a coffin, the armature plate is secured by a fixing that goes the whole way through the door.

A sizeable bolt that wouldn't let fire through.

The bit it screws into isn't that sturdy. I'd imagine that without proper engineering the threads could fail under the heat. If it was that simple then they'd all be claiming their mags were fire rated as I can't imagine either the maglock or the armature would melt within 30 minutes.

Adi - I have seen the tests on mag-locks etc on a course and you would be surprised how they fail under a simulated fire
