Abstract

Fire rated door is one of the passive fire protection systems that can prevent fire and smoke from spreading when a fire occurs. The purpose of this study was to analyze fire rated doors made of Gypsum and Kapok fiber composites. This fire rated door has been manufactured in accordance with Malaysian Standard MS1073: Part 2: 1996. This fire rated door has been modified with various composite compositions and thicknesses. The results showed that the fire rated door made of Gypsum and Kapok fiber can last from 30 to 60 minutes. This study clearly shows that door thickness is very important in the manufacture of fire rated door.
