Asico is specialized in processing commercial doors following American UL standards. Our fire door can be used for interior & exterior location. The fire rating time is 20, 45, 60 and 90 minutes. We have processed various doors for hotel projects and especially introduce the interconnecting door.
A door opening between two adjoining hotel doors is called a sharing door or communicating door or interconnecting door and is created by installing two doors within one frame-each swinging in the opposite direction. The purpose of these doors is to allow convenience for family or friends sharing two hotels rooms, but the doors also provide security when the rooms are occupied by separate parties, as well as maintaining the fire-resistance of the partition between the rooms.
Let’s see the sketch drawing of sharing door firstly:
Hotel Room Sharing Door Hardwares:
Communicating doors between hotel rooms typically have a single-sided deadbolt, with a thumbturn on the room side and a blank plate on the side facing the other communicating door. This requires the occupants of both rooms to unlock their door to allow access between the rooms. Occasionally, one door with two deadbolts may be used instead of two doors, but more sound will likely pass through the opening if only one door is installed.
The interconnecting doors may also have gasketing, a door bottom, and a threshold, to help prevent the transmission o f sound through the opening.
Generally the self-closing is not required between hotel/motel sleeping rooms. Because when both doors are open the two rooms become more like a suite which would not typically require a fire separation between them.
