FireDefender® Banded Cores
Mineral cores and FS stiles, rails, and blocking may be bought separately, in pieces cut-to-size by us and ready for assembly at a door manufacturer's location. Or, a door manufacturer may buy banded cores from Georgia-Pacific with the core, FS stiles, rails, lock blocks and a wood outer stile already assembled by us. If intumescent seals are required, we will install them.
We offer a range of final thicknesses from 1.50" to 1.60", a variety of wood species, and dozens of different blocking, stile, and rail configurations to fit almost any need. Banded cores may be ordered with a surface sealer applied to reduce surface dust, and with saw kerfs cut into the face to release any steam generated by hot pressing faces to the door.
With FireDefender® banded cores, door manufacturers receive a product that is ready for the glue spreader and door skin press without the need for costly and time-consuming assembly.
