T-AKE Class Ships – Fire Doors

Federal Equipment Company was tasked to design and manufacture class A-60 rated “Fire Doors” for the T-AKE class ships built by General Dynamics NASSCO. The “Fire Doors” are electronically operated solid panels that become a moveable bulkhead and are utilized to separate the helo-hangar area from interior cargo handling areas onboard the ship.

The doors are constructed of ¼” thick steel plate with A-60 fire rated insulation applied between the vertical and horizontal door stiffeners. An imunescent expandable “fire seal” is present around the perimeter of each door to provide a seal with the adjoining bulkhead to prevent the passing of heat and smoke in the event of fire. Each T-AKE class ship has two such doors onboard, one measuring 17’ wide x 9’-2” tall and the other, 14’ wide x 9’2” tall. These doors have been tested and certified to meet the A-60 fire door rating requirements.
