corridor doors, 2009 IBC

clearly i have been spoiled by the "old days" when local agencies allowed solid core doors without labels to be accepted as 20 minute fire rated corridor doors.

with the 2009 IBC, i don't see any such exemption or allowance. did i miss something, or are they all to be rated and labeled now? this is a non-residential project. thanks!

however, the local BO still has the discretion to accept the door without the label if he/she has a good faith belief that the non-labeled door provides the necessary protection... if the non-labeled door is configured such that it meets the requirement, but is only lacking a label, you should talk to your local AHJ to obtain their perspective as to whether you can confidently request approval of the non-labeled door
