What is the difference between a fire-rated cabinet and a non-fire-rated cabinet?
The Fire-FX™ and Fire-FX2™ cabinets are insulated with approved fire-resistant material.  Our architectural series of cabinets are insulated on the outside of the tub with Thermafiber™ insulation, and the heavy-duty Security and School cabinets have a regular cabinet tub surrounded by a layer of type "X" drywall and an additional layer of steel. These have been tested and approved for use in fire-rated walls by national testing agencies. The regular cabinet tubs are not resistive to fire.
