Q: Can this electric strike be used with a vertical rod device on a fire-rated door?
According to Von Duprin the 6111 is "Not for use in fire rated openings". The 6111 electric strike can be used only on non rated openings less bottom rod with pullman top latch (use ES prefix when ordering device). Device back set will change to match the centerline of the pocket of the electric strike.
You certainly ought to be able to use the Folger Adam 310-4 Pullman Keeper Electric Strike as seen here:
As this strike is a 3 hour fire-rated, industrial electric strike designed for extreme heavy duty applications so long as the devices ordered with a Pullman latch on the top.
I would also note that the device must be ordered as fail secure meaning that in the event of a power outage the strike will always be locked and therefore only unlocked when the strike is energized .
If you are going to actually order this material reach out to us first so that I can do an actual verification of compatibility of these items.
