Is there a minimum order quantity?
We do not have a minimum order quantity, but prices are based on the order size. We offer volume based discounts and free shipping for most projects that require several complete door and hardware assemblies.
How do I use the shopping cart?
Our site does not allow doors and frames to be ordered through a shopping cart. To place an order or get a quote you must work with a USA Fire Door Account Manager. Our account managers work directly with our clients to generate quotes and place orders. Once your quote is approved we will need a deposit payment and a signed copy of the estimate to be emailed or faxed to us.
How do I open an account and/or get terms?
Just give us a call, send us an email or submit a web query and one of our account managers will setup your account. We do not offer payment terms. All orders must be paid by check or credit card before the order ships. A minimum deposit of 50% of the total order amount is due before production can begin.
Where are you located?
We have order fulfillment centers strategically located throughout the country. We currently distribute within all 50 states, Canada, Mexico & the Caribbean. Most of our orders are delivered from one of our regional warehouses directly to the job site. Our corporate headquarters and nationwide customer service center is located in the Los Angeles, CA area.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is free for most orders requiring several complete door and hardware assemblies. For smaller orders some freight charges will apply. Freight charges are based on the package weight, size and delivery location. Most of our estimates show freight charges as a separate line item in the event that shipping is not free.
How will my order ship?
Our orders are carefully packaged and crated for shipment anywhere in the US. Most orders are shipped via common carrier and arrive on a tractor trailer. Smaller trucks can be used when the destination is a limited access location. Lift gate service is available when the crate does not exceed the size and weight limit. Once your order ships our shipping department will send the tracking number via email. If you need a phone call or an appointment to schedule delivery please notify your account manager before placing your order. Appointments, lift gate services, residential and limited access deliveries will incur additional freight charges.
Where will my order ship from?
Your order will ship from one of our regional fulfillment centers depending on your location and the material being ordered. Your account manager can provide more information after your project has been quoted.
Can you ship internationally?
We frequently provide commercial door products for international use, but it is the responsibility of the purchaser to arrange overseas shipping. We can deliver to any US Port, freight forwarder or storage facility.
How long does it take to get material?
Production times vary based on the products being ordered. Transit times can range from 1-5 working days depending on location and the size of the order. Most in stock orders that do not include any custom materials or shop modifications are ready to ship within about 3-5 business days. Orders that require shop work or customization will require additional time for manufacturing. It is best to discuss lead times with your account manager before ordering. Although our lead times are some of the fastest in the industry we do recommend that you plan to receive material at least one week before your anticipated start date.
Can I pick my order up?
Yes. Orders can picked up at our Los Angeles area warehouse or at the nearest fulfillment center. Most of our clients prefer to have their orders delivered directly to the job site.

How do I go about making payment?
You must have an estimate or an invoice before you can make a payment. Payments can be made by selecting “Make A Payment” in the right corner of the website. Your account manager can also assist with making a payment. Checks can be made payable and mailed to USA Fire Door LLC, 101 W. Walnut St. STE 127, Gardena, CA 90248. Please include a copy of your signed estimate with the check and send it to the attention of your account manager.
What is your return policy?
We recommend that our products be installed by qualified professionals who are familiar with standard commercial door and frame systems. Since most of our orders are customized we do not offer returns for any commercial doors or frames that are received as indicated in the estimate that you must review and approve before production can begin. Your account manager can provide additional details and clarification to the products you are ordering, but since we are not able to visit your job site it is your responsibility to double check all field conditions against the estimate. Unopened hardware can be returned within 30 days of receipt as long as it is brand new, uninstalled, in original packaging and includes all pieces, parts or components. A 25% re-stocking fee will be assessed on all returns. We will by no means accept returns for products that include factory customization, modifications, custom options or cannot be re-sold. Return shipment is the responsibility of the customer. We highly recommend that all customers consult a qualified building professional to verify all field conditions before placing an order.
