There's also the issue of trying to match my paneling to the fired rated door. I don't know if code allows me to veneer the door and finish to match my paneling.
Normally, I would pass on this job since it's out of my normal scope. But I do a lot of work for this designer, so I'd like to at least educate myself and her even if I don't end up doing the job.

Veneering the door voids the label, the panels and doors need to be ordered in sequence from a vendor that does both. Or order a similar cut as the doors and stain to match.
If the panels don't project more than 1-3/4" from the face of the rock fire rated core is accepted in most locations. You can get class "A" non water based coatings.
In regards to the finish, is the finish itself fire-rated? From what I'd read I thought it was the entire panel (finish, veneer, and core) that would be tested for a certain rating.
Where are you located and how tall is the building?
You may actually get away with out Class A thanks to NFPA and if it has sprinklers. Since it is wall decoration some counties or municipalities will dictate that the decorative panels can take up no more than 10-12% on wall covering in square footage related to the total wall footage.
