Sprinklers are a multi-billion dollar industry with  commercial systems costing anywhere between $400,000, to $15 million. Any changes to legislation 
pertaining to the installation of such systems can potentially lead to lost business.


Due to issues raised here, it is likely that some will refer to the Canadian journal to justify the use of a sprinkler on glass, system. This data is invalid for the following reasons:

1- While the (Canadian) report states that the test was a positive pressure tes...

Fire Windows

E Series – Non-Insulated Defender® Fire Windows

Australian Fire Control’s non-insulated fire windows are ideally suited for external locations where only protection against flame spread is required, and where there is no risk of injury or fire spread due to heat radiation. Must not be used in fire escapes, or any location where occupants could be exposed to dangerous levels of radiant heat. Fire ratings up to 4 hours. Single lites or multi-lites available. Large lites provide extensive vie...

Installing a top-notch suppression system and assuming it will activate early enough to extinguish or stop the spread of

fire is not the answer for eliminating fire rated doors and windows.

Since sprinklers are an “active” system, they require several steps to activate for them to work properly.

Sprinklers need to produce enough water pressure to activate, without this constant pressure they won’t activate.

Water pressure is only one of many such factors. Water supply can be accidentally turned off,

Applying intumescent coatings on and off-site

Intumescent coatings can be applied off-site so that the steelwork will arrive on-site with the fire protection already applied. This takes the application of fire protection off the critical path and helps to reduce the overall construction programme.

Intumescent coatings can also be applied direct to structural steel when in situ.

Both applications are available through Australian Fire Control.

STEEL PROFILE SYSTEMS - ADVANTAGES OF USING STEEL IN BUILDING STRUCTURES 
Australian Fire Control

Incredible strength and security
Steel is the strongest material on the market for curtain walls, partitions, windows and doors. Steel frames will last a lifetime, most likely outliving the buildings they are installed into. By direct comparison, they are three times stronger than aluminum.

Elegant sight lines
The slimline profiles allow the slimmest possible sightliness on the market. Welcoming light into...
