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...
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...

Developed for Fire Safety Engineers Radiant heat data not exceeding 15kW @ 365mm for 30mins Full EW120 European fire rating Fire tested to AS 1530 Part 4 More than 2 hours Integrity Low radiant heat transfer.
Radiant heat transfer through the assembly: Radiant heat flux will NOT exceed 15kW/m2 @ 365mm for 30-minutes. This performance provides the basis for Fire Engineering as an Alternate Solution to DtS requirements of NCC  for FRL up to -/120/30. The...
Defender® Fyrehalt V Fire Curtain "Partial Insulation" - no sprinklers required Developed for Fire Safety Engineers Radiant heat data not exceeding 15kW @ 365mm for 30mins Full EW120 European fire rating Fire tested to AS 1530 Part 4 More than 2 hours Integrity Low radiant heat transfer. 2 hour protection from fire and smoke & radiant heat shield. The Defender® EW Fire Curtain is a NEW and INNOVATIVE low radiation attenuation and partially insulating automatic fire curtain.
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.
AFC provide full compliance certification and can work with y...

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...
