Kwinana Waste Energy - Fire Rated Windows - AFC - Ei120 [-_120_120].jpg

Our extensive range of fire rated windows (steel fire-rated glass systems)
are manufactured right here in Western Australia in our state-of-the-art factory. 

The large range is attractive, ideal for all types of buildings including;
offices, shopping centres, residential apartments, warehouses, hospitals, and aged care facilities.

Glass used is crystal clear and suitable for any application.

Worried about using steel framing? DON'T BE, HERE'S WHY.
Steel has incredible longevity and is low maintenance!
The range of Defender Steel Framed Windows are first galvanized, then zinc primed on cuts/mitres the completely primed with high performance epoxy primer then on top of that powder-coated, with up to 25 years warranty available. 

Steel Framed Fire Rated Windows 
From -/30/- all the way up to -/120/120

What fire rating are you needing to achieve?

Below is a fire rating expressed in an FRL, if you know the fire rating for your window as 1hr or a 2hr requirement, you need to investigate further and find the FRL required. If you would like to learn more about FRL's please check this out.

Integrity ONLY


Fully Insulated

Integrity Only

Integrity ONLY Fixed Fire Windows

•  Prevents flames, smoke and hot gasses passing through to support a safe evacuation of a burning building.
• Grade A safety glass certified to AS/NZS 2208 for strength, resistance and safety.
•  No possibility of Nickel Sulphide formations therefore no risk of any resulting spontaneous glass breakage.
•  Similar look to low iron glass which maximises natural light passing through as well as high clarity when needing to look through the glass.
•  Higher durability and resistance when in contact with abrasive chemical solutions compared to regular glass which allows for further applications.

Radiation Control

Radiation Control Fixed Fire Windows

A reflective coating or intumescent interlayer reduces the radiant heat that penetrates the glass providing a cost-effective solution for corridor and other applications. 

This style of window is typically specified by a Fire Engineer in lieu of a fully insulated window system [EI Series] which could potentially offer HUGE cost savings compared to a fully insulated window system.

Insulated Windows

Fully Insulated Fixed Fire Windows

•  Prevents flames, smoke and hot gasses passing through to support a safe evacuation of a burning building.
• Grade A safety glass certified to AS/NZS 2208 for strength, resistance and safety.
• Advanced make up allowing fire protection from either side.
• Interlayer foams up to an opaque heat shield, preventing the passage of heat radiation in case of fire.
• 100% blockage of Ultraviolet rays (UV) to help protect from fading factors.
• Advanced Acoustic performance for greater comfort from disturbing noise.
• Multi-laminate adding further Security from intrusion.

Note the required adherence to AS standard maximum size allowances per thickness and application. Specifications should state
the following key required AS standards:


  • All glass in general to comply with AS 1288.

  • All Safety Glass to also comply with AS/NZS 2208.

  • All Fire Rated Glass to also comply with AS 1530.4.

Supply & Installed by AFC or opt for Supply Only.
What is supply only?

A supply only fire rated window is pre-fabricated window assembly ready for installation by
The steel window frame is fully assembled and powder-coated.
Glazing beads are cut to length, and can be pre-fitted into frames before transportation.
External gaskets are pre-cut and fitted into frame with internal gaskets supplied loose and
un-cut for installation by others.
Fire rated glass will be cut to size and packed separately to avoid breakage in transport.
Further to this, Australian Fire Control provide a comprehensive written installation guideline as well as technical support via phone and email.
Upon installation of the fire rated window/s AFC offer a remote compliance certification.
The completion of compliance installation checklist, statutory declaration and supporting images must be provided in accordance with our installation requirements

What does FRL stand for? 

Australian Fire Control are experts in fire-rated glazing solutions, and our rated glazing systems are designed for easy installation into new projects, renovated buildings and existing walls. Our various window and door configurations will provide insulated fire resistance levels of -/60/30, -/60/60, and -/120/120, and non-insulated levels of -/60/-, -/120/- and -/240/-, which will meet any requirement of the National Construction Code of Australia.


Our range includes steel and timber-framed fixed windows, timber-faced glass fire doors, steel-faced glass fire doors, single and double-acting doors, and glass sliding fire doors. All Defender fire windows are supplied as a certified system comprising of glass and frame and are classified according to their Fire Resistance Level as required by Australian Standards and the National Construction Code(NCC) of Australia. Fire Resistance Levels, or FRL’s for short, are a series of numbers that designate the ability of a certified product to resist the spread of fire. For example, a typical fire-rated wall may have a fire-resistance level of 120/120/120, and a typical insulated fire window may have an FRL of -/120/120. We cater fire rated windows for Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and anywhere in between. With years of experience in the industry, we can help you with your passive fire protection needs. 

But what do these three numbers actually mean?


Structural adequacy
The first number simply refers to how long the product can withstand the spread of fire and still support what it is designed to support. Doors and windows are not structural items, and therefore are not tested for this aspect of fire resistance, and will usually be represented with a “-“ in the first position.

The NCC states that "If a non-load bearing element is able to be used for a purpose where the Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions prescribe an FRL for structural adequancy, integrity and insulation, that non-loadbearing element need not comply with the structural adequacy criteria" (NCC Spec A2.3,6). I.E., items that are non-structural such as doors and windows, can be used in walls that require structural adequacy.


The second number refers to the ability to prevent the spread of flames. There are requirements under the Australian Standards as to the pass and fail criteria.


The final number refers to the length of time that the product can prevent the spread of fire due to heat transfer. Special requirements include the ability to prevent a localized temperature increase of more than 180 degrees C or an average temperature increase of 140 degrees C for the duration of the test.
