Glass Fire Doors
When it comes to fire protection, don’t settle for less. Put your trust in systems that are proven to offer strength, durability and superior performance. As Australia's Leading Passive Fire Protection Company, we offer some of the finest fire rated glass doors in Australia so that you can protect your building and keep its occupants safe in the unfortunate case of a fire.
We manufacture a wide range of interior and exterior fire resistant glass doors including single and double hinged doors with steel or aluminium frames. All of our doors offer superior fire ratings and are compliant to AS 1530.4, AS1905.1 and/or BS-EN standards.
Why choose a hinged glass fire door?
> Architecturally appealing and expansive clear view throughout
> Proven stand-alone fire rating that does not rely on sprinklers for performance.
> Intelligent Steel framing consists of a slimline profile which can be powder coated in any colour.
> Glass is crystal clear, blending seamlessly into other non-rated glass doors and windows.
Hinged glass fire doors are an architecturally appealing option which offer excellent fire ratings to help keep your building and its occupants safe. Our advanced systems have proven stand-alone fire ratings that do not rely on sprinklers for performance.
Why choose a steel framed glass fire door? Steel is the strongest material on the market, offering incredible strength, security and longevity - steel frames will often outlast the building they were installed into. Rigorous fire testing has been conducted on RP Technik steel profiles, proving that the addition of steel can help provide the highest fire protection.
While offering you the highest level protection, our steel hinged glass fire doors are not obtrusive but can be installed for a seamless, aesthetically pleasing finish. The elegant slimline steel framing allows the glass doors to blend naturally with other non-rated glass doors and windows in your building. You can welcome natural light into your space, and make the most of any view through the door.
Why choose a steel framed hinged glass fire door?
> 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 aluminium.
> Elegant sight lines - The slimline profiles allow the slimmest possible sightliness on the market. Welcoming light into any space and making the most of every view.
> High thermal and weather performance - Incorporating the latest thermal barriers and weatherproofing steel provides high performing systems that will reduce energy bills.
> Sustainability - Around the world more steel is recycled every year than the total of paper, aluminium, glass and plastic combined.
> High Fire Ratings - Rigorous fire testing has been conducted on RP Technik steel profiles. With a variety of operable and fixed designs, the addition of steel to a design can provide the highest fire protection.
The first and most important step in choosing an appropriate system is to determine the required Fire Resistance Level (FRL) to meet the relevant section of the Building Code of Australia (BCA). All fire ratings are classified according to FRL, which incorporates 3 different numbers, and is represented as X/Y/Z, where X= structural adequacy (always 0 or “-” for doors and windows), Y= the integrity (the ability to restrict flames), and Z= insulation (the ability to restrict the passage of thermal heat, thereby providing a safe environment for people while also preventing fire spread via flash-over).
We offer a number of aluminium framed glass fire doors from Aluprof. These products help create fire protection zones in a building to keep occupants safe in the case of a fire. Designed with thermally-insulated aluminium profiles and fire-resistant glass panels, these products are a modern and versatile solution to passive fire protection. As with all our products, they have been tested and tried rigorously to meet current Australian standards.
