Defender Steel Framed Glass Fire Doors
“Don’t rely on the dubious performance* of sprinklers on toughened glass.
Put your trust into a TESTED system that does not rely on cold water flowing over heated glass”.
*Contact AFC Technical for further information.
Australian Fire Control manufacture a wide range of interior and exterior fire resistant glass doors including single and double hinged doors.
All doors 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.
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).
