Hinged Timber Fire Rated Doors

Quality fire doors are extremely important in ensuring your building and its occupants are protected in the event of a fire. Australian Fire Control specializes in the manufacture and design of Hinged Timber Fire Doors system solutions for commercial, industrial, and special-purpose applications.

Fire doors are an essential part of any building’s fire protection model and the overall safety of the people inside. They work to stop fire and smoke from spreading quickly and making their way into isolated areas like fire exits and corridors where people could become trapped.

Hinged Fire Doors – Commercial

Australian Fire Control's Doors are designed and engineered to suit the many different heavy-duty commercial and industrial applications. They are available in a number of different varieties including timber-faced doors, hygiene doors, smoke doors, steel-faced doors, and lead-lined doors. Our hinged fire doors for commercial spaces are available in either single or double configurations.

Hinged Fire Doors – Residential

Under the requirements of the Building Code of Australia, entry and exit doors in residential buildings, apartments, and hotels require a fire rating of one hour.

Our residential fire doors are specially designed for use in such buildings.

Our fire door leaf is lightweight and offers excellent strength, durability, security, and privacy, and despite their relative thickness maintains excellent fire performance levels in excess of the minimum one-hour requirement. 

Double Action Fire Doors

Double-action fire doors are suitable in spaces where high levels of bi-directional traffic are common. The leaves in this kind of door are different from those of hinged doors and essential intumescent seals must be fitted to the head and vertical stiles.

Our double action fire doors have a nominal finished thickness of 45mm and are available in single and double (pair) configurations up to 2700mm in height and 2400mm in width with a maximum 2-hour fire rating. These come fitted with the required intumescent seals and are supplied with the aluminium bullnose edge system.

Upgrades For Heritage Doors

There are many buildings in Australia of cultural or historical significance that are protected by heritage preservation orders. This can pose a number of problems for designers and builders in maintaining the aesthetics of heritage buildings while meeting modern safety regulations.

AFC are expert in installing tested and approved fireproofing systems for existing heritage doors. These fireproofing systems have been successfully tested to AS1530.4 and fully comply with the relevant building codes. We work with the utmost care to ensure that heritage doors are never affected by an upgrade.

What is the purpose of a fire door?

Fire doors are designed to slow down the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire. When closed, fire doors help compartmentalise a building to provide a safe passage of escape. As part of a building's passive fire protection, fire doors help save lives and slow down the rate of damage to the building structure, giving the fire brigade more time to attend to the scene.

What is the difference between a fire door and a normal door?

Fire doors are specially constructed with materials that have high fire resistance properties. The door leaf, door frame and door hardware are all rigorously tested to ensure the appropriate fire rating level is achieved.

Fire doors must be self-closing and self-latching. They should never be obstructed or held open as they need to be closed in order to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.

Fire-rated doors should be labelled clearly with the name of the manufacturer, year of manufacture, fire rating level and name of the certifying officer. They should also be regularly inspected to ensure they continue to meet Australian Standards.

What are the different types of fire doors in Australia?

There are many different types of fire doors to suit a wide range of applications, including:

  • Glass fire doors (with hinged and sliding options)

  • Hinged timber fire doors

  • Sliding fire doors

  • Steel security hinged doors

Fire-rated doors can be manufactured to meet application-specific building regulations and fire resistance ratings.

Which fire door do I need?

Glass fire doors are popular for office buildings, shopping centres and open-plan workplaces which require maximum visibility while meeting the highest fire protection standards. Sliding fire doors are ideal where there is minimal space, for example in hospitals, car parks and restaurants. Automatic options are available.

Steel fire doors are ideal for applications where security is a priority, such as petrol stations, retail stores and communication centres.

If you are not sure what type of door is right for your application, give the team at Australian Fire Control a call to discuss your options.

We offer a wide range of the highest-quality fire doors and related products to help you achieve maximum fire protection. Whether you're after fire doors in Sydney, Perth or anywhere in between, make sure to check out our range or request a quote for your passive fire protection needs. 

Are fire doors a legal requirement?

In Australia, fire doors are mandatory in many commercial and public buildings. All commercial premises should be inspected by an accredited fire and safety inspector to determine what passive fire protection systems are needed to meet building regulations. Fire door installation and maintenance must legally be performed by an accredited professional. If you need assistance with fire door installation or AS1851 maintenance, Australian Fire Control can help.

Is fire door inspections a legal requirement?

The entire fire door assembly (including the door frame, vision panels and approved hardware) should be regularly inspected to ensure it maintains the required fire rating level.

Inspections should be carried out according to the relevant Australian Standards for the type of building and fire door.
