  • A one-hour or two-hour fire-rated door, certified in accordance with Australian Standards AS1905, and possessing the appropriate fire rating level.

What is a Fire Door?

A Fire Door is a door equipped with a fire-resistance rating, serving as a component of a passive fire protection system. Its purpose is to hinder the spread of fire and smoke between distinct sections of a building or structure, facilitating safe evacuation.

What is a Smoke Door?

A Smoke Door is a solid-core door designed to act as a physical barrier, impeding the movement of toxic fumes and smoke from one area to another within a building or between separate compartments.
