Fire Doors

Fire Boar services, maintains, installs and certifies Fire Doors.

Fire Doors or a  Fire Rated Doorset consists of a door leaf, door frame, with hardware such as closers, handles, locks, vision panels, air grilles, and is defined under Australian Standard AS1905.1.

Fire rated doorsets must be self closing and self latching to be certified and when installed correctly with approved hardware, a tag and certificate is issued for the frame and the door.

The term "fire door" is the common short form used for a "fire-resistant-doorset". A fire resistant doorset consists of a door leaf, doorframe and associated hardware such as closers, handles, locks, vision panels, air grills and matching fire door tags on the door and doorframe. Fire doors are also required to be self-closing
and latching.

Fire doors are used for containing the movement of hot gases, smoke and fire, for the safe movement of building occupants and emergency services in the event of a fire.

The purpose of fire doors include:

  • Protect property by limiting damage in case of fire.
  • Make a building safer to occupy.
  • Close an opening in a firewall.

Fire Door Installation

Fire Boar has the advantage of being able to profile all doors requiring replacement.

The Advantages include-

  • All door frames are site measured
  • Factory machined precision on door size & Prep
  • Saves time on installation and less disruption to our clients
  • Reduced noise on installation
  • Reduction of damaged doors
  • Doors can be pre-finished
  • Professional finish – Guaranteed to fit every time

Essentially this offers doors ready for hanging, without the traditional length of time and mess made on site to shape and fit doors and cut out for hinging and hardware.

The benefits to fire doors alone (particularly in regard to certification issues) are enormous.

The further obvious benefit that arises is the ability to pre-finish doors prior to delivery (and installation).

Doors can be either pre-painted, or as a consequence of additional post-processing technology employed by the production facility; doors can be pre-finished in ‘non-paint’ options – laminates or other special finish paint alternatives, coupled with pre-finished edging that equates to a fully encapsulated door that requires no finishing at all, and virtually zero maintenance.

The traditional method of shaping a door on site to suit the door frame, and then the preparation of the door for hinges and lock has always prevented this.

Taking this aspect and pre-shaping and pre-prepping for hinges, lock and other ancillary door hardware at the factory end, prior to delivery makes this possible.

Imagine for example, replacing a door to a hotel room, where with pre-planning and the use of the Profiling system, the old door could be removed, and the new door could be hung and fitted off in the time that the hotel staff clean the room and change the linen – completed, and usable, in a fraction of the time it would usually take, and without waiting for the paint finish to dry (which would render the room unusable for that lengthy amount of time, not to mention new paint fumes).

The same huge benefits exist for new-build constructions. Doors manufactured and supplied as ‘Profiled’ can be Installed at the end of the project program, right before final clean if desired; and with considerable time saving to construction program.
