Fire doors and passive systems

Fire Doors are an integral component of the fire protection in buildings and are known as “passive fire protection systems”. They are installed in walls constructed as passive fire barriers and each fire door has a fire rating known as a fire resistant level (FRL) as does the wall itself. Fire doors, walls and ceilings are provided to limit and stop the spread of smoke and fire throughout a building, or to compartmentalize a particular hazard to a manageable size to permit fire suppression. Ongoing maintenance is vital to ensure that passive system walls and ceilings have not been compromised by services and trades due to building works, renovations and the like. Fire doors should be maintained periodically in accordance with AS1851. Region West Fire Control provide inspection, testing, and installation of all type of fire doors and passive fire protection systems.
