Fire Doors Sydney

Fire Doors must comply with must AS 1905.1, which in turn requires the fire door to be tested as per AS 1530.4.

Fire Doors are tested and/or repaired/replaced when we perform the activities associated with your Annual Fire Safety Statement.

Your Annual Fire Safety Statement typically requires Fire Doors to be inspected and tested, including door furniture, auto close, latch and integrity as per AS 1851-2012, BCA Clause C3.4, C3.8, AS 1905.1

Ask Yourself:

Are the smoke and fire doors compliant in your building?

Have you done everything possible to ensure the safety of my occupants?

If your insurance company performed an Audit, will the Doors be ok?

This particular door served as a garbage room and was used 20 or 30 times a door. The resident would have boxes or containers which would be pushed through the door or used to prop the door open while they dispose of their waste.

This door passed our annual fire safety statement test and inspection in the earlier visit, but high usage had taken its toll.
