Spartan Doors recently supplied a metal frame project for one of Australia’s largest construction companies. While the project required metal frames, we also supplied timber frames and fire doors to the Victorian site. The order included over 50 metal frames and another 50 timber frames, which is standard thanks to our industry leading lead times.
Special requirements for a fire door metal frame
Every component in a door system must comply with the Australian building code regulations. For example, the resistance levels of the door leaf must match the rating of the metal frame. This is the only way you can ensure the product will withstand the heat and pressure of a fire. Otherwise, smoke, flames and toxic gasses will find their way through the gaps and cracks, which means the fire barrier will fail.
Moreover, a weak frame will jeopardise the entire protection of your property because the metal frame (or timber) must be tested and certified to ensure the integral stability and security of your building. For that reason, our frames are popular with commercial sites, schools as well as substations and tunnels.
Each metal frame we deliver has:
- Proper isolation of spaces to effectively block fire and smoke.
- Been tested to ensure optimal resistance.
- Been certified for installation.
- Fire rated materials (1.4-1.6mm steel Zincanneal made in Australia).
- Fire resistant seals that expand immediately when in contact with heat.
- Resistance to warping, shrinking, sagging, and rotting.
