Professional Fire Door Installation for Melbourne Businesses & Residents

Owners of office and commercial buildings— including homes used for commercial purposes— are strictly required to adhere to Australia’s fire compliance legislation as part of their obligations as landlords. Your fire door may not meet compliance requirements if it:

  • Does not self-latch or self-close correctly
  • Has incorrect signage
  • Has no tags on the leaf or frame
  • Has incorrect hardware
  • Has illegal hold open devices attached
  • Is not sealed sufficiently
  • Possesses excessive gaps

Fire-rated doors must be installed properly to function and save lives in case of fire emergencies, making it crucial to have them fitted only by competent fire door installers.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Door Installations

Can I install my own fire door?

While it is technically possible for an individual to install their own fire door, it is not recommended. Fire doors are a critical component of a building’s fire safety system and they must be installed according to strict guidelines in order to be effective.

In addition, fire doors must be tested and certified by a third-party testing laboratory to ensure that they meet the relevant safety standards. Therefore, it’s highly advisable to hire a professional contractor who is experienced in the installation of fire doors and can ensure that the door is installed correctly and meets the standards.

Do you need a certificate to fit a fire door?

You don’t need a certificate to fit a fire door, but you need to make sure the fire door you are installing is certified by a third party testing laboratory. This certification ensures that the door has been tested to meet safety standards for fire resistance and that it has been deemed suitable for installation in a specific application.

It’s a good practice to check if the fire door is certified and that the installer is capable of installing the door in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and current building codes.

Can you cut a window into a fire door?

In general, it is not recommended to cut a window into a fire door because it can weaken the door’s fire resistance. Cutting a hole in a fire door will reduce the door’s ability to contain fire and smoke. It can also void the fire door certification label, making the door not compliant with fire safety regulations.

However, there are fire doors that have a window or vision panel which are tested and certified as a whole door. You can check with your manufacturer if these types of doors are available.
