Fire doors for the hospitality industry

All hospitality venues across Australia are required to follow stringent guidelines to maintain safety and security. In particular, fire doors are a necessary feature of every hospitality venue in Australia, helping to minimise the risk of fires. Let’s have a look at why fire doors are so vital within the hospitality industry. 

Rules and regulations

Safety is always important, and as such, strict regulations are put in place to protect all staff and patrons of hospitality venues. As multi-faceted spaces, hospitality venues may require a number of fire protection systems, including a number of fire doors. Fire doors are a crucial protection model which stop fire and smoke from spreading radically throughout a building, keeping fire exits clear and people safe.

What are fire doors?

Fire door is a short title for a fire-rated door set. Fire doors consist of a door leaf, frame and other hardware such as handles, locks, viewing panels and air grills. All of these elements must be rigorously tested in accordance with the Building Code of Australia (i.e. AS1530.4) to achieve a fire rating. You can read further about this method here.

Who needs hospitality fire doors?

Absolutely every hospitality venue in Australia will require fire doors including hotels, cafes, restaurants, clubs, pubs, music venues, fast food vendors and bars. It is safe to say that almost every publically used building will require fire doors of some kind.
