Sliding Fire Doors

The long established fire engineering strategy of using compartmentation to manage and resist the spread of fire within buildings is a practice that is extensively prescribed in the Australian building codes.

This is generally achieved by using fire rated wall systems to divide up areas into manageable risk sizes. One of the inevitable outcomes of this strategy is that there will be situations where large openings are required in the walls to allow for the effective movement of plant or equipment, people, vehicles and machinery or where the use of conventional side hung doors is impractical. Typical applications are shopping centres, public transport infrastructure, large public spaces, warehouses, manufacturing facilities and schools.

The FSE Sliding Fire Door configuration required is dependent on the size of the opening to be protected and the available side-room and headroom. FSE Sliding Fire Doors are available in Single Leaf, Bi-Parting, Multiple Leaf, and Combination Multiple Leaf Bi-Parting to ensure we can provide the right solution.

FSE Sliding Fire Doors are rated up to 4 hours, are available in steel or plywood finish, can be lead-lined for acoustic performance and up to a maximum size of 5500mm in height and 8000mm in width.
