  1. Hi Peter,

    I want to get an RFID electronic lock fire certified. Where do i go to start this process?

    I need some assistance in what defining what the differance between a fire door and a fire exit door is. I have recentely replaced seven exit doors to a commercial property in Penrith. The original doors we fifteen or years old and had some water damage etc. I went to Taylors Doors at Brookvale and took photographs of each door from the inside and outside. Taylors told me that the doors I required for this property were fire exit doors and not fire resistant doors. I went and installed the seven new solid core doors. These doors do not have any tags on them. The doors are all opening out into a car park. Have I fitted the wrong doors and how do I find out the answer to this question.

    • Peter Mole says:

      A fire door is a door tested and approved under AS1905.1 and bears a compliance tag following its installation stating the fire rating, sponsor and certified.

      A fire exit door can be required to be fire rated as well as being the final exit door from a building dependant on the certified and their determination as to the proximity of the exit door to adjoining structures, if the opening is still within the building envelope etc.

      To know if you need a fire door or a fire exit door (which is not fire rated) you would have to seek the advise of a building certifier who would asses the exit door and the bounding construction.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind Regards Peter Mole

        Peter. Thank you very much for that. I will engage a private certifier.
