Fire Door Definition
A fire door is the common abbreviation for a fire-resistant door set. A fire-resistant door set consists of a door leaf, door frame, packing and fixing to wall, fire resistant wall, associated hardware such as closers, handles, locks, vision panels and air grilles. A fire-resistant door set must be self-closing and self-latching. The fire test information and the correct installation are also key elements of a compliant installation. A fire-resistant door set is defined under Australian Standard AS1905.1. Fire Resistant Doorsets are also categorised as hinged, pivoted (double action) and sliding.
TVC-C Fire Core
TVC-C Core is an asbestos-free, non-combustible insulation material produced mainly from specially treated vermiculite. At temperatures of around 1200°C the TVC-C Core does not produce any poisonous or health threatening substances - thus making it a product of choice.
The TVC-C Core fire rated doorsets have been tested in Australia to achieve fire resistance levels from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Approvals in accordance with AS1530.4-1997 and AS/NZS1905.1-2005 for both steel and timber door leaves in both steel and timber frames built into various types of fire rated walls.
