Our comprehensive knowledge allows Blanket Fire Protection to recommend the appropriate solution using compliant products. BFP offers viable Fire Protection System service enabling you to meet your statutory obligations for Essential Safety Measures (as set out in the BCA) to ensure compliance, certificate of occupancy requirements and up to date record keeping and documentation.
A Fire Door is one of the primary component measures of structural fire protection implemented to contain a fire in the fire compartment, thus limiting the spread of fire and smoke for a period of 1, 2 and 4 hour rating as determined by the BCA. This is achieved by using the appropriate fire structures and components appropriate to each situation using materials that meet Australian Standards for fire resistance.
Changes to building regulations in June 2005 have introduced more stringent fire safety precautions for shared accommodation buildings in Victoria. The improved safety regulations are aimed at reducing the occurrence and severity of fire related injuries. The Building Regulations 2006 introduced further exemptions to the requirements."

We supply and fit internal and exit fire rated doors to residential and commercial sites with 1Hour, 2Hour & 4Hour Fire Resistant Levels (FRL) in compliance with AS 1530.4 AS/NZS 1905.1 2005 and BCA C3, C3.6 - 3.11 (G)
