Fire Rate® issue Fire Door and Frame Compliance Tags & Certification Certificates with every new fire door installed and or repairs and upgrades for compliance.
Every Fire Rate supplied fire door and/or frame is issued with a compliance tag. If installed by us, we auto issue compliance tags and a certification certificate for building records with every door project. Fire Rate only tag fire doors and/or frames if they have been installed correctly in accordance with Australian Standard 1905.1
If purchasing fire doors and/or frames and your planning to install by others, Fire Rate issue the tags, (But) the tag must be engraved by the certifying company that inspects and signs off on the fire door/frame once installed. Fire Rate also offer this inspection/certification service!
If existing fire doors are missing tags, Fire Rate can inspect and tag the fire door for up to 1hr (-/60/30) and/or frame if compliant. Or up to 4hr (-/240/30) rating if confirmed by the manufacture that the fire door/frame is rated at a higher protection level. Also in order to tag existing fire doors and/or frames, we require the following information otherwise a new fire door and/or frame is required:
If tags are missing from your fire door(s), Fire Rate® can offer an inspection service to ensure the door(s) or frame(s) are fire compliant & issue a certification certificate, but Fire Rate® cannot re-tag any existing fire doors or frames unless evidence can be supplied of the manufacture, the internal core sponsor & the year the door(s) was manufactured. In addition, the door must be installed in accordance with Building Code of Australia & Australian Standard requirements.
The information on the tags informs the history of the fire door. It will show the manufacturer & the date the fire door was made. It will also show the certifier and that the door complies to the Australian Fire door & fire door frame standards. This Standard of performance should be in accordance with AS1905 Part 1.
If a fire door or fire door frame does not have compliance tag(s), then the door & door frame should be either replaced with a new fire door & fire door frame, or the fire door should be inspected by Fire Rate® to determine if the door is in fact a fire door, a fire door frame and that the door system including hardware installed complies with Australian Standards.
