AUST – Essential Property Services advises that the Building Code of Australia nominates fire doors as safety measures in Part 11 Equipment and Safety Installations. Various state regulations nominate fire door inspections to be performed under AS 1851-2005 ‘Maintenance of fire protection systems and equipment’.

During the course of performing fire door inspections, our essential safety measures assessors view typical ‘critical’ defects to fire doors which occur frequently in our clients’ buildings. The following is a snapshot of typical defects in fire doors in a couple of buildings.
