Fire Rated & Complaint Locks
Fire Rated Locks
It is to be noted that ALL EXIT DOORS to a building are a critical part of the fire and safety infrastructure and as such by law there are very specific locking requirements required for those exits and doors.
In the past, fire or exit doors were looked upon solely for use as emergency Escapes or Fire Exits, however today that idea has been changed. Exit Doors are now used for all kinds of emergency, not just for fire emergencies.
Thus, all Exit Doors must comply with multiple codes and requirements. Including DDA / Disabled Compliance).
Locks that are to be used on Exit Doors, Fire Doors, travel and Path Doors are governed by Building Codes of Australia (BCA) and in just about every these doors need to be identified by an illuminated green "EXIT" sign above.
Exit safety is paramount however Personal Safety comes FIRST. This includes not only in fire situations, but all types of emergency situations. Like fires, gas leaks, toxic chemical spills, personal safety, and even bomb threats. Security can only be upgraded after personal safety. The BCA code specifically states that personal safety takes precedence over security.
With an exit strategy all Locks must be compliant the use of deadlocks, multiple locks, locking bolts, padlocks or pad bolt type fittings, are all considered dangerous, and are not permitted to be used.
The authorities that need to be consider are The Local Council - Building and Fire Inspectors - Fire Brigade, are the most common. The regulation can be very complex, as there are a number of legal and grey area with the compliance.
