Why specifiers use FireGuard

  • Unrivalled Reliability
  • Fully concealed & hidden
  • Egress through opening with Fire Exit Hardware
  • AS1530.4:2014

Won-Door FireGuard provides unrivalled passive fire protection opportunities for architects to open up spaces in the buildings they design, while still complying with fire code requirements. A proven, trouble free solution to compartmentalizing a building from fire and smoke. Specifiers chose FireGuard as it offers superior reliability compared to fire & smoke curtains while also providing a solution that is completely concealed and hidden from view.

FireGuard is constructed of two separate parallel walls of 0.511mm steel panels that have been v-grooved to add strength. The walls are separated by a 150 to 200mm dead air space and a fire protective liner along the top of the door, which makes Won-Door an excellent choice of fire-resistant doors. FireGuard passed the rigorous UL 3-hour rating test and has been assessed by BRANZ to AS1530.4:2014 for 120 minutes integrity rating.

The development of the accordion type, horizontal sliding fire door – invented by Won-Door Corporation in USA – has had a profound influence on the model code requirements that regulate their use. They may replace traditional solutions in virtually any means of egress application.

A solution that is unobtrusive & hidden, while still being extremely effective for smoke and fire protection as well as egress pathways.

Fire Exit Hardware

All Won-Door FireGuard model doors come standard with Fire Exit Hardware (FEH) so the door can be used as a means of egress for safe passage through the opening during a fire. The FEH can also be removed from the door if the pathway is not to be used as a means of egress in the event of a fire.

Won-Door can be programmed to open back up for egress in the event of alarm activation. The door will open by pressing the Fire Exit Hardware. The FEH is located on both sides of the Won-Door and is set at a height so people in a wheelchair can still gain egress by rolling into the panel.

There are two parameters to be set regarding the Fire Exit Hardware;


  1. The distance you want the Won-Door to re-open.

This can be set anywhere from 813mm to the full width of the opening.

  1. The length of time the Won-Door will remain open for until it seeks to re-close?

This can be anywhere from 3 to 30 seconds.
