Security Testing

A hinged Armashield-FR door set with Surelock McGill D4 three point locking was subjected to a Level 4 attack according to AS3555-1988 "Building Elements - Testing and Rating for Intruder Resistance".

Two men attacked the door set with common hand & power tools and succeeded in removing the door leaf from its frame (thus forming an opening in the door set) after 27 minutes 30 seconds.

Ballistic Testing

The standard Armashield-FR door set has been successfully tested to AS/NZS 2343:1997 “Bullet resistant panels and elements” with ratings of:

  • G2 .44 Magnum
  • S0 Shotgun 12 gauge 32g SG shot

A version of the Armashield-FR is available tested to R2 rating.

Ballistic rated door sets require either a fully-grouted frame installation to masonry or concrete walls, or else ballistic protection built into the frame during manufacture. Matching Ballistic Wall Panels are described in a separate section.

Fire-rated Armashield hardware

The fire-rated Armashield-FR door set may be fitted with a range of security hardware:

-        locksets with steel or brass latching components for FRR -/60/-
-        locksets with only steel latching components for FRR -/120/-
-        any closers, pull handles and minor items of hardware provided they are non-combustible and fixed with steel fasteners.

Note that fitting of deadlocks and other non-self-latching hardware will make the door set non-compliant in respect to the standard NZS 4520 Fire-resistant door sets.
