We have discovered our unit entrance door and a few others in our building in Sydney have asbestos in them.  The strata manager has obtained a quote to replace these doors with regular plain doors fire rated to one hour. I have seen some doors such as Hume and Corinthian doors that have a bushfire rating up to four hours and have some glass panels in them. Can these doors be used in an apartment and where can I find out if the bush fire rating these doors have is the same as the fire door rating in our building which is compliant with AS 1905.1?

Thanks

Or does the compliance to AS 1905 only occur after a fire resistant door has been installed properly with compliant hardware, door closer and seal?
