results, the width of each leaf should not exceed two thirds
of the door height and height overall should not exceed 6000mm.

of sizes up to 15000mm height and 30000mm width.
The door is made up of a frame and cladding which comprises
of either single or multi leaf sections. NOTE: It is the responsibility
of the builder/designer to provide adequate structural columns/walls
to carry all weight loads.
The door frame shall be constructed using rolled hollow section
steel tube members, braced and trussed as required and designed
in accordance with the Australian Standards to withstand wind
