Fire Shutters are similar to conventional steel slatted and galvanised steel roller shutters that operate vertically, closing in the event of a fire. Our fire shutters are available in safety ratings of up to 4 hours. One of the main benefits of fire shutters is their ability to act as a means of physical security during normal use and a fire safety shutter in the event of a fire.
Security and fire protection combined – available in one, two or four hour ratings.
A Fire Shutter is an electrically operated vertical fire shutter, consisting of a steel slatted curtain and galvanised steel box assembly and guide rails. The box, curtain, guide rails and bottom rail can be powder coated as an optional extra.
Designed to be a security barrier during normal use and to be closed automatically during a test or an emergency situation. In the event of receiving a fire alarm signal the barrier will perform a powered descent to create a fire resistant barrier.
In the event of power failure a fire shutter will close using the battery backup feature. Fire Shutters design allows for both face or reveal installations.
