Fire Rated Shutters
Fire shutters and fire and smoke resistant curtains are imperative to protecting against the spread of fire in a building, warehouse or industrial premises.
Fire rated shutters differ from standard steel shutters because the materials used in them are specifically designed to resist fire and intense heat.
All of our fire shutters are constructed from durable steel and either powder coated, plastisol coated or galvanised. Additionally, they are available with hood and fascia canopies as well as acoustic and draught options, and we can also install anti-ram raid devices for your complete security.
Our fire and smoke curtains are made from fire resistant materials and whether a one-two hour rating will suffice or you think you may require a more resilient four hour fire shutter, we can help. We can incorporate key or button station activation as well as an integrated control panel for fire alarm relay signals, ensuring they close or open easily and promptly.
Our industrial fire shutters and smaller-scale fire curtains are activated through two forms of detection:
- Thermal fusible link – The shutters will begin to shut once the mounted detection sensor exceeds 68°. A timing delay is an option for this method so that the shutters don't necessarily have to begin closing instantly, giving time for personnel to evacuate.
- Fire alarm system – This is where the shutters are connected to the master fire alarm system and will begin to close once a fire has been detected elsewhere. A delay system can also be incorporated through this method.
