Shutting Out Fire

Fires can have catastrophic consequences for businesses, so everything possible should be done to protect lives and property. There are many areas where fire resistance testing and fire certification is required by national and international building regulations. Fire shutters that automatically close in event of an emergency are a proven way to provide a fire resistant barrier and can serve a double purpose by providing security at all times.FireShutter1.jpg

The shutter should be compliant with BSEN 1634-1 and BS 476 part 22 standards and the structure supporting the shutter must have a fire resistance equal or greater than that of the rolling shutter itself.

Using a double skinned insulated lath offers additional heat radiation protection.

Fire shutters are activated by a fire alarm link or a fusible link release. A signal causes the shutter to power down from the maintained supply or from the battery back-up.Guardiannewlogo.jpg

Featured Company – Guardian Industrial Doors

Experienced door systems manufacturer and installer Guardian Industrial Doors manufactures, installs and maintains fire resistance shutters with a 60, 120 or 240 minutes fire rating.

All Guardian fire resistant steel roller shutters are made to measure in the UK to the latest British and European standards and double as security shutters suitable for everyday use. They come with a choice of control options for the activation of the shutter. In situations where there is no main fire alarm panel, Guardian Industrial Doors can provide a standalone system that activates the shutter via a smoke and heat detector or fusible link.FireShutter2.jpg

Shutters in the commercial TM60-240 range are made with a 60, 120 or 240 minutes fire rating. The industrial FM-240 models give up to 240 minutes of fire protection and are designed for larger openings than the commercial range. Also for large openings is the insulated FR-INS240, which gives unbeatable protection against radiant heat and has been tested by Exova (Warrington) to BS476 pt 20.Firaslogo.jpg
