About Fire Shutter

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

How do fire shutters work

Building regulations require that openings in fire resisting walls or partitions must have a door with an equivalent fire rating to that of the wall or partition.

Heat radiated from a nearby fire causes the fusible link to melt and this activates the shutter.

or, using fire relay connected to the fire alarm system, when the FS alarm is sounded, the shutter activates.

or, a delayed Audio/Visual Warning system in connection with the Fire Shutter is connected to the alarm system, and operates usually with a time delay very similarly to a fire relay. During this delay an additional alarm is sounded, warning those in close proximity to the door that is about to close, thus allowing them to exit the affected area.

Why Do We Recommend Fail-Safe System

Fire shutters could be driven by city power. But in case of a fire does occur, there may come a power blackout. Our fail-safe system features a 24 volt brake release gravity drop close, with advance functions of delay action and split level descent.
