Westwood Security Shutters supply Fire Shutters in Chelmsford. All of our Chelmsford Fire Shutters are fully tested and certified by Exova Fire Safety Warrington. Fire Shutters are an increasingly popular option and offer fire protection at up to four hours greater than would be the case for a standard non fire rated door or shutter. They can be used to section off and protect a particular part of a building, the whole building, or even provide protection between floors (horizontal fire shutters).

We Have Fire Shutters for Every Conceivable Requirement.
Our Engineers cover Chelmsford and surrounding areas including Maldon, Witham, Chipping Ongar and Ingatestone.
There are three main methods of automatic operation. Firstly, a fusible link may be used which involves the use of solder as the connection in the circuit. Heat radiated from a nearby fire causes the solder to melt and this activates the door.
Alternatively a fire relay means that the Fire Shutter or Fire Door is connected to the fire alarm system. When the alarm is sounded, the Fire Shutter activates. Thirdly, a delayed Audio/Visual Warning used 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.
