Fire Shutters can offer fire protection at up to 4 hours greater than would be the case for a standard non fire rated roller shutter door. They can be used to section off and protect a particular part of a building from fire, the whole building, or even provide protection between floors.
Fire Shutters help many Derby businesses to ensure that they protect their goods, buildings and employees from the threat of fire by offering potentially significant delays to the spread of the fire. If you are a Derby business owner and take the security and safety of your business, premises and staff seriously, you may be surprised to know that every year many Derby businesses are forced to close as insurance companies often refuse to meet claims because building regulations and Loss Prevention Council requirements have not been met in relation to fire spread. Fire Shutters from Westwood Security are the perfect to ensure compliance.
Derby Fire Shutters - Technical Details
There are three main methods of automatic operation. A fusible link involves the use of solder as connection in the circuit: heat radiated from a nearby fire causes the solder to melt and this activates the door.
A signal from the fire alarm to the audio visual panel activates the fire shutter.
Building regulations in the Derby region 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.
Option 1 - Fire Shutter Panel with 24 volt activation and single alarm, driven down by mains power supply.
Option 2 - As Option 1 but including a UPS power supply for use in the event of mains power failure to the Fire Shutters.
Option 3 - Fire Shutter Audio/Visual Panel, delay and split level drop with a 24 volt brake release gravity fail safe system.
