Fire Resistant Shutters are an increasingly popular option for Birmingham 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), creating a separation between workers and the dangerous fire, allowing time to escape.
Fire Resistant Shutters help many 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 fire.
If you are a Birmingham 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 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 way to ensure compliance. So for an informed solution to preventing the spread of fire in your business call Westwood.
Fire Resistant Shutters - Technical Details
There are three main methods of automatic operation. Firstly 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.
Secondly a fire relay means that the Fire Shutters or Fire Door is connected to the fire alarm system. When the alarm is sounded, the Fire Shutter activates. Finally, 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.
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.
Usually most fire shutters are connected to and controlled by the buildings fire alarm system.
We can also offer audio visual warning panels, smoke and heat detectors and fusible links.
