Fire Shutters help many Gillingham 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 Gillingham 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 Gillingham 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.

Gillingham Fire Shutters - Technical DetailsThere 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 fire relay means that the Fire Shutters are connected to the fire alarm system. When the alarm is sounded, the Fire Shutters activate. 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 in Gillingham 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.
