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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster business owner and take security and safety of your business premises and staff seriously, you may be surprised to know that every year many Lancaster businesses are forced to close as insurance companies refuse to meet claims because building regulations and Loss Prevention Council requirements have not been met. Fire Shutters from Westwood Security are the perfect to ensure compliance.
Lancaster Fire Shutters - Technical DetailsThere are three primary 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 Shutter 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 Shutters 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, thereby allowing them to exit an affected area. Building regulations in the Lancaster area 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.
