Libya Export Order for Fire Shutters

24th May, 2010

Westwood Security Shutters Ltd (Manchester and London) have today announced the export of 24 x 2 hour rated Fire Shutters to Libya. The units are all electrically operated and powder coated and have been built to exacting client specifications.

The customer sought a British/European recognised standard Fire Shutter door. Westwood were pleased to provide specially manufactured Fire Shutters that are fully tested to BS EN 1634-1 at Exova Warrington Fire Global Safety.

Westwood Director Matt Sands commented: “We met the Architect at Dubai Big 5 exhibition and have been in regular contact since. They know exactly what they are looking for and we are delighted that we have been able to fit the bill! The order has proceeded very smoothly and will hopefully be the first of many more in the future. We had a few small issues to overcome. One was the fact that most of Tripoli is 110 volt so we had to have motors specially manufactured to suit the application. Next month the customer is visiting our factory/head office in Manchester to see how we build Fire Shutters and also to see what the other products that we manufacture.
