Fire Shutters protect your premises for 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 offer outstanding levels of fire protection for goods, buildings and employees by creating significant delay to the spread of a fire. 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. Fire Shutters from Westwood Security are the perfect way to ensure compliance.
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 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 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 Thirsk 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.
