Fire roller shutters are a cost-effective way of securing an opening to reduce the spread of flames and smoke if a fire breaks out in your premises. Fire shutters can be used for both industrial and commercial buildings where the risk and possibility of fire is increased.
Fire shutters are a great solution to sectioning areas of a factory or warehouse off so that if a machine or materials catch fire only one part of the building will be affected. Fire roller shutters give emergency services more time to respond before the condition of the building deteriorates dramatically.

Our twin skin steel shutters are the most effective way to secure an opening and/or compartmentalise against a spreading fire. Unlike single skin fire shutters, this model provides incredible radiant heat protection. To put this into perspective, normally if a fire was raging at 1200°C on the other side of a standard fire shutter you wouldn’t be able to stand within 6 metres of the opening. However, due to the FR-INS4H’s unique construction, the radiant heat levels around the roller shutter door drop from 65kw sq metre to an incredible 2.7 kw sq metre.The FR-INS4H also offers a 20dB sound reduction value meaning they are good to use in kitchens where the room next door may also used for meetings or exhibitions.
These fire-rated doors are fitted with safety brakes, coupled with ‘drive ratio control’, in order to manage controlled descents. Furthermore, we can incorporate one of our interface panels so that the roller shutter closes automatically when the fire alarm is set off.
