Fire Shutter Installation & Repair
Preventing spread of fire in commercial & industrial buildings
Fire Shutters in Leeds, Yorkshire and Manchester
Mainly installed in facilities, units, airports, hospitals, banks and warehouses, fire shutters are part of a building’s fire strategy to help combat the spread, damage and danger of a fire outbreak. In the event of a fire, automatic fire shutters will close, sealing the room housing the fire, allowing workers the time to escape the building and for emergency services to attend to put out the fire. Should there be a power failure, the battery backup will ensure the shutter still closes.
Made from galvanised steel slats, the fire shutters will help prevent the spread of the fire to other rooms for a duration of 1 – 4 hours depending on the rating of the shutter purchased. It is always recommended to purchase the highest rated fire shutter to provide the best possible solution for the safety of employees and to help keep financial damage to a minimum.
Optional extras when installing a fire shutter include an alarm and audio visual panel to alert staff that the fire shutter is closing. The box, curtain, guide rails and bottom rail can also be powder coated in any RAL or BS colour of your choice.
