Interlinked Shutter Designs
During the onset of fire, it is essential that the shutter is capable of closing automatically to protect lives and property. As such below are the 2 most popular methods of ensuring automatic operation.
Fire Alarm Relay – This system works by interlinking the shutter to the existing fire alarm system so that when the alarm is triggered the shutter automatically closes.
Fusible Link – Designed to trigger the shutter automatically once a pre determined temperature has been exceeded, this system is perfect for local fire detection.
Why Select a Fire Rated Shutter?
In certain installations the requirement to provide protection against fire can be part of the building regulations. In others this can be dictated by the local fire authority. In either case, it is an essential part of a building`s design that the occupants are able to remain inside the building in a safe environment until the fire service arrives.
Whilst this is easily achieved in terms of protecting walls, ceilings and floors (by adding fire proof plasterboard etc) this still leaves structural openings and pedestrian areas vulnerable to the spread of flames.
