Fire Rated Shutters: The Unsung heroes of fire safety
Fire shutters are the unsung heroes of the fire safety because for most of their working lives they just work like any other doors. However, if fire breaks out, a fire shutter must fulfill its role as an engineered safety device, in order to hold back the spread of fire and smoke and to save lives and property.
Fire rated doors / shutters are applied in various places such as industrial, commercial, institutional, and retail projects where fire protection is required. We take fire shutters for granted. We need to regularly check that all parts continue to function correctly without compromise.
We expect a jobbing builder or small contractor to be able to install a complex engineered fire safety device. What he doesn’t realize is ALL of the components have to be able to work together to ensure the shutter assembly will work effectively in the event of a fire. Certified fire shutters with proper fitting is necessary to avoid any damage to property and lives.
