Special feature & advantages
There was one major glitch in bringing buying and installing Fire rated Shutters in a factory or warehouse. These were initially imported from Europe and coasted exorbitantly high for a lot of customers. The doors were not manufactured by any other company as it needed different set of skills and knowledge to start manufacturing them.
India is a developing country and is rapidly growing in terms of industries. Avians started with the regular automated doors and loading bay solutions but gradually started manufacturing high-end automated doors and loading bay solutions. Avians started acquiring the expertise with constant study of technology. Since these products were then imported, product delivery time and cost was an issue for many. In addition, these products were manufactured as per their own standards and requirements irrespective of what the clients here in India actually required. Avians devised a game-changing plan in this domain. Fire rated shutters by Avians are designed with advanced technology and knowledge, keeping in mind the safety standards and extremities. It also customizes the products according to the customer’s requirements after a detailed study of the situation by the experts.
Earlier shutters was tested in India at CBRI & found fire leakage through guides & top cover. Avians deeply studied reasons behind failure & found that guide & top bracket assembly needs to be changed. Then product was redesigned & tested again at world renowned Warrington UK Lab.
BS 476- Warrington, UK Testing Procedure
The test was therefore conducted in accordance with clause of BS 476: Part 22: 1987 Method for determining the fire resistance of non load-bearing elements of construction”.
The shutter was designed & manufactured at Avians Pune factory & single specimen was sent to UK for testing. Shutter was face mounted to a masonry wall construction such that the barrel assembly was exposed to the heating conditions of the test. At Warrington Avians team has installed the shutter at the testing oven. The specimen was judges on its ability to comply with performance criteria for integrity, as required by BS 476: part 22: 1978, clause 8
The furnace was controlled so that its mean temperature complied with the requirements of BS 476: part 20: 1987, clause 8 using thermocouples distributed over a surface as per BS requirements. During testing maximum temperature was started from 0 deg initially & gradually increased up to 1055 deg C. It is required to mention here that Shutter was at temperature above 1000 deg from 90 minutes till end of testing. It was major achievement. Test was carried out for 261 minutes and was discontinued after 261 minutes, and found that not fire is escaped out of shutter.
After successful completion Warrington has issued certificate consisting of entire shutter specifications, individual part drawing, dimensions, photographs of each hour testing, Radiation intensity at a specific distance etc.
Avians is also known for its post sales services. It makes sure that every product that they have installed works according to promised standards. Avians aim to bring technical advancement and a better future to all work places.
