Well constructed fire resistant products facilitate the safe exit of people when there is a fire. They also tend to control and minimise damage to effected areas as they prevent fire or smoke spreading whilst they can also protect neighbouring properties from damage. Westwood Security Fire Rated Shutters are ideal for use in conjunction with the existing and new fire alarm systems. Normal configuration allows the fire rated shutters to either open or close on a command from the fire alarm, thus providing a barrier or, if applicable, allowing safe evacuation of the building.

Westwood Security Fire Rated Roller Shutters are tested to BS EN 1634-1 at Exova Warrington Fire Global Safety.

The correct installation of fire door assemblies is fundamental to their overall performance in the event of a fire and should only be carried out by competent experienced professionals. Our engineers have been trained to the standards required to meet FIRAS requirements. Third party accreditation of installers is covered by Approved Document B of Building Regulations.

FIRAS is a certification scheme from Exova Warrington Fire for companies installing fire protection products and systems. A FIRAS certificate is a measure of installer competency, thus providing confidence to specifiers, enforcement authorities, building owners and occupiers.

People have both an expectation and also a legal right to be safe from fire when they are in a building. To meet these expectations, your fire protection products must have been adequately tested to prove that they will work correctly. Westwood Fire Rated Shutters are designed for use between compliant walls and fire rated compartments, to restrict the passage of fire from one area to another.

Fire Rated Shutter Profiles

Single Skin Lath is used for smaller curtains. Insulated Twin Skin Lath is more robust and offers greater sound inhibition, superior heat insulation and greatly improved heat transfer when used with Fire Rated Shutters.

The installation of a fire shutter and its supporting structure is subject to building control regulations and if doubt exists as to the correct product to use, it is important to seek guidance from a Building Control or Fire Officer.

Fire shutters cannot be affixed to lightweight and hollow blocks. Please contact us for advice on fitting and for structural recommendations. Please note: Westwood Security Shutters Ltd does not wire back to the fire alarm system. This is the responsibility of the fire alarm engineer to supply (if required), control and commission.

Additional Fire Rated Shutter Options

  • Fusible links localised at the fire rated shutter, designed to melt at 68 degrees centigrade
  • When links have melted, a signal is sent to close the fire rated shutter
  • Powder coated finishes
  • Smoke sensor
  • Heat sensors
  • Emergency battery backup
