How long can a fire shutter contain a fire for?
It all depends on the fire rating level. Fire shutters are manufactured to three main fire rating levels, with the number indicating the number of minutes the product can provide fire protection for before any potential damage to the rest of the building can occur. Our fire shutters can provide fire protection for one hour (E60), two hours (E120), or four hours (E240).
Does my business need a fire shutter?
If you’re in a commercial, industrial, or non-domestic sector, the government advises – in their fire safety in the workplace guidance – areas with extensive catering facilities to be in a separate building. If this isn’t possible, which is common, it is strongly advised to install fire-resisting constructions to separate the areas, such as fire shutters. Fire shutters also help you abide by fire safety regulations and fire risk assessments.
What colours can fire shutters come in?
Fire shutters can be designed to match the aesthetic of your premises with high-quality powder-coated finishes. Whatever colour you want, we can manufacture to your request.
Do fire shutters need to be CE marked?
If we’re selling in the EU, yes. But, since Brexit, most goods sold in Great Britain that were previously subject to CE marking will need UKCA marking.
