Fire Rated Shutters

Fire shutters are the unsung heroes of the fire safety as most of the time they work like any other doors, while during a fire breakout, it acts as an engineered fire safety device.

Fire shutters play a vital role in fire safety of buildings and industrial premises. Their correct specifications, installation and use is paramount to the safety of all those who use the facility.

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 realise 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 are necessary to avoid any damage to property and lives.

Fire shutters/doors by Gandhi Automations are engineered carefully with feature mentioned below:

Auto closing mechanism
Fire doors/shutters designed by Gandhi Automations are equipped with fusible link mechanism. Upon sensing a temperature of 74¦C, the fusible link mechanism releases the brake of the motor and allows it to descend by gravity. The operating system can be directly wired for activation by fire alarm system or smoke detectors.

Sturdy construction
Fire doors/shutters are constructed from cold rolled galvalume/galvanised steel/stainless steel laths with a minimum thickness of 0.9 mm. The interlocked profiles are securely held using specially designed profile ends which act as a curtain alignment system, thus eliminating lateral movement of the profiles.

Fire shutters/doors designed by Gandhi Automations can resist fire for up to four hours. Gandhi Automations and Warringtonfire (Australia) Pty Ltd comply with BS 476: Part 22: 1987 standards for stability and integrity for up to four hours.

Frequent inspection/maintenance of the components are of utmost importance. Gandhi Automations´ maintenance team checks that all parts continue to function correctly without compromise.
