Why Do You Need Fire-Rated Roll-Up Shutters?
The fire code specifies the exact technical requirements for shutters, ranging from grade to material. These regulations provide a minimum safety standard for the construction, machining and installation of fire shutters. The laws vary depending on your location. Therefore, be sure to check your local fire code and protect your business and neighbouring commercial properties and homes.
Fire shutters are designed to separate sections of your business, slowing the spread of smoke and flames to minimize damage and give staff and customers more time to escape.

Smoke inhalation is a major cause of injury and even death. Smoke vents can contain the spread of smoke and fire.
The fire shutters prevent smoke damage and control oxygen flow by restraining and preventing smoke from spreading. They are passive fire protection systems that can be used in conjunction with other active systems, such as sprinklers and alarm systems.
How Do Fire Shutters Work?
Fire shutters work to keep your business safe by creating a barrier between the fire and the rest of the building. This slows the spread of smoke and flames, giving staff and customers more time to escape.
Fire shutters are barriers installed indoors and window openings that stop and slow fire spread until emergency services arrive. Fire custom window shutters are made of materials that can withstand 45 minutes of heat from the fire, allowing people to escape from the building and protect against the fire’s spread to neighbouring properties.
Fire shutters can be connected to and triggered by fire alarms or have a built-in smoke or heat detector to automatically lower and create a barricade. Some may have both. In addition, some types roll down under their weight, while others have mechanics that close the door with a quick motorized system. In addition, some motorized fire shutter systems are designed to close down only to a certain level and act as a smoke barrier so people can still escape through the opening below. The purpose of fire shutters is to:
- Limit the damage a fire can cause
- Stop it from spreading
- Prevent the loss of life by compartmentalization.
There are many applications for fire shutters in both commercial and residential properties:
Windows & Doors
Fire shutters can be installed on all types of windows and doors, including single and double-leaf doors, sliding and folding doors.
Counters & Cabinets
Commercial kitchens have special requirements to protect staff and customers from the hazardous smoke. All cooking areas should have a fire rated counter shutters, but an extra level of safety can be provided by installing fire shutters on the cabinets below the cooking area.
Many garages contain flammable materials such as petrol, oil and paint. A fire in the garage can quickly spread to the house. Fire-rated overhead doors can be installed on garage doors to prevent this from happening.
Storefronts are often the target of vandalism and arson. Commercial fire shutters should be installed on storefront windows and doors to protect the store’s contents from being damaged or destroyed. Active fire barriers are the most effective way to secure your commercial property.
