Why You Need Fire Shutters

Installing fire shutters is essential to protect your property, comply with fire safety regulations, enhance security measures, and provide peace of mind in case of emergencies.

These shutters play a vital role in containing potential fire hazards, restricting the spread of flames, and minimising property damage during a fire incident.

Fire shutters help in preventing the loss of life by creating barriers that slow down the progression of flames and smoke. By adhering to fire safety regulations, you not only ensure the safety of occupants but also avoid costly penalties and legal implications.

The added layer of security provided by fire shutters can act as a deterrent to intruders, offering an extra level of protection for your property.

This comprehensive approach not only safeguards your physical assets but also contributes significantly to the peace of mind, knowing that you have taken proactive steps to mitigate risks and protect your space.

Protect Your Property

Fire shutters safeguard various properties such as warehouses, factories, and high-rise buildings by containing smoke and fire, minimising damage and ensuring occupant safety.

These essential safety features act as a crucial barrier between the spread of fire and the occupants inside.

In warehouses, where valuable inventory is stored, fire shutters play a vital role in preventing loss and ensuring business continuity.

In factories, where machinery and equipment are at risk, these shutters are a critical element in maintaining operations and safeguarding workers. In high-rise buildings, fire shutters help restrict the movement of fire and smoke through different floors, providing crucial time for evacuation and preventing widespread damage.

Comply with Fire Safety Regulations

Fire shutters help businesses comply with strict fire safety regulations, particularly in high-risk environments like power plants and research laboratories, ensuring legal adherence and operational safety.

These specially designed shutters provide a vital layer of protection against fire hazards, effectively compartmentalising areas to prevent the spread of flames and smoke. By integrating them with advanced fire alarm systems, businesses can significantly enhance their safety measures and response capabilities during emergencies.

Enhanced Security

Fire shutters not only offer fire protection but also enhance security through features like security doors, grilles, and curtains, providing a comprehensive safety solution for properties.

These security doors, grilles, and curtains are designed to deter unauthorised access, intruders, and burglars, making it challenging for them to breach the property.

The reinforced materials and locking mechanisms of these features add an additional layer of protection, ensuring that the premises are safeguarded against potential security threats.

The seamless integration of these security elements within the fire shutters not only fortifies the overall security of the building but also contributes to a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing design.

By combining fire protection with advanced security measures, property owners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their assets are well-protected from multiple risks.

Peace of Mind

With fire-resistant sectional doors and advanced security features, fire shutters offer peace of mind to property owners, ensuring effective smoke containment and security measures during emergencies.

These specialised shutters are designed to withstand high temperatures and prevent the spread of fire, creating a barrier between the flames and the interior of the building.

This critical feature not only protects valuable assets but also provides valuable time for occupants to evacuate safely.

The security features integrated into fire shutters enhance the overall protection of the property, deterring unauthorised access and ensuring that the premises are secure even in challenging situations.

Factors to Consider in the Specification of a Fire Shutter

Fire Shutters UK manufacture and supplies, and install nationwide. You should consider many factors before settling on one type of fire shutter. 

Fire Resistance Level

A fire shutter door can withstand fire under test conditions for a given duration of time. The effectiveness of a fire shutter in May 2024 ranges on a scale of 60, 120, or 240-minute.

It represents timing for the prevention of significant damage to buildings. Our fire doors are tested to ‘Rigid’ and ‘Flexible’ structures and offer up to four-hour fire resistance.


Security is a significant concern for businesses and homeowners. It is paramount to consider the security level provided by fire-rated shutters. You can add a fire alarm and other security alarm systems for extra insurance. 

Commercial premises prefer additional protection, such as bullet locks, to the roller shutters to mitigate potential break-ins.

Perforated shutters are also a fantastic option for retail outlets. They act as heavy, immobile objects providing the best compromise between security and visibility, especially during business hours.

Cost and Budget

Fire-rated shutters can cost from £100 to around £1,500. The choice of a fire shutter door is dependent on durability and cost.

We offer fire-resistant roller shutters that last a lifetime and, at the same time, guarantee quality and value for money.

Our brand is reputable and does not compromise the quality of shutters or security doors.


Fire shutters enhance the overall appearance of your business.

For instance, perforated shutters are aesthetically pleasing and offer the best compromise between security and visibility, which is best suited for business fronts.


To no small extent, fire shutters reduce interruption by traffic, mechanics, factories, and heavy machinery.

They enhance efficiency in business operations and minimise noise pollution. With fire curtains, you reduce the risk of your fire alarm signal going off.

Individual Needs

Fire shutters come in different types depending on individual needs. Some are needed for commercial premises, while others are for private premises needs.

Other variables include heat insulation, fire resistance, and weather protection.

If you would like to receive even more information on Fire Shutters, contact us today!

Mode of Operation

Regulators recommend that existing fire shutters be operated manually or via fusible links.

When the set temperature is reached, it will cause the fire shutter to close automatically without relying on human-computer interaction.

Integrated Fire Interface

Blinds equipped with integrated fire interface panels can be automatically operated and integrated into the building alarm system.

This means that even if no fire is visible, the shutters will automatically lower, thus preventing further fires.

Barrel Support Frames

Barrel support frames are not the only party responsible for containing the fire.

Barrel frames are a vital fire system in supporting large-sized fire shutters, making them resist dropping when temperatures are high.

Other Roller Shutters

Non-fire security shutters play an essential role in fire risk assessment.

They provide an emergency escape route for a small number of individuals in a building.

Servicing and Testing

Beyond installation, proper testing and servicing of fire-resistant shutters are part of the routine maintenance of a building to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.

You should check your fire curtain as frequently as your fire alarm to ensure it is running to its optimum efficiency. 

Fire Rating

The fire shutter’s level depends on the hours of fire protection operation they have.

If the blind has a four-hour mark, they can endure the flame for four hours.

The fire protection application assesses facility information and certificate numbers to validate blind ratings.

Types of Fire Shutters

A fire shutter door controls flames and smoke inside in the event of a fire, and there are various types you can choose from.

Installation is made strategically inside the building to prevent the spread of fire and fumes. Like alarms, these devices automatically react upon heat, smoke, and fire detection.

Some types of fire shutters offer both fire and theft protection. However, most general safety shutters do not provide any fire protection.

Fire shutters are installed above the existing security doors and buildings. They can be made of the following materials:

  • Masonry
  • Concrete
  • Wooden frames
  • Steel frames

Installation Specifications

Different brands and models of blinds have their unique installation specifications. Some fire shutters are operated manually, but many models are built to activate fire detection automatically.

The fire shutter is suitable for maintaining its integrity for a specified period in the event of a fire. They are rated for 1-4 hours to withstand the fire.

Fire resistance depends on the surrounding walls and structure. Choosing the blinds that best suit their location and purpose requires expertise and experience.

Fire Safety Standards

Fire shutters are manufactured and designed by fire safety standards to prevent the spread of smoke and fire during a fire.

Many types of fire curtains are connected to the entire fire detection system of the building and are activated by the alarm system. Some types have built-in heat and smoke detectors to improve safety.

The specific installation conditions determine the most suitable type of blinds. The shutters for smaller openings are designed with tubular motors and are mostly installed on the door. Their score is two hours.

Unlike the bulk motor model, the latter is a more traditional fire shutter, used for larger openings, requires two to four hours of fire rating, and is installed in the unit on the side of the opening.

Types of CE Marked Fire Shutters

Three different types of fire rated roller shutters can be CE-marked and manufactured. Each form of fire curtain has its own set of features and benefits.

The three types of fire shutter doors are:

  • Tubular Motor Fire Shutter
  • Gravity Fail-Safe Tubular Motor Fire Shutter
  • Incline Fire Shutter

If you are interested in knowing which fire shutter will meet your requirements, get in touch today, and a member of our team will be happy to walk you through the advantages of each.

Fire Shutter Specifications

Fire Doors can only install manufactured fire shutters that meet the Extended Application Report’s standards (EXAP).

A registered testing body provides the BS EN 1634-1 test results and produces a report that manufacturers must follow in combination with BS EN 15269-10 and EN 13241.

We also take into account the following specifications:

Opening sizes

We can install fire-resistant shutters in bespoke sizes, but the most common openings are 600mm clear opening width/height and 700mm clear opening width/height.

If you require bespoke measurements, we can cater to any requests provided we receive accurate measurements. 

Fire Rating

We can install fire resistant shutters to the following fire ratings:

E60 Fire Integrity – One-hour fire resistance.
E120 Fire Integrity – Two-hour fire resistance.
E240 Fire Integrity – Four-hour fire resistance.

Curtain Lath

Cast end locks are 75mm broad curved interlocking galvanised steel 22swg solid lath.

Guide Channels

The dimensions of the structural apertures will determine the guide type. A normal fire shutter would have a guide of 65mm x 2.5mm.

The EXAP report specifies the barrel type. The mild steel tube is different based on the clear opening measurements.

Operation Type

Fire shutters are installed with the following operation types:

240 volts for a single-phase motor
415 volts for a three-phase motor

Safety Brake

According to BS EN 12453, a safety brake is necessary, and the type depends on the shaft size and weight (Ranges from 16mm to 60mm)


It was built from 75mm x 50mm x 5mm steel angle with punched gaps to allow for expansion in the event of a fire.

End Plates

The type of endplate depends on the EXAP report. The end plates are fixed to the steel fixing angle, which spans the full height of the fire shutter.


The canopy is the same width and form as the endplate, with a 50mm top lip perforated for an extension.

The following structural types are tested before fire door installation:

  • Flexible structures, including timber and drywall.
  • Rigid structures such as steel or masonry.

Benefits of Fire Doors

There are many benefits associated with the installation of a fire door. These include:

Reduced Impact of Fire

Fire curtains significantly contain flames in a specific region, reducing property and life risks. They aid in compliance with commercial risk assessment and regulations.

Fire shutters also minimise insurance premiums and provide an additional level of security.

Compliance With the Government Guidelines

The government guidelines acknowledge the requirement for fire curtains. Their integration is in the design stage of commercial and home-use buildings.

Fire shutters are mostly installed internally, which can be altered like other roller shutters.

• Enhance safety for customers and employees

• Protection of property from theft

• Enhance business aesthetics and value

We are a one-stop solution for all shutter requirements for your premises, whether for commercial or home use. We offer many solutions to our customers to ensure that their shutters are safe and secure.
