    What is an Essex fire shutter?

    When a fire occurs, fire shutters in Essex will close and contain a fire. Our fire shutters in Essex are similar in design to standard roller shutters, but they feature several alterations to the design. These changes make sure that the integrity of your fire shutter isn’t compromised in the event of a fire.

    There are two options to activate your fire shutters in Essex. They can be activated by either the triggering of the fire alarm system or by a local heat/smoke detector. The type of activation required must be considered within the business’s risk assessments. Speak to our expert team today to discuss our fire shutters in Essex.

    How do fire shutters work?

    Standard tubular motor fire shutters in Essex operate upon receiving a signal from the fire alarm system or a key switch for security.

    For industrial applications, you may wish to consider conventional inline fire shutters in Essex. These are activated by the alarm system to drive the motor. A failsafe mechanism such as a fusible link can also trigger the solenoid release mechanism, which would result in a controlled gravitational descent.

    Our fire shutters in Essex also feature a control panel, which can be programmed to allow options like two-stage closing and any delays required. Depending on the control panel type, they can also provide audio and visual warnings. These will notify those in proximity to the Essex fire shutter, which is activated and operating.
