LPCB Certified Fire Shutter - UK Standard Fire Shutter

British manufactured and certified Fire rated shutters

Hart fire-resistant shutters, rated from 30 minutes to 240 minutes fire resistance, are manufactured to high standard specifications, building regulations and insurance requirements. They can be integrated into existing fire and security alarm systems, protecting people, products and your premises during a fire outbreak.

Assessed and certified by the LPCB to BS EN 16034 tested to BS EN 1634-1 up to 7m wide and 7m high, Hart Firebrand shutters are manufactured and installed to the highest standards. A controlled labelling procedure ensures product identity, traceability, and compliance.

Legislation enforced on the 1st November 2019 requires that fire doors and shutters are tested and compliant to the latest standard: BS EN 1634-1. Prohibited doors and shutters supplied to the old BS 476 standard are not compliant with the law, and you are liable should you knowingly install a shutter not manufactured to the latest standard. Make sure your door supplier has a relevant certificate

Manufactured to International Standards


Geared electric in line motor unit with limit switch override. Unit capable of brake release via fusible link or solenoid to provide safe controlled rate of door closure under gravity.

Fire resistance

30 minute, 60 minute, 120 minute and 240 minute



Door Dimensions: max 7000 x 7000 mm. All doors are made to measure to specific requirements. Larger sizes available as special design.


2 hour (120 mins) and 4 hour (240 mins): A minimum of 20g for doors up to 5m or 25 square meters and thereafter 18g. 1/2 hour (30 mins) and 1 hour (60 mins): A minimum of 20g discretional above 5m or 25 square meters.


As required by the machinery directive and BSEN standards enforced by the HSE, a safety brake is fitted to the roller to prevent the shutter from falling in the event of drive failure. Presence sensing safety sensors and audio-visual alarms are required to protect pedestrians.

When the doorway is to be used by pedestrians, the fire shutter must have safety systems fitted to BSEN 12453. We recommend as a minimum, an AV warning supported by a light curtain, or multiple photocells controlled through a battery backed-up control panel. Should a pedestrian be in the line of the door when the fire shutter closes, the door will stop and only continue when the obstruction is clear. The door will then continue to close unless the beam is interrupted again.

Note: Safety edge devices are not permitted due to the flammable rubber content. Other presence sensing devices should be used to protect the pedestrian area. Safety brakes are fitted to all fire roller shutters to prevent uncontrolled closure in the event of mechanical failure.


These heavy brackets designed to support the casing and roller in a fire situation are required over 60 minute fire resistance dependant on the size


Power supply: Single phase or three phase as specified on the quotation.

Normal operation: Hold to run press buttons or key switch.

For normal operation, Hart fire shutters are press button, or for security purposes and prevention of unauthorised use, key switch operation. For safety reasons, the location of the push button or key switch must be positioned in an area where the operator will have a full view of the entire door. During operation, ‘Constant pressure must be maintained on the button by the operator’ until the door is fully closed. Additional safety must be provided for pedestrians if this is not the case.

Fire activation:

Fire shutters activated by a sacrificial fusible link will operate the door independently when the heat around the link reaches approximately 72°C. The fire roller shutter motor comes complete with a 24V dc energised to hold actuator. When the actuator is de-energised, it will release the drive brake, and the door will close by controlled descent in a safe and controlled manner (fail-safe). As an option, the door is supplied with a fire control panel which gives a volt-free signal to allow closure. The fire control panel holds the shutter open during a power failure, for up to 60 minutes, via internal batteries and comes with audio/visual warnings. During installation and commissioning the actuator must be energised, to prevent the motor from turning and the door from closing. The fire shutter is reset by re-energising the actuator and giving an open command. A combined fusible-link and actuator option are also available, including upgraded sophistication to suit client needs.

Hart fire shutters can be connected through local or building fire and smoke control systems and supported by client risk assessment to ensure compliance to BSEN 12453.Manual override: By hand chain through motor (very slow and not suitable for frequent operation)
