The preparation of the supporting structure of the fire shutters has to be constructed to a strict set of rules as detailed in our data sheet 600 series and in an installation guide.
Legislation enforced on the 1st November 2019 requires fire doors and shutters to be tested and compliant to the latest standard: BS EN 1634-2
Hart Firebrand shutters are assessed and certified by the LPCB to BS EN 16034 tested to BS EN 1634-2
Doors supplied to the old BS 476 standard are not compliant with the law and you are liable should you knowingly install a shutter that is not compliant.
Hart Doors help to protect people and property from the risk of fire by integrating specialist, fully tested and certified fire doors and fire shutter solutions into their environments.
Our in-depth industrial and commercial door industry experience, product knowledge and ability to tackle complex site challenges can help companies create safer workplaces for their staff and customers.
Our fire-resistant shutters can be fitted to brickwork, and blockwork with concrete lintels in the case of 4 hour doors. 2 hour resisting doors can be fitted to insulated and fire-protected steel when the steel is fully encapsulated and 1 hour and less fire shutters can be fitted to timber or metal stud partitioning provided it is one hour fire boarded and adequate supporting frame is provided within the structure specifically for the door.
The fire shutters are automatically operated in fire by simple fusible link or battery supported control systems with warning devices providing optional increasing levels of control and sophistication. All materials can be powder coated in any RAL colour to suit the individual counter type and automatic activation in a fire situation can be via fusible link or fire alarm activated. Optional ATEX compliance is available.
