DMI Security Group Ltd supplies, installs and maintains Fire Rated Shutters.

The Fire shutters are electrically operated and consist of a steel slatted curtain and galvanised steel box assembly and guides. The shutters can be powder coated, please see standard colour chart as an optional extra.

The Fire Shutter is designed to be a security barrier during normal use and to be closed automatically during a test or an emergency situation. In the event of receiving a fire alarm signal the Fire Shutter curtain will perform a powered decent,  creating a fire resistant barrier.

In the advent of a power failure the shutter will close using a battery backup facility.

Automatic Operation

There are two main methods of automatic operation, alongside the standard key switch.

fire relay means that the shutter is connected directly to the fire alarm system: When the alarm is activated the shutter will close. This type of operation is principally the most commonly used means of release. A volt free signal is required from the fire alarm.

Battery Back Up – if under fire conditions there is a power failure, the shutter must have a means of ensuring closure. to The battery backup will give the shutter power for a minimum of one operation, under fire conditions.

As an option an Audio/Visual Warning unit can be used in connection with the Fire Shutter. This unit is connected to the fire alarm system, and operates, usually with a time delay. During this delay an alarm is sounded, warning those in close proximity to the shutter that it is about to close. This will allow personnel to exit the affected area. The time setting can be set by our engineer.
