What Are Fire Shutters?
To protect lives and property against fire, homes must meet a number of building code requirements including having smoke detectors and fire alarms throughout all levels. Sprinkler systems may also be mandated in the case of multi-dwellings and commercial buildings.
Likewise, a FIRE SHUTTER is a fire safety feature that primarily has had applications in commercial buildings. These fire shutters are now also finding their way into the residential property market. This is an extension of a wider strategy to develop and promote more efficient ways to reduce the risk of fires.
The main purpose of Fire Shutters is to protect fire from spreading fire to neighbours but can also be used as a locking security shutter.
