Rolling Fire Shutter Installation for Windows, Doors, & Counters

A fire is one of the most devastating things that can happen to your business or home. Because our commercial and residential properties are made with flammable building materials and have flammable items inside of them, any fire has the potential to destroy an entire building. Fortunately, we can recommend an excellent way to mitigate your risk of a fire: Install roller fire shutters.

Why Do You Need Fire-Rated Roll-Up Shutters?

Fire-rated roll-up shutters are a legal imperative for your business or residential property in Toronto. Not only do they protect your property and your business assets, but regulations require them. Fire-rated roll-up shutters are a way of ensuring the highest level of safety for employees and customers alike.
Fire codes outline the precise specifications for shutters, from the make to the materials. These rules provide a minimum safety standard when it comes to construction, mechanics, and installation of fire-rated roll-up shutters. Laws vary based on your location. So, be sure to check your local fire code, and protect not only your business but neighboring commercial properties and homes, too.

Fire shutters seek to compartmentalize sections of your business slowing the spread of smoke and flame in order to minimize damage and provide staff and customers more time to escape.


Three-For-One: Security, Fire Protection, and Insulation

There are plenty of reasons to purchase fire shutters for the windows and doors of your commercial or residential property. Foremost, they provide an added layer of security and insulation.

Smoke protection is essential in fire emergencies, smoke inhalation is a major cause of injury and even death. Smoke protection shutters can contain the spread of smoke and fire.

How Do Fire Shutters Work?

Fire shutters work similarly to traditional roller shutters unless there is an immediate fire. Most of the time, the shutters have a connection to your fire-alarm system. When the system detects smoke, it will trigger the screens to close via a motorized mechanism.
A fire-shuttered window or door can include various features, depending on your preferences and needs. For instance, some models come with a heat-detection system instead of a smoke detector for more precise readings. You might also choose shutters that can close under their own weight, so you don’t have to worry about motor malfunctions.

It is particularly useful if you travel for extended periods.

Controlling light inside of your home is extremely difficult, especially if you want to eliminate all sources of light. For residents who work nightshifts or find it impossible to sleep with light exposure, roller shutters can be an effective tool for blocking out the sun and improving your quality of sleep.
