Gandhi Automations fire shutters paramount for safety

Thursday, November 24, 2022, 08:00 Hrs  [IST]

Fire shutters play a vital role in fire safety of buildings and industrial premises. Their correct specifications, installation and use are paramount to the safety of all those who use the facility.

Fire shutters are the unsung heroes of the fire safety because for most of their working lives they just work like any other doors. However, if fire breaks out, a fire shutter must fulfil its role as an engineered safety device, in order to hold back the spread of fire and smoke and to save lives and property.

Fire rated doors / shutters are applied in various places such as industrial, commercial, institutional, and retail projects where fire protection is required. We take fire shutters for granted. We need to regularly check that all parts continue to function correctly.

We expect that a jobbing builder or small contractor will be able to install a complex engineered fire safety device. What they don’t realize is that all of the components have to be able to work together to ensure that the shutter assembly will work effectively in the event of a fire. Certified fire shutters with proper fitting are necessary to avoid any damage to property and lives.

Fire shutters / doors by Gandhi Automations are engineered carefully with the following features:

Auto closing mechanism
Fire doors / shutters designed by Gandhi Automations Pvt Ltd are equipped with fusible link mechanism. Upon sensing a temperature of 74°C, the fusible link mechanism releases the brake of the motor and allows it to descend by gravity.

The operating system can be directly wired for activation by fire alarm system or smoke detectors.

Sturdy construction
Fire doors / shutters are constructed from cold rolled galvalume / galvanised steel / stainless steel laths with a minimum thickness of 0.9 mm. The interlocked profiles are securely held using specially designed profile ends which act as a curtain alignment system thus eliminating lateral movement of the profiles. Fire shutters / doors designed by Gandhi Automations can resist fire up to four hours. Gandhi and Exova Warrington UK comply with BS 476: Part 22: 1987 standards for stability and integrity for up to 4 hours.

Frequent inspection / maintenance of the components are of utmost importance. At Gandhi Automations, the maintenance team checks that all parts continue to function properly.
