Fire Shutters // A1 Shutters Flameshield 240
The Flameshield 240 Industrial Fireshutter - the heavy duty solution for industry
This fire shutter is designed to provide a heavy duty solution for industry and is a popular option for a wide
range of industrial applications.
So if you’re looking for proven quality and built-in reliability when it comes to meeting fire safety demands, the
Flameshield 240 industrial fire shutter is the heavy duty solution for industry. This still remains a very popular
product, as it is perfect for a wide range of industrial applications.
Self Coiling, Chain operated (through a geared manual unit), Electrically operated 1 PH / 3PH.
All electric fire shutters are available in 3 phase, 415 volts, 50hz or 1 phase, 240 volts, 50hz.
The shutters are driven by a geared electric motor, which has an integral controlled descent mechanism,
emergency hand chain facility and push button starter.
The shutters rate of descent is controlled through the gears being constantly engaged, the closure speed is
approximately 100mm per second. The clutch can be reset and the door can be raised and lowered in a
normal manner. Each motor incorporates a relay inhibitor to prevent the solenoid ‘burning out’.
- Activation is generally by means of a fusible link, solenoid release or both
- Units available in 1 phase or 3 phase
- The motor unit has the facility to simulate a fire test via a pull and reset cord.
SELF COILING OPERATION
All manual fire shutters are designed that they should be left in the open position and close only under fire
conditions. The self coiling manual fire shutter is under sprung so that closes quickly in the event of a fire. The
self coiling shutters have secondary guide channels to govern a drop bar; this falls under its own weight once
the fusible link has been activated.
- Maximum overall shutter size 2850mm wide x 3000mm high
- This manual fire shutter is designed to be left in the open position and close under fire conditions
- Frequent use is not recommended,the shutters are under sprung to enable the door to close quickly under fire conditions
- Activation of this door is by means of fusible link only, this is a soldered link designed to melt at 68° centigrade, this releases the drop bar and closes the door under its own weight.
MODES OF ACTIVATION
Fusible Link Release
On activation the link which is a soldered link separates and releases at 68 degrees centigrade, on the
manual shutter this will release the drop bar and the shutter will close under its own weight, on the electric
shutters the manual brake release is activated and the shutter will close under a controlled manner.
Manual Solenoid Release
All solenoid release mechanisms are designed to be linked into the fire alarm, the signal required from the
fire alarm is 24 volt D.C. 0.5 amps on activation. The signal from the fire alarm will trigger the manual brake
release and allow the door to close under a controlled descent.
Auto Solenoid Release
Again this is linked to the fire alarm and the signal required from the fire alarm is24 volt D.C. 0.5 amps. This is the most commonly used activation allowing for frequent testing and re-setting, when the door is returned to the open position (after removal of the fire signal), the solenoid can be automatically reset.
Audio Visual Warning (FDI)
Principally this unit is designed to delay the closing of the fire shutter, generally the fire alarm is linked to the
audio visual unit and from the audio visual unit into the solenoid. On activation from the fire alarm the unit starts
to “flash & sound”, this unit contains a programmable timer which effectively delays the signal to the solenoid
to close the door.
PAINT FINISH OPTION
To compliment the aesthetics of your application, this product can be powder coated to any BS or RAL colour
(subject to availability).
