FIRE RESISTANT RANGE INS-240

Insulated Fire Resistant Steel Roller Shutter

GUARDIAN'S FIRE SHUTTER, the INS-240 Fire resisting roller shutter door is purposely designed for large openings, where insulation and fire resistance is a requirement.

Due to its unique and ground breaking construction, the radiant heat levels around the FRINS240 roller shutter door drop from 65kw sq metre to 2.7 kw sq metre, this means that combustible materials can be stored half a metre away from a 1200oC inferno, increasing floor space and reducing risk and break down of fire compartmentation.

Fire crews can safely tackle the blaze right next to the door, and anyone unfortunate enough to be trapped without an immediate exit can safely walk past the GUARDAIN FRINS240 Fire roller shutter, without fear of the radiant heat being as dangerous to them as the fire itself.

Exova (Warrington) have tested the shutter to BS476 pt 20. This indicitive test shows the Insulation value of 1 Hour with the IEZ (Insulated Exclusion Zone) in place. Distances range from 100mm - 300mm. This test also shows no risk to fire from ignition at the specified time and temperature.

Professional Installation - FIRAS

The installation of a fire door or shutter is a complex procedure requiring a detailed understanding of the role played by each individual component. It therefore needs to be installed by someone with the correct training and expertise.

As approved Firas Registered fire doors and shutter installers we ensure a certified and traceable process from manufacture to installation.

FIRAS

FIRAS is a certification scheme for companies installing fire protection products and systems. No matter how good a product is, poorly installed its fire protection performance can be severely reduced.

We are certified installers of fire doors and shutters. Proper installation of fire shutter assemblies and door sets is fundamental to their overall performance.

Structure, Essential:
The LPC have a design guide which advises on all aspects ofconstruction and is available from their offices. The following are most common methods of construction fire walls which support fire resistant roller shutters:-

• Brick, Block or concrete involving a door opening with a concrete lintel across the head is suitable for up to 4 hour fire resistance.The minimum specification of the structural elements is advised in the design guide however the elements must be suitable for the requirement and able to securely hold steel fixings to support the door.

• Steel goalpost frame insulation encapsulated to support a fire roller shutter can be used up to 2 hour fire resisting.The steel must be adequate to support the door and wall structure and be insulated, the steel is required to a Hp/A230m(-1) and a critical temperature of 400C. 25mm insulation is adequate for this.

• Timber stud partition is suitable for up to 1 hour resistance however must be constructed to the minimum standard.

• Approved specialist structure which has been tested to BS 476 part 22. to the relevant fire resistance in combination with a fire roller shutter.

• Brick, block or concrete with steel lintel Insulated. Steel lintels must be insulated and flush when insulated with the block or brickwork max 2 hours fire resistance

Standard Specification
  • Galvanised Insulated twin skin steel lath 90mm x 24mm
  • Level 2 Control panel
  • Coil casing
  • Activation via 24V fire alarm connection

Activation Methods In A Fire

The primary activation method for fire shutters is via the main fire alarm system. The signal from the fire alarm is routed via one of the below control units, giving the shutter a command to close.

In situations where there is no main fire alarm panel we can provide a standalone system that activates the fire alarm via one of the methods below as indicated with a * (please note for a standalone system an Audio Visual FDI panel is required).

Maintenance Packages

Planned preventative maintenance

See our maintenance section or contact us for more information. Guardian's repair and maintenance services and engineers are accredited to the DHF's TS004 Repairs and Maintenance standard.

It is a legal requirement - as failure to show evidence of maintenance could mean prohibition & enforcement notices being served and fines up to £5000 and imprisonment for 2 years. 'Safety In Use' - the New European CEN Standards legislation - states that all types of door should be maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair. For further clarification visit www.dhfonline.org.uk.

Routine maintenance prolongs the operational life of the installation and ensures that the installation is kept in good working order - helping to prevent accidents and damage which in turn results in down time, effecting work flow, productivity and resulting in loss of revenue. It assists in identifying potential problems which can easily be rectified.

Guardian Doors EMC3B Audio Visual FDI Panel

Principally this unit is designed to delay the closing of the fire shutter; generally the fire alarm is linked to the audio visual unit. There is no need for a separate relay; there is already a relay in the FDI. 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 relay in the panel to close the door.

Fire alarm interface required – N/O volt free contact.

FCP03 Audio Visual Fire Door Interface (FDI) Panel

FCP03 Audio Visual FDI Panel

Guardian Doors FCP03 Audio Visual FDI Panel

The FCP03 Fire Control Panel provides total control of commercial and industrial fire resisting roller shutter doors in the event of a fire. The FCP03 interfaces directly with the fire alarm on the premises and provides the fire-resisting roller shutter with the intelligence to close in the event of an emergency situation, protecting both occupants and premises from exposure to smoke and flame damage.

The panel can be programmed to suit the specific requirements of the premises that it protects. The FCP03 provides both visual & audio warnings before the shutter closes, indicating to anyone in danger to move from the shutter's path to avoid injury. Repeater panels are also available for use on the other side of the shutter.Self-contained batteries to maintain the panel in the event of a power failure. Information is displayed in real time, using 3x7segment displays.

Audiovisual Warning supplied as standard,16 different audio tones available.

Panel can be activated by volt-free Normally Open or Normally Closed contacts, 2 to 30 VDC input, break glass units or heat/smoke detectors*.

Options include:

  • Solenoid Drop
  • Powered Close & Two Stage Closing

All outputs are individually fused on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Dedicated Programmable safety input can be set to carry out a variety of functions applicable to safety control movements. Removable connector blocks complement the installation and wiring of the panel. LED's provide visual indications for the on-board relays.

Unit can detect mains failure, low batteries, fire signals and, via volt-free relays, can interface with building management, escalators and lifts.

The FCP03 is manufactured to the latest New Approach Directives.
