Well constructed 4 Hour rated fire resistant products facilitate the safe exit of people when there is a fire. They also tend to control and minimise damage to effected areas as they prevent fire or smoke spreading whilst they can also protect neighbouring properties from damage. Westwood Security 4 Hour Fire Rated Shutters are ideal for use in conjunction with the existing and new fire alarm systems. Normal configuration allows the 4 Hour fire rated shutters to either open or close on a command from the fire alarm, thus providing a barrier or, if applicable, allowing safe evacuation of the building.
Please note that we manufacture Single and Twin Skin Lath Fire Shutters tested to Exova Fire and Safety BSEN 1634-1 and providing up to 4 Hours of fire resistance. The Double Skin Insulated Lath offers additional heat radiation protection.

Correct installation of fire door assemblies is fundamental to their overall performance of 4 Hour rated fire shutters in the event of a fire and should only be carried out by competent experienced professionals. Our engineers have been trained to the standards required to meet FIRAS requirements. Third party accreditation of installers is covered by Approved Document B of Building Regulations.
FIRAS is a certification scheme from Exova Warrington Fire for companies installing fire protection products and systems. A FIRAS certificate is a measure of installer competency, thus providing confidence to specifiers, enforcement authorities, building owners and occupiers.
The installation of a 4 Hour rated fire shutter and its supporting structure is subject to building control regulations and if doubt exists as to the correct product to use, it is important to seek guidance from a Building Control or Fire Officer.
Please note that 4 Hour rated fire shutters cannot be affixed to lightweight and hollow blocks. Please contact us for advice on fitting and for structural recommendations. Please note: Westwood Security Shutters Ltd does not wire back to the fire alarm system. This is the responsibility of the fire alarm engineer to supply (if required), control and commission.
