The INFERNO fire rated roller shutter has been developed to solve a number of fire engineering problems and is designed to be used in high profile, high quality and technically demanding situations. The sizes for the Inferno Fire Shutter can be made of openings up to 5000H x 8500W and and have an FRL value of either 2 hours (-/120/-) or 4 hours (-/240/-) Fire Rating.

  • Installed as fully operational standard roller shutter or ‘hold open’ fire shutter (descending in event of fire)
  • Option to install as smoke barrier with addition of smoke detector (descending in event of smoke)
  • Up to the industry maximum of 5000H x 8500W for a 4 hour fire rating (-/240/-FRL)
  • Domestic, commercial or industrial installation
  • CSIRO tested to AS1530.4-1990; AS1905-2 compliant
  • Conforms to Building Code of Australia
  • Can be used in conjunction with high speed doors
  • Rollup capability frees up valuable side room; eliminates need for cavity wall space
  • Powdercoated and polyurethane finish
  • Head panels
  • Special cut out splayed bottom rail, rail to shape the door over gutters at the side of driveway
  • Motorised Options only
  • Automatic operation through logic control box
  • Touch sensitive auto reversing bottom rail
  • Photo electric safety beams
  • Siren and flashing strobe lights
  • Proximity key readers
  • Smoke detectors with activation switch
  • Individually coded remote hand transmitters for easy addition and deletion of separate units
  • Key operated isolating switch to enhance security
  • Outside key switch for external operation of door
  • Auto close

INFERNO can be installed and used in day to day operations to secure any opening whilst still retaining the fire rating of the building.
