Fire Shutters: SeceuroFire Flame Shutter

Security and fire protection combined – available in 30 minute and one, two or four hour ratings.

Flame Shutter is an electrically operated vertical fire shutter, consisting of a steel slatted curtain and galvanised steel box assembly and guide rails. The box, curtain, guide rails and bottom rail of the fire shutters can be powder coated as an optional extra.

Designed to be a security barrier during normal use and to be closed automatically during a test or an emergency situation. In the event of receiving a fire alarm signal the barrier will perform a powered descent to create a fire resistant barrier.

In the event of power failure Flame Shutter will close using the battery backup feature. The design of our SeceuroFire Fire Shutters allow for both face or reveal installations.


The Flame Shutters have been designed to offer a wide range of benefits, some of these include:
