A power operated single-skinned fire resistant automatic steel shutter consisting of concave, solid profiles. Offers good security and fire resistance with an integral smoke check and curtain suspension system. On large doors, wind endlocks are fitted to prevent excessive deflection and curtain retention. Gilgen Industrial heavy duty steel fire resistant vertical rolling shutter doors are designed for industrial, commercial and retail applications and are suitable for internal compartmentation functions.The product is specifically designed for low cycle usage and is generally intended to be normally left in the open position for automatic activation in the event of a fire alarm signal, or closed on a daily basis for loss prevention/ security purposes. It is tested and assessed to provide maximum 4 hour resistance in accordance with BS 476-22. Components: Manufactured from 75mm deep, concave galvanised steel scroll lath curtain, galvanised steel bottom rail, one piece side guides, steel endplates, barrel assembly complete with curtain suspension and smoke control system at the head of the opening.Smoke check system: A 'patented' curtain suspension/ smoke check system is fixed at the head of opening. The system is designed to both support the main curtain assembly in the closed position, providing full fire integrity, which also negates the requirement for a full head casing and also effect a full width mechanical smoke check facility which significantly reduces the opportunity for smoke passage through the head of the shutter.Fire performance: To DIN 4102. Door section element materials are Class A2 (non-flammable) and have been tested and assessed to provide maximum 4 hour resistance in accordance with BS 476-22.Weight (door assembly): 30 kg/m².Environmental ingress protection level (motor and controls): No performance determined - use in dry, dust free environments only.Motor drive duty rating: Class S3 – 30 %.Ironmongery: It is not normal practice to supply secondary locking devices on life safety equipment.Size (maximum w x l): 7000 x 7000 mm. Larger sizes can be supplied on application, normally to a maximum area of 49 m², but even greater area’s can be supplied for extended applications which can be agreed with full project specific interface designs and fire assessment documentation.Operation: Electrically operated by means of a 3 phase - 415 volt motor unit c/w an integral manual controlled descent system (CDO) for use in the event of manual operation and automatic fire activation. The unit is mounted external to the drive barrel and head hood casing (where supplied). Mains power supply required 3 phase - neutral & earth 220/415V ac 10 amp terminating in a suitable isolator to suit the environment. This should be positioned on the motor side of the door and within 1 m of the opening and at high level adjacent to the motor drive unit, unless otherwise agreed.Control: Pre-wired low level push button station with open, close and emergency stop functions. Fire Activation Systems: Auto reset solenoid unit with manual test and reset cables and secondary gravity fail safe fusible link. Safety Options: Impulse or remote fire activation; additional photo cell safety beam with Firegard E control systemAudible / visual/ voice warning devices.Finish: The main exposed metal work structure and optional casings are mainly a galvanised self finish as standard, but optional polyester powder coat finish can be supplied to the whole or part of the door assemblies and optional head casingsActivation: A comprehensive range of fire activation systems with auxiliary audible/ visual and safety devices are available to accommodate a range of fire strategies, including but not limited to local heat detection, electro mechanical solenoid units for linking to the main building fire alarm with either manual reset and test cables or fully automatic electrical reset function, optional Firegard interface panels with fault monitoring, LED status lights, key switch fire test facilities, automatic power detection for either power driven or manual controlled descent closure with options for delayed activation with two stage closing sequence.Safety Options:Standard: Impulse/ dead man operation with gravity fail safe closing on mains failure.Casings: Note the Gilgen Firetex product does not require a hood casing or motor cover to comply with the required fire performance, but these are available for aesthetic purposes, if required.Removable 3 sided motor cover (to cover the exposed part of the drive motor, outside of the 3 sided hood profile).Organization:Fire Insurance Committee.FIRTO Tested Smoke Check.Institute of Fire Prevention Officers.Lloyds Insurance.London Scientific Services.Loss Prevention And Certification Board (LPCB).Warrington Fire Research Centre.Product literature:http://www.ribaproductselector.com/documentdetails.aspx?ci=03743&f=COL264135.pdf&pg=5
