Another 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.

These are our fire-rated, general purpose large roller shutters. our large roller shutters can be installed with a smoke detector and will descend automatically to be a smoke barrier. Our large roller shutters are ideal for use in high quality, high profile, technically demanding situations.


  • Installed as fully operational standard large 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 5000mm high x 8000mm wide and up to 4 hours fire rated -/240/30FRL
  • Domestic, commercial or industrial installation
  • CSIRO tested to AS1530 Part 4; 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


  • 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


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