The Fireguard FT range is a compact tubular driven fire shutter that provides a fire protection barrier for 1–4 hours.

Tested to BS EN 1634-1, and compliant with BS EN 16034: 2014. Constructed from steel sections of 76 mm cold rolled 20 gauge galvanized steel. The FT60 shutter provides a defence against the spread of fire and can be used as a security door on a day to day basis. The compact design allows the FT compact range to be installed in areas where traditional fire shutters are not possible. The system can we linked to audio/ visual deacon fire alarms to ensure automatic closing in case of fire detection with battery backup in the event of power failure.


The Fireguard FT roller shutter is commonly used in kitchen servery areas, schools, hospitals and commercial offices where installation restrictions for space require a compact system.
