FIRAS scheme for Rolling Shutters
Rolling shutters, whether industrial units or used to create compartments only in the event of a fire are engineered products that rely heavily on their correct installation to work effectively when required to do so.
Using a FIRAS certificated company ensures that installers, assessed by FIRAS for their competence, will be adequately supervised and will only use appropriate shutters within their tested and approved scope.
FIRAS installers are required to maintain records of every contract undertaken and to inform FIRAS of all contracts so that random inspections of the installation work can be undertaken.
On completion the company will issue a certificate of conformity and apply a discrete label to the shutter with contact details.
Shutters certificated under the CERTIFIRE product certification scheme are individually labelled and supplied with installation information. Having such products fitted by a FIRAS certificated installer provides confidence to all parties in the shutter's ability to maintain its designed performance.
The FIRAS scheme for fire resisting doors and doorsets was developed in conjunction with the Door and hardware Federation.
Details of companies certificated under the scheme can be found in the Register.
