Fire shutter doors for educational facilities

Fire safety is an absolute essential for educational buildings such as schools, colleges and universities – with government legislation increasingly focused on improving standards.

So, with the summer break upon us, thousands of facilities across the UK will be looking to increase fire safety measures during the six-week holiday.

Here we look the role specialist fire shutter doors can play in improving fire safety in educational facilities, and why the summer break is the best time to get new systems installed.


All schools are now required to have fire shutters in place within their kitchen and canteen areas, so UK Rapid Doors manufactures fire shutters that meet these standards and offer up to four hours of fire resistance.

These high-tech systems react to a signal from the fire alarm, automatically closing the shutters via a controlled descent that allows time for evacuation before sealing the location off. This delays the spread of fire from one part of the building to the next and ensures that the affected area can be quickly and efficiently cleared of pupils and staff before the shutters close.


With pupils and the majority of adult employees away for the summer, this is the perfect time to introduce fire safety shutters to an educational building in time for the 2018/19 school year. This allows our expert team time to install and test your new system thoroughly without a disruption to day-to-day operations that might during term time.
