FireStar® counter shutters have a 3/4, 1 1/2, or 3-hour label rating for masonry or steel jambs (minimum 3/16). Also available in 1 1/2 hour rating for non-masonry walls with 16-gauge steel or wood studs.
The FireStar® counter shutter can be drop tested easily and reset in a matter of seconds at any time; no tools or service technicians are required. This can be done in addition to the doors required annual inspection by a trained door systems technician. By self-testing throughout the year, facility personnel can be even more confident that their door will function safely in the event of fire.
FireStar® counter shutters have been tested and approved to meet the requirements of well known agencies, such as Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual, and conform to NFPA Standard 80.
