Fire Protection Closures

Fire protection closures (including self-closing doors, flaps, curtains) are designed to prevent the passage of fire or smoke through openings in walls and ceilings for a defined period of time. In many areas of application such as industrial plants, airports, meeting places or warehouses, fire protection closures are a decisive protective measure.

In accordance with the provisions of the approval, fire protection closures installed ready for operation in the course of rail-bound conveyor systems must be subjected to expert testing. The Technical Inspection Services are approved by the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) as an inspection body for the installation of fire protection closures.

VdS experts inspect on site not only the compliance with the approval but also the trouble-free operation and perfect functioning of the system.
