Kaba installed the fire shutter to provide a fire break between the vehicle service bay and the main distribution area. The steel fire shutter provides 4 hours fire resistance and is fitted with the Kaba patented smoke check system to reduce smoke leakage. Constructed from steel the shutter has been connected in to the existing fire alarm system and will shut in the event of a fire; the robust design also providing excellent security.
Morag Turnbull, Royal Mail External Relations Manager said: “We are really pleased with the fire shutter that Kaba have installed into our premises at the Scottish Distribution Centre in Wishaw. Kaba have fulfilled our needs exactly and we were delighted with the service they provided”
