The Alpine Smoke Fire-Shut® smoke shutter has all the features of the Fire-Shut® with the addition of an “S” rating for smoke leakage. The Smoke Fire-Shut® smoke rated shutters utilize a vinyl smoke seal on the bottom bar, brush seals on the guides and lintel to stop the movement of smoke through the door. This enables smoke containment and prevents property damage and health risks.

Alpine’s Smoke Fire-Shut® smoke sealed shutters are engineered and constructed to combine fire protection and service. These shutters are designed for small pass-through openings such as service counters, windows, concession stands and cafeteria counters. The interlocking flat faced steel, stainless steel, or prime painted slats maintains the aesthetic harmony of any building decor. These smoke rated shutters are great in situations where smoke containment is necessary. Most importantly, Alpine counter shutters provide excellent protection against fire, theft and unauthorized entry.

Alpine Smoke Fire-Shut® curtains are available in 1-1/4″ flat interlocking slats. Smoke rated shutters can be manually or motor operated. Operators can be adapted to specific conditions. Locking units can be provided depending on the type of  shutter operation. Alpine’s Redi-Robot may be used on this shutter.
