FireGard™ Chain and Crank Operators

Fire Operator

The FireGard™ manual operators are available in a chain or removable hand crank version and include a geared reduction unit and an electric wall mounted close control station.

This manual closing device activates the door when the fusible link melts due to heat or fire, allowing the door or shutter to act as a barrier to prevent the spread of smoke or fire through out the remainder of the building.

Once activated, the door will operate at a safe maximum speed of 12" per second ensuring the safety of those around the door.  

As with any FireGard closing system, it can easily be reset by replacing and resetting the fusible link.   

The FireGard manual operators can be used on fire doors and fire counter shutters that do not require the convenience of motor operation. The maximum size is 34' wide or 28' high - cranks can only be used for doors that are less than 12' high.
