The most common cases when fire shutters are required is when a new home is built too close to the property line or if the exterior wall has a high percentage of window coverage. We have completed fire shutter installations for both new construction and home renovation projects.

With every fire shutter supplied and installed by Candoor Overhead Doors, you will be given an official sign off sheet which validates the installation has been completed as per the manufacturer’s specification, the Ontario building code and the Ontario fire code NFPA.

Fire shutters can be mounted on the interior or exterior of any structure providing all manufactures specifications and fire code guidelines are followed.  Fire shutters supplied by Candoor Overhead Doors are customizable to your colour choice and are available in manual operation with mechanical fusible link dropping system as well as motorized options.

Manufactures requirements to install a fire shutter are:

  • exterior-mounted fire shutters require a steel or masonry jamb construction
  • interior mount fire shutters can be fastened to wood or steel stud but require 2 layers of 5/8'' drywall
  • all fire shutters must have a non- combustible sill to seal on
  • for all exterior-mounted fire shutters, a "runway” must be created to install the fusible link on the interior of the home
