Fireproof Shutters and Fireproof Doors

Preventing smoke and flames from spreading is crucial when a fire breaks out in places where people congregate such as office buildings, department stores, schools and hospitals. Our fireproof shutters, fireproof doors and other fireproofing equipment are linked to smoke and heat sensors, and automatically close when a fire is detected in the building, delaying the spread of the fire for a certain period of time. These are the Sanwa Group’s core products that protect people’s lives and property in a fire and provide safe places.
