Fire Resistant or Fire Rated Shutters are used in homes and businesses alike. They are usually required to meet provincial or Ontario Building Code in order to pass an inspection. The common scenario where a fire shutter is required is when a new build or renovation has windows close to the neighbors property in order to limit the spread of any fire from one building to the next.
