Specialty Cinema, part of the Specialty Group Pty Ltd announces that its STS300 Series of fire-rated projection ports and fire shutters was recently granted Product Listing Scheme (PLS) status for the Singapore market.  

The PLS status was granted following a rigorous inspection and certification process conducted by Exova Warringtonfire under the demanding Exova Certification and Inspection Services (ECI) scheme.  

Designed to rapidly close at the first sign of any fire, the key purpose of the fire-rated projection ports is to prevent flame and smoke from spreading in the event of a fire in the projection room.  

Often required by law to separate a cinema projection room or bio box from the public auditorium, STS300 Series fire-rated projection ports available from Specialty Cinema are used widely in the cinema industry in Australia, Asia and the Middle East.    

The shutters are closed either by a thermal fuse, which trips due to the heat from the fire or by a magnetic release mechanism controlled by the building’s central fire control and management system.  

The STS300 Series is currently certified under the following fire safety regimes:  

  • Australia: AS1530.4.2005 & AS1905.2.2005
  • Singapore PLS certification: SS489:2001
  • United Kingdom: BS476-22:198
