Thermal sensitivity of fusible links for controlling fire shutters in big hotel projects will be studied. A sample of 150 fusible links were tested in a hot air wind tunnel with procedure following international testing standards. The fusible link samples were loaded under 0.4 kgf. The working section of the tunnel was set at air temperature of 135°C and air speed of 2.54 ms-1. Response time index was deduced. This parameter is proposed to be included in the local codes for assessing thermal sensitivity of fusible links.
