English translation:Close steel doors that have not been triggered by the alarm
Explanation:
Close steel doors that have not been triggered by alarm

This seems like emergency instructions for fire or water retaining doors you would find on a ship or industrial plant.

Explanation:
'Steel doors, if not actuated remotely, will close.'

That's the best I can come up with on short notice and without more context.

Close steel doors if not realeased/closed automatically by alarm...


Explanation:
Here is the scenario the way I see it. Some doors are released by the firealarm or fire reporting stations. Other have to be closed manually. It is not clear from your fragment wether this is a command to do something or statement of what will happen.
