Fire Curtains

Rigorously Tested and Compliant Fire Protection Curtains

A fire curtain is a specialised fire protection device designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke within a building. Unlike traditional fire doors or barriers, a fire curtain is a flexible, vertically deploying curtain made of fire-resistant material. It is typically housed in a discreet enclosure and can be automatically or manually deployed in the event of a fire.

    Fire Curtains

    Fire compartmentation is a fundamental principle in fire safety and building design. It involves dividing a building into separate compartments or fire compartments to prevent the spread of fire, smoke, and hot gases from one part of the building to another. The purpose of compartmentation is to contain a fire within a limited area, limiting its impact and providing occupants with safe evacuation routes.

    Fire Curtains are used to form either compartments or protected routes and can be used as alternatives to traditional methods of construction such as non-loadbearing walls, ceilings, doorsets, or glazing systems. Fire Curtains may also be used in a fire strategy to provide flexible compartmentation.

    Material Composition

    The curtains are made from fire-resistant materials, often incorporating advanced technologies such as intumescent coatings or other fire-retardant substances. The materials are designed to withstand high temperatures and prevent the passage of flames and smoke.

    Automatic Activation

    Like smoke curtains, fire and smoke curtains are often integrated into a building’s fire detection and alarm system. They can be automatically deployed when a fire is detected, contributing to a swift and controlled response

    Enclosure and Housing

    The fire curtain is typically housed in a discreet enclosure or housing unit when not in use. This enclosure helps protect the curtain from environmental elements and ensures a neat and unobtrusive appearance.

    Vertical Deployment

    The curtain deploys vertically, creating a barrier to prevent the spread of flames and smoke. It descends from its housing to block openings such as doorways, windows, or other fire-rated openings.

    Flexible Design

    Fire curtains are flexible and can be customized to fit various architectural configurations. They can adapt to different building layouts and designs.

    Integration with Building Systems

    Fire and smoke curtains are often designed to work in conjunction with other building systems, including sprinklers, fire alarms, and emergency lighting. Integration ensures a comprehensive and coordinated fire protection strategy.

    Visibility and Evacuation

    By containing both fire and smoke, these curtains improve visibility for occupants during evacuation. Clear evacuation routes contribute to safer and more efficient evacuations.

    Testing and Certification

    Like other fire protection systems, active fire curtains should undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet safety standards. Our products have been tested and certified by relevant authorities.

    Maintenance Requirements

    Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the proper functioning of active fire curtains. This includes testing the deployment mechanism, inspecting the fabric for damage, and addressing any issues promptly.

    Deployment Mechanism

    Fire and smoke curtains are equipped with a deployment mechanism, which can be motorised or gravity-driven. The curtains deploy rapidly to create a barrier when needed.

    Building Regulations Compliance

    Compliance with local building codes and regulations is crucial when installing active fire curtains. Work with professionals who are knowledgeable about local fire safety requirements.
