Unlike fire shutters, fire and smoke curtains offer a much more unobtrusive way of protecting the premises against the spreading of fire if the user is not concerned with security as well.
Furthermore, because the curtain is made from Kevlar and stainless steel thread that has been stitched or hemmed together, the curtain has very little airflow meaning it is very effective at containing smoke.
Able to withstand raging fires for up to 120 minutes, this is the perfect product hotels, flats, airports or anywhere where the curtain will only be deployed in the event of a fire and where smoke is a major concern.
Fire curtains are formed from a fire rated fabric 0.65mm thick, stitched and hemmed (were required) using Kevlar and stainless steel thread, the unique two section bottom rail allows smooth operation of the curtain.
Manufactured from galvanised steel and shaped into a channel profile which is prepared for bolting to the structure by means of continuous fixing angles.
Fire curtain barrels are manufactured from mild steel tube, tube size dependant on the overall size of the unit and deflection calculated to conform to British Standards, the barrel is mounted on 20mm high speed bearings and is complete with an enclosed tubular motor either 240 volt AC or 24volt DC.
Gravity fail safe, operable if there is a power failure or if the wiring becomes corrupt.
Fire curtain guides are constructed from 2.5mm mild steel plate in 2 sections, the front section of the guide is removable and allows repairs to be effected without dismantling the door. The guides are slotted for expansion.
The fire curtain hood is formed from 1.2mm galvanised steel plate and is slotted for expansion.
The fire curtain end plates are formed from 2.5mm plate depth of the plate is dependant on the overall height of the unit, the endplate has a formed motor compartment which will be packed with non combustible material.
The fire curtain is standard grey, the endplates, guides, hood etc., are powder coated RAL 9010 white as standard, other colours are available at an additional cost.
Electrically operated 1PH 240 volt AC or 24 volt DC
