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. 
  • Domestic properties
  • Hotels
  • Anywhere where a regular shutter would be unsightly
  • Any location where smoke resistance is key
  • Visually unobtrusive
  • Protect against fire and smoke
  • Extends building evacuation time
  • Can reduce loss of life and property damage by giving emergency services time to respond

Curtain
