Fire Curtains are designed to stop the spread of fire for up to 2 hours. They are common on Reception Counters, Kitchen Serveries, Stores, Lifts and open plan residential applications. The advantage of a Fire Curtain is that it has a Fabric Kevlar curtain, which means it coils into a smaller box, compared with a Fire Shutter. This is ideal when you are limited on headroom. A fire curtain is designed to be in the up position at all times and it will only close in a fire situation. The shutters have been independently tested and certified by Exova to Fire Standards BS476 and BS EN 1634.
The Fire Curtains are only available with a Single Phase Tube Motor. The fire curtain is supplied as standard with a control panel which includes the Fire Alarm Relay, Staged Decent and Battery Backup. A switch can be fitted to the fire curtain to reset it after a fire activation. There is also the option of an emergency release button, in case someone gets trapped behind a closed fire curtain.
The Fire Curtain comes as standard in a Grey Kevlar finish. The Box and Guides are Powder Coated White as standard. The Box and Guides can be Powder Coated any BS or RAL colour to match your colour scheme.
