A smoke curtain prevents the movement of smoke and heat generated by a fire from one area to another by channeling or containing the smoke and heat.
The smoke curtain has fixing options to suit all types of ceiling configurations and can be integrated into either a suspended or a solid ceiling. It remains hidden until required.
The smoke curtain comprises a flexible heat resistant fabric that is impervious to smoke and hot gases, wound around a circular tube. Upon receiving a signal from the fire detection or on loss of power the curtain automatically unwinds to its operational position.
Smokemaster SM5 smoke curtains are well suited to most industrial and commercial buildings as they are unobtrusive, moving to their active position only when needed (Colt International Licensing Limited, 2019).
Certified to EN 12101-1 for preventing the movement of smoke and heat from one area to another in a fire.
A fire curtain is used where, if there is a fire, it is necessary to create a temporary barrier within an opening that seals off the area on fire. The curtain descends and prevents any fire and smoke from spreading from one area to another. It also allows people access to protected escape routes without any loss of fire resistance.
A FM-1 fire curtain comprises a flexible fire-resistant fabric that is wound around a circular tube. Upon receiving a signal from the fire alarm system or on loss of power the curtain automatically unwinds to its operational position.
FM-1 fire curtains have been tested as fire barriers in accordance with EN 1634-1, providing protection for a defined period and at a defined maximum temperature (Colt International Licensing Limited, 2019).
