Fire and smoke curtains are like invisible safety nets. They stay hidden until a fire starts. When that happens, they quickly roll down to form a strong barrier against fire and smoke.
Protection for Commercial and Industrial Spaces
Whether you own or manage a bustling office, a busy school, or a high-traffic mall, our fire and smoke curtains provide a crucial shield of protection.
For office buildings, these curtains offer protection against fire outbreaks, a risk heightened by the presence of numerous electronic devices and wiring systems. They can be strategically installed in corridors, stairwells, and around elevators, offering a barrier that can halt fire and smoke, giving occupants valuable time for evacuation.
In schools, installing our fire and smoke curtains can help isolate incidents and prevent a small fire from becoming a large-scale disaster. From classrooms to cafeterias and libraries, we ensure each curtain is designed to blend seamlessly into the space until they are needed.
As for open spaces like retail centers, controlling a fire outbreak can be particularly challenging. Our curtains can help compartmentalize a large area to hinder fire from spreading rapidly across stores and buy valuable time for shoppers and staff to escape.
No matter the size and scale of your commercial or industrial space, these state-of-the-art curtains can help protect people and minimize property damage by adding a solid layer of safety.
How Do Our Curtains Work?
When it comes to fire, every second counts. The minute a fire triggers the integrated alarm system, our fire curtains begin their work. Concealed sensors detect the rise in temperature and initiate an automatic response. The curtains – held at standby, neatly rolled and hidden in their housing – descend and create a solid barrier against the advancing threat.
These curtains are crafted from durable, fire-resistant fiberglass. Fiberglass is known for its excellent ability to withstand high temperatures, making it an ideal line of defense. Plus, it’s lightweight and flexible, allowing the fire curtain to be rolled up and stored out of sight when not in use.
But the protection doesn’t stop at the fiberglass. A specialized coating is applied to enhance fire resistance even further. This coating helps the curtain withstand the flames and intense heat that accompanies a fire. This heat can cause significant damage and cause fire to spread even without direct contact with the flames, but our curtain’s coating reduces this risk.
By forming a tough barrier, our fire-resistant curtains slow the spread of fire and confine it to one area. This buys precious time for the occupants to evacuate and for the emergency services to arrive and extinguish the fire.
Safety is a commitment we uphold in every curtain we create. At Industrial Door Solution, we meticulously design these fire curtains and smoke curtains to align with globally recognized standards like the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) and UL (Underwriters Laboratories) in the USA. These standards dictate strict guidelines on the material, design, and operational aspects of fire and smoke curtains, and our products surpass these requirements.
Longevity and reliability go hand-in-hand with our production ethos. We know you trust our vertical and horizontal curtains to protect your premises, and we don’t take that trust lightly. Every smoke curtain is subjected to rigorous testing to ensure it functions flawlessly over a long period, offering consistent protection and peace of mind.
Integration is another area where we shine. We understand that every commercial building is unique and equipped with its fire detection system. Our curtains are designed with a plug-and-play approach, i.e., they can be seamlessly integrated into your existing fire alarm and sensor systems. This ensures that the moment a fire is detected, our curtains are ready for action.
