U.S. Smoke and Fire › Fire Protective Smoke Curtains
Our Smoke Curtain Models & Options
Smoke will seek the most rapid route of escape. In doing so, smoke can travel faster than a person can run. Our smoke curtains work with smoke extraction systems to provide a smoke escape mechanism. Curtains also retain the smoke at ceiling level and allow people to safely exit the premises.
The Key Features:
- Deploy on Fire Alarm: Upon receipt of a fire signal the curtain will deploy, and our systems are designed to be integrated with your present fire alarm system.
- Fail Safe Deployment: Many fires may result in the failure of electronic systems. In the event that the main power or backup generator fails, the smoke curtains will operate independently and deploy as directed by the alarm system. Should the alarm panel be compromised, the fail-safe design will still deploy the curtains.
- Light, but Strong as Metal Fabric: The curtain fabric is fabricated in a proprietary manner to optimize performance and provide for an even surface and tight interlacing of the fabric edges. The tensile strength is ten times greater than other fabrics due to the constant thread tension.
- Route to Reservoir for Easy Extraction: The curtains form smoke reservoirs that contain the smoke and route it to the extraction systems.
