Fire Curtains

There is a difference between Fire Curtains & Fire Barriers in both application & product type. Fire curtains are mainly used in areas where it is either impractical or not feasible to install a traditional firewall either out of a drylining or brick or blockwork due to either a buildings fragile ceilings, above shop fronts and walkways that are unable to support excessive weights or major construction works. 

In these instances, the Fire Curtain is an ideal solution as it provides a light weight easy to install Firewall barrier which will prevent the spread of fire and smoke and maintain the buildings intended fire strategy compartmentation line. 

Fire Curtains

Fire Curtains are a fire compartmentation Barrier System which is essential to prevent the rapid spread of fire in concealed spaces within a building. Fire curtain systems have been specially developed to offer easy to install solutions which effectively prevent the spread of fire and smoke within unseen roof spaces and ceiling voids.

Buildings must follow national standards of compartmentation, where a building’s structure is divided by compartmentation Barriers. This keeps a fire in the area where it started for as long as possible to reduce the risk of fire, smoke, and gas spreading. Because such many buildings contain hidden cavities and voids within them; Void Cavity fire curtain Barriers are of the highest importance.

We supply, install and maintain both lightweight flexible fire curtains and insulating fire curtains to provide Fire curtains systems from 30 minutes up to 120 minutes fire protection in both occupied and void properties. This includes lofts, ceiling voids and risers.

Our roof void surveys will identify what is needed to ensure buildings meet regulations and that the fire compartment walls below continued with the compartmentation line above the ceiling and below the floor.

Fully accredited, we provide passive fire protection installation services throughout the United Kingdom to a wide range of clients, to ensure your buildings are safe, protected and you remain within fire regulations. (Approved Document B)
