How Can Fire & Smoke Curtains Protect You?

It’s no exaggeration to say that fire and smoke curtains can be the difference between life and death. Accidental fires can strike at any time and without warning so the necessary steps should be taken to ensure that people and property are protected.

We take fire safety seriously and so should you. We supply and manufacture highly protective custom fire curtains and smoke curtains but how do they work? How can they protect you and your property?

We answer those questions here.

Minimise property damage

Fire and smoke curtains not only provide protection for people to escape during a fire, but will also minimise the damage to property, whether that’s offices, theatres, care homes, or restaurants.

Fire and smoke curtains create breaks within the interior of the property and work to contain the destruction to as few areas of the building as possible – giving the fire services longer to arrive and extinguish the blaze before it spreads.

The reinforced, steel-based fire and smoke curtains creates an unrivalled barrier against both smoke and flames working to slow the progress of a fire and lowering the cost of repairs.

Protected means of escape

As we said above, fire and smoke curtains create breaks in the interior of the property. By sectioning various areas, they provide escape options as well as protection from the heat and smoke throughout the evacuation process.

So, installing fire curtains and smoke curtains can extend the potential escape time significantly.

We can provide expert advice regarding the strategic placement of fire and smoke curtains in your property to ensure that they’ll provide optimum protection for those in the building.

Protection from harmful smoke and gases

Studies have shown that exposure to heavy smoke, even for a short period of time, can affect lung function. In the worst case scenarios, some 50–80% of fire deaths are the result of smoke inhalation injuries, 

Exposure to dense smoke causes irritation of the eyes, mouth and air passages because of its physical, chemical and thermal properties. The majority of symptoms disappear soon after the person is removed from the smoky environment but in some people with underlying health conditions, they can develop into long-term problems if exposure persists.

Smoke curtains provide protection from this harmful smoke so people can escape safely and get to a smoke-free area.
