Smoke Curtains Specialists

At K & D Systems, we are fully qualified and certified suppliers and manufacturers of smoke curtains, as well as many other fire protection products.

When people consider the main cause of fire-related deaths, they may assume it would be burning, however this is wrong. In fact, it’s smoke inhalation that will kill people first.

Our automatic smoke curtains are designed to hold back the smoke and allow people to escape to safety, offering them one hour protection. At K & D Systems, we also supply and manufacture highly protective custom fire curtains.

Smoke curtains offer a strengthened defence to your building against fire and smoke. Its smoke seal will prevent any smoke from seeping around the edges and causing damage to the people and property around.

All of our units are driven from battery or electric-operated motors, so they will even work during an event with loss of mains power. See our guide on how our high quality smoke curtains work.

How they operate

Each of our smoke curtains will close after initiation of two alarm inputs – your local fire alarm panel, your smoke detectors, or indeed any volt-free contact.

Once the alarm input is set, you can choose how your fire curtain will close from a number of options, including:

  • To close as soon as any local warning systems are set off
  • To wait for a given time period before closing
  • To partially close and then wait a given period of time before closing completely

Another alarm output available is the incorporation of other local alarm equipment, such as voice warning systems, flashing beacons, and sirens.

K & D Fire & Smoke Systems Ltd. Introduce our new range of Smoke and Fire Curtain Systems.

Fail Safe Smoke Curtains

Our Pro Gravity fail safe Curtain ranges sets standards in the industry and offers unprecedented protection against Smoke and Fire. Smoke is a more likely killer than fire and superheated smoke spreads rapidly and silently with little warning to the inhabitants of a building. Through thorough planning and specification of the K & D smoke and Fire curtain, the effects of rapid smoke deployment through a building can be prevented and lives can be saved whilst protecting property at the same time.

The K & D range is tested and certified to BS476 part 22 for fire shutter 3-hour performance and BS7346 Part 3 for smoke containment.

The K & D electronic control panels can be fitted with wireless/mobile telemetry to notify local authorities/fire services and property management companies simultaneously and immediately when activation has occurred. The actual size of the electronic panel and battery back up is substantially smaller than traditional control panels and therefore easier to locate close to the installed Smoke or Fire curtain.

The K & D electronic control panels come with the following as standard:

  1. Delay before descent up to 15 minutes
  2. Split drop delay up 15 minutes
  3. Audio/Visual warning
  4. Second knock fire alarm activation
  5. Connection to building control system
  6. 96 Hour battery back up
  7. Automatic reset after alarm activation
  8. Emergency retract switch
