“Flame Curtain”

2 Hour Certified Fire Curtain.

2 Hour Certified Fire Curtain.

2 Hour Certified Fire Curtain.

 Intelligent automatic fire curtain from Shuttertechnik – The flexible solution for a safe exit route.

The Flame curtain is a large fabric curtain made of heavy-duty fibreglass designed to fit over passageways, doors and windows to prevent the spread of fire. They only operate in the event of a fire and can provide up to 2 hours of containment when deployed. As they are made of fabric they still provide a route of escape when necessary.

Invisible when not in use, the Flame Curtain is automatically activated in the event of a fire alarm or power failure. This ensures safety where it is needed without having to compromise on the aesthetics or design of a building.

The Flame Curtain, when lowered or deployed divides up large open spaces to slow down the spread of fire, allowing a safe exit. The Flame Curtain is strong enough to contain a fire for up to 2 hours whilst, unlike steel fire shutters, still allowing a route of escape should this be required. This is achieved by simply lifting the bottom rail to create a gap large enough to exit under.
