About Smoke Curtains
A smoke curtain is a part of the fire and safety devices that are used to prevent the spread of smoke in the event of a fire. A smoke curtain is activated automatically when smoke is detected through a fire and smoke detection system. It is strategically placed to cut off the spread of smoke from one portion of the building to another. Smoke curtains are suitable for use in different places from commercial buildings and airports and shopping centers to construction sites, factories museums and hotels.
The use of smoke curtains provides increased safety in the event of a fire because it not only prevents smoke from spreading but is also resistant to fire. A smoke curtain can resist fires for upto 2 hours which gives fire fighters ample time to put out the fire and occupants of a building enough time to escape. Smoke curtains can be fitted in a box that lies above doors and hatches and will not have an impact on the aesthetics of the building.
