Why to use a Fire Curtain or Fire Proof Barrier?

Fire Curtains minimize the extent of fire & slow the development of fire, act as a barrier to slow the fire & smoke from spreading to other parts of the manufacturing plant/office and help protect escape routes in a building from being engulfed in fire & smoke. Fire Curtains help minimize inventory & machinery damage due to spread of fire and give precious time for people to escape in case of a fire.


Fire curtain material needs to be resistant to fire for a period ranging between 30-120 minutes, must be light weight & flexible. Fire curtain material must be high temperature resistant so as to not melt in case of a fire and hence a Fibreglass base fabric coated with Polyurethane (PU) or coated with Silicone is used for these fire proof barriers.
