SeceuroFire Flame Curtains

The most intelligent automatic fire curtain from SWS UK which offers the flexible solution for a safe exit route.

Invisible when not in use, 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. Flame Curtain is strong enough to contain a fire for up to 2 hours whilst 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 go under.


Installation

The Flame Curtain’s design allows both a face or reveal installation. The curtain must be fixed to appropriate fire protected masonry/concrete or steel supporting constructions that have a fire resistance of at least the period required.
