Control the spread of fire in a building with the highest quality fire curtains in Australia. At Australian Fire Control, we supply a range of different fire curtains suitable for both large and small openings and fully tested/accessed to meet Australian Standards.
Vertical Fire Curtains
Ideal for large open building designs, Vertical Kent Defender Fire Curtains are effective solutions for stopping or resisting the spread of fire. These curtains consist of a fire resistant fiberglass fabric which is wound over a roller and encased in a compact head box that is typically installed above the ceiling.
In the case of a fire, the vertical fire curtain may be activated by either a general fire alarm or a local detector. The fire curtain descends from its holding position within the head box to its operational position at floor level and thus forms a physical barrier to stop the spread of fire. The Defender Fire Gravity Fail Safe System enables the fire curtain to descend without the need of electricity.
Accordion Fire Curtains
The Accordion Kent Defender Fire Curtains are advanced safety systems that do not require a column support, unlike traditional vertical fire curtains. Relying on innovative construction methods, the Defender Fire Curtain creates a barrier to the spread of fire.
Stored in its retracted position within the compact head-box, the curtain is virtually invisible. Upon receiving a signal from a fire alarm, the curtain descends at a steady rate and provides powerful fire resistance for up to 180 minutes.
Horizontal Fire Curtains
For applications where horizontal curtains are required, Horizontal Kent Defender Fire Curtains provide an excellent fire barrier. These curtains are lightweight and compact, made from a woven fiberglass wire reinforced fabric with individual panels stitched and hemmed using stainless steel thread.
Upon a signal from the local smoke detection system, fire alarm or a smoke control panel system, the curtains are deployed via a 230V AC tubular motor. In the case of power failure, the curtain is provided with backup options. During Deployment, slim steel side guides prevent derailment of the fabric to ensure the system remains effective when faced by pressures of fire.
Boundary Fire Curtains
The Boundary Kent Defender Fire Curtain is a fusible-link fire curtain that require no electrics to operate. Designed to suit smaller openings of up to 2.75m width by 2.5m height, these curtains have an ultra slim and unobtrusive design. They can be easily retrofitted over existing windows if required.
