Fire & Smoke Curtains
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.
Ideal for large open building designs, Vertical 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 Gravity Fail Safe System enables the fire curtain to descend without the need of electricity.
The Accordion 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.
For applications where horizontal curtains are required, Horizontal 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.
The Boundary 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.
Defender Smoke Curtains assist the management of smoke in a building, channelising the movement of smoke to smoke extraction points in the building or creating reservoirs to slow down the spreading of smoke.
The curtains remain virtually invisible in their retracted position within the compact head-box.
When signaled by a local detector or fire alarm system, the curtain descends to the operational level using the gravity fail safe system
