Vertical Kent Defender Fire Curtain

Defender K Fire Curtains are life safety systems that are designed to arrest the spread of fire in a building. The assembly comprises a fire resistant fiberglass fabric wound over a roller and all encased in a compact head box that is typically installed above the ceiling to be virtually invisible until activated.

When 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 (floor level) and thus forms a physical barrier for fire compartmentalization. Using the Defender K Gravity Fail Safe System, our fire curtains descend without the need for power and are fail to safe systems. These fire curtains have enabled large open building designs where otherwise permanent fire rated partitions would be required.
