Smoke Curtains is barriers placed as part of smoke management systems in a building to channelize the movement of smoke in a building towards extraction points.
Smoke management is a task full of challenges. Statistics show that there happens to be higher amounts of causalities due to chaos culminating from smoke arising from fire than the fire itself.
Smoke Curtains are Active fire solutions that prevent movement of smoke and heat from one smoke zone to another by means of channelizing or pushing smoke towards smoke extraction points employed in a building. These are barriers manufactured to provide zone separation in complex architectural buildings, thus operating to stop the spread of fire within a structure.
Smoke has a tendency to move upward when its hot and spread along zones creating chaos.
The smoke curtains create a block for the movement of smoke in the upper layers from one zone into another, thereby forcing the smoke to move into directions of the smoke ventilation systems placed in the building. Smoke has a tendency to move upward when its hot and spread along zones creating chaos, thus Kent smoke and Fire Curtains have dedicated resources to manufacture the Automatic Smoke Curtains with Advanced European Technology tested to quality standards laid by UL and British European Norms, tested and certified to create smoke stops, preventing movement of smoke and hot gasses and providing a means of escape.
