Smoke and Fire Curtains
Smoke can prevents building occupants from escaping and makes it difficult for the firefighters to determine the source of a fire. Colt smoke containment systems prevent the movement of smoke and heat by creating a physical barrier to allow for safe building evacuation, aid fire-fighting efforts, and to minimize damage caused by smoke and heat.
Fixed Smoke Curtains
Fixed smoke curtains consist of a special fabric material that is held and clamped by a series of angle pieces. The bottom of the curtain is weighted to ensure that the cloth remains taut and to reduce the amount of deflection caused by air currents.
Automatic Smoke and Fire Curtains
Automatic smoke curtains are used where fixed smoke curtains are either impractical or aesthetically unacceptable. Products are equipped with an electric motor that holds the retracted curtain at ceiling level and unrolls the fabric automatically upon a signal from a fire detection system. Automatic curtains are also available with a fire rated fabric material.
