Discreet Fire Curtains

Standard fire doors are an integral part of any buildings strategy to contain the spread of fire and smoke. They are, however, often badly managed i.e. wedged open and poorly maintained. Similarly they are constantly requiring replacement due to damage by trolleys, equipment and so on.

An Elite ‘discreet’ fire curtain stays retracted in the ceiling until required to deploy thus giving free movement through corridors. On deployment it can be given a raft of control measures to enable assisted retraction to ensure clear escape routes whilst not compromising the building fire strategy. It is a fact that a Elite Hidden Fabric Fire Door meets and in some cases exceeds the standards required of a normal fire door.
