FC240 AUTOMATIC FIRE CURTAINS
Fire curtains activate in the event of a fire, providing a fire resistant barrier protecting and isolating an area of a building from fire damage. BLE Fire Curtains have been tested to BS 476: part 22 and achieved a 4-½ hour rating. All BLE fire curtain systems are manufactured and installed in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001 certification.
As the name suggests, this is an electrically operated automatic fire curtain, for use as part of an integrated fire control system. It is essentially a roller blind incorporating fire resistant fabric normally held retracted at ceiling level. Individual curtains can be installed adjacent to one another to give a continuous bank of curtains.
In the event of a fire a signal allows the curtain to unroll down the side guides fixed to the wall at a controlled rate until it meets the floor. The curtains are totally gravity fail safe. When retracting a current limiting system determines when the curtain has reached its fully retracted position and holds the curtain in that position awaiting its next alarm signal. A 3-hour Battery backup caters for short power outages.
The curtain can withstand temperatures of 1000°C for 270 minutes due to the wire reinforced polymer coated glass cloth fabric.
The BLE Fire Curtains are ideal for commercial buildings such as shopping centres, schools, and offices.
