FireMaster Plus is an insulated fire curtain. The revolutionary FireMaster Plus fire curtain incorporates a unique intumescent fabric that was developed and produced by Coopers Fire. It uses a unique rapid reaction graphite flake which expands to over 20 times its original thickness on exposure to heat and fire, creating an insulating carbon barrier to heat.
FireMaster Plus reduces radiant heat to under 2.5 kilowatts per square meter for over 15 minutes. You can escape safely just a few inches away from a 600°C fire.
Fire Curtain Construction
Single roller construction only. Each roller is up to 30 meters wide and has a minimum of 70mm diameter with a wall thickness of not less than 1.5mm. Rollers wider than 4 meters are wide single rollers incorporating Wide Single Roller (WSR) head boxing.
Metalwork is zinc coated mild steel. This can be painted on site or powder coated to DULUX or RAL colours.
FireMaster Plus will remain retracted within its head box until it is automatically activated by the fire alarm signal. Once activated it will completely close the opening, creating a fire and smoke compartment. Deployment is by gravity at a controlled speed of 0.06 – 0.15m/s. The only true gravity failsafe product on the market.
Testing is performed by a simple key switch. It is reset manually by pressing a reset button on the control panel. Automatic reset is available.
Full scale and full assembly fire testing to AS1530.4 providing fire integrity of 2 hours with low radiant heat. Insulation was achieved for 2 hours when measured 50mm from the curtain. Testing also includes motor testing and proving 12 operating cycles across 30 minutes fire exposure. No need to fire protect the headbox or side guides as the complete product is fire rated. Assessment report EXOVA EWFA-RIR-22049.
