The FireMaster® S Active Fire Barrier is an automatic fire curtain which comprises of technologically advanced fire-resistant fabric roller barriers encased in a compact steel housing.
The unique construction housing and additional tested smoke seals provide a smoke tight solution fully tested to AS1530.7(2007). Curtains remain invisibly retracted until activated by an alarm or detector signal, at which time they descend safely to their operational position.
Only single roller construction. Each roller is up to 30 metres wide and has a minimum of 70mm diameter with a wall thickness of not less than 1.5mm. Rollers wider than 5 meters are wide single rollers incorporating IRSB headboxing.
Metalwork is zinc coated mild steel. This can be painted on site or powder coated to DULUX or RAL colours.
FireMaster® S will remain retracted within its headbox until it is automatically activated by the fire alarm signal. Once activated it will completely close the opening, creating a fire and smoke compartment.
