FireMaster is an uninsulated active fire curtain barrier that vertically protects openings in fire rated walls or can be used to completely replace non-load bearing fire rated walls. To protect means of escape or where there are combustibles in close proximity see FireMaster Plus.
FireMaster Fire Curtains are designed as barriers to prevent the spread of fire in accordance with AS1530.4.
