In the event of a fire, fire curtains are used to create a fire compartment preventing the fire and smoke from spreading throughout a building. This is an effective form of passive fire protection which neutralizes the possibility of uncontrollable flames. However due to the effectiveness of these fire compartments, building occupants and first respondents may have trouble determining where the fire is being held.

The ResQ-Window™ is a patented translucent fire proof flexible material that can be installed into a fire curtain allowing building occupants and first responders to see through the curtain after it has been deployed. This allows for building occupants to be aware of where the fire is located allowing them to escape in a safe manner. It also allows first respondents to easily locate the source of the flame and eliminate the danger in a more effective process.

Fire Rating

ResQ-Window™ can withstand temperatures in excess of 1000oC with 2 hours integrity (E120) and compliant to BS 8524-1. The curtain with a vision panel is designed for:

  • Escape routes incorporating doorways and corridors
  • Lift openings and lobbies
  • Areas where Fire Marshals and the Fire and Rescue Service may need to assess prior to entry

BS 9999 and Approved Document B both reference the requirement and benefits of vision panels used in fire safety in occupied buildings.

The ResQ-Window™ can be positioned to allow a low and high level view through the curtain if required.

Fabric

The material used in the window is made from specialized high purity silica fabrics, extremely high purity silicone optical resins, and nano-particle silica opacifiers. These more sustainable materials provide non toxic gasses or surface flaming when exposed to fire.

Benefits

  • First responder can see the presence of an occupant on the other side of a curtain
