FIRE-GUARD Fire-Guard

Brakel Airvent’s Fire-Guard is an innovative fire, smoke and heat-resistant curtain which can be applied either fixed in place or deployed automatically within seconds in a fire emergency. Fire-Guard blocks the spread of flames (much like a fire door), and also compartmentalises hot smoke above head height to delay it from cooling and lowering to ground level, obscuring fire escape route and causing a hazard to health. The robust, lightweight Fire-Guard has applications in smoke containment, smoke channelling and smoke sealing, and is rated to 60 minutes in a fire situation (both enclosure and fabric). The enclosure features side guide rails to ensure sealing of the edges.

Materials

The fabric is manufactured from X32K woven glass fibre cloth, incorporating ‘Panama’ weave for increased stability, enabling Fire-Guard to form a continuous barrier against the fire and smoke produced in a fire.

Projects

Brakel Airvent has recently installed Fire-Guard at AMEX – Brighton and also at the King’s Cross Redevelopment in London.
