Brakel Airvent’s Smoke-Guard is an innovative smoke and heat-resistant curtain which can be applied either fixed in place or deployed automatically within seconds in a fire emergency. Smoke-Guard compartmentalises hot smoke above head height to delay it from cooling and lowering to ground level, obscuring fire escape routes and causing a hazard to health. The robust, lightweight Smoke-Guard has applications in smoke containment, smoke channelling and smoke sealing, and is rated to 120 minutes at 600°C (both enclosure and fabric).
The fabric is manufactured from X32K woven glass fibre cloth, incorporating ‘Panama’ weave for increased stability, enabling Smoke-Guard to form a continuous barrier against the smoke produced in a fire.
Brakel Airvent has recently installed Smoke-Guard at Lewisham Shopping Centre, Asda at Tory Glen, Bon Accord Shopping Centre, Watford’s Harlequin Shopping Centre, Guildford’s Friary Shopping Centre, Thurrock’s Lakeside Shopping Centre and Bromley’s The Glades Shopping Centre.
