A fire curtain, on the other hand, may well be exposed to the fire itself and fire temperatures can be a lot higher. So, the fire curtain is fire rated against the normal ISO fire curve, which exceeds 1000oC, so it is a much higher rating and the curtain needs to be more robust in order to achieve that.
