Fire Protective Curtain FA

The FA Curtain is an automatic, fire protective barrier that prevents fire and smoke from transferring from one part of a building to another. The Fire Protective Curtain is a vertical deploying opening protective, ideal to replace fire doors and protect atriums and lobbies. 


This vertically deploying opening protective is available with 1-hour and 3-hour fire protective ratings and carries UL 10D for up to 3 hours.

It can be installed above the ceiling and remain hidden until it’s needed. In the event of a fire, the fire curtain automatically deploys when interfaced with the building fire alarm system. Local smoke detectors or loss of power will also trigger the fire curtain (Gravity Fail Safe System)

Head box and fabric

The system incorporates a glass fiber fabric wound around a steel roller that incorporates a 24V permanent magnet roller. The roller assembly is encased in a galvanized steel head box, which can be fixed directly to the building’s structure. The fabric is silver grey and can be printed with custom signage per customer request.

Bottom bar

A standard bottom bar is attached to the bottom of the curtain and serves to ensure that the curtain deploys under gravity in a controlled manner (Gravity Fail-Safe).

Side guides

The side guides provide a seal between the sides of the curtain fabric and the walls, ensuring that any positive or negative pressures created by a fire will be resisted by the curtain.
