Available from Colt International , FM1 electrically operated fire curtains will seal off an area that is affected by fire, helping to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading.

Suitable for installation in a range of commercial and industrial buildings, FM1 electrically operated fire curtains are unobtrusive and can be moved into position only when needed.

FM1 fire curtains conform to EN 1634-1 and offer protection for either 60 or 120 minutes in accordance with EN 13501-2:2007.

Supplied in modular form and simple to install, these fire curtains are available as a single unit or as either a double horizontal or a double vertical unit with overlapped fabric to form a continuous barrier.

Single are supplied with curtain lengths measuring 1000mm to 5000mm, and drops are available from 500 mm to 5000mm. For applications that require above this maximum length either double horizontal or double vertical units can be installed.

The fire curtain falls under gravity in a controlled manner to a predetermined level. This is triggered by a signal or on loss of power. A certified metal side guide rod system provides a seal between the curtain fabric and the building, ensuring resistance to the positive or negative pressures created by a fire.

A closure arrangement on the bottom bar ensures a tight seal, even with uneven floors, and expansion joints are incorporated to permit thermal movement.

FM1 fire curtains can operate as part of a smoke control and fire management system with emergency power units and the ability to interface directly with a fire control panel.

A pre-order design service is also available, and for more information on application, specification, installation or servicing please contact Colt International.
