FireMaster Roller (Virtual) Fire Door is a highly efficient fire barrier, designed to replace traditional cumbersome hinged fire doors. With full 2 hour integrity, this fire-engineered unit complies with Approved Document 'M' and allows completely clear and unobstructed passageways throughout a building - perfect for easy wheelchair access (N.B. Disabled Discrimination Act).
The barrier remains fully retracted and out-of-sight, operating only in the event of fire or alarm signal.
The revolutionary off-the-shelf, lightweight design eliminates the problems of heavy and ugly steel shutters. It is easy to install and needs no special steelwork structure.
A revolution in active fire separation, the FireMaster fire curtain is a clever alternative to fire doors that are often wedged open contravening fire regulations.
The 'Gravity Failsafe' drive system ensures a safe, controlled descent under gravity - even in the event of total power failure.
The barrier enables easy escape for occupants and entry for emergency services through and under the curtain, by a combination of safety features such as emergency retract, movement sensors, induction loop mats, firemans override etc.
2 hour integrity fire resistance performance
Tested for fire resistance from either or both directions.
Eliminates the dangers posed by heavy fire doors.
The Fire curtain fabric complies with all the requirements of BS 476 Part 22 1987. It meets the Class 0 requirements of England and Wales Building Regulations 1991, the requirement for Fire Propagation of BS476 Part 6 1989 and has Nil Spread of Flame, achieving Class 1 according to BS476 Part 7 1987.
The EFP 2/1000 is a composite material of stainless steel mesh and woven glass fibre, coated in a specially developed reflective aluminium enriched polymer. Tested in accordance with BS 476 Parts 6,7 & 22.
A square section bottom rail is attached to the curtain to assist downward movement. To maintain a flush ceiling line when in the raised position, the fire curtain's bottom bar creates a slimline soffit.
The fire curtain fabric winds onto a tubular 70mm barrel of mild steel tube of sufficient diameter and wall thickness to resist deflection - mounted on endplate bearings.
Casings are manufactured from galvanised steel to suit a range of standard sizes. The barrel and curtain assembly is housed within the casing, and is a face fixed structure.
Side guides are required to provide a fire proof seal between the curtain fabric and the structure of the building. These guides are made from galvanised steel - 100mm deep x 33mm wide, which are fixed to the opening structure by non-visible bolts. Positive or negative pressure can be caused by a fire, which can result in the curtain bulging and pulling the fabric out of the side guides. To prevent this, tabs are attached to the outer edges of the fire curtain.
Guides, bottom rail and casings are supplied in a standard finish of galvanised steel, but are also available polyester powder coated in a range of standard RAL colours at additional cost.
In accordance with BS 476 Parts 6,7 & 22.
