Smoke Curtain Operation
Smoke curtains are electrically operated by 240V Tubular Motors and are supplied with a control panel that is connected to the main fire alarm panel for the area. The standard control panel will operate a single motor or alternatively a group panel can be supplied to manage multiple motors within a single smoke compartment.
The system requires a 240V single phase fused spur within one meter of the control panel.
In the event of power failure, the curtains will automatically close by gravity with a controlled descent. Additionally, on receipt of a signal from the fire alarm panel, the curtains will failsafe close by gravity and open automatically when the fire signal ceases.
