Fire / Smoke Retardant Curtains Derby

Fire / Smoke Retardant Curtains form part of vital fire safety procedures for Derby businesses.

They help restrict the lateral spread of potentially lethal smoke and gas along the underside of an internal ceiling in the event of fire.

Fire / Smoke Retardant Curtains are proven to be effective as part of a smoke control fire safety system.

Smoke reservoirs can be created from which smoke and hot gases can be extracted, or Fire Retardant Curtains may alternatively be implemented in your Derby business to prevent the spread of smoke allowing time for escape.
