Secure environments such as banks provide a unique problem when it comes to fire and smoke protection. On the one hand, they contain a large number of valuables that need to be protected in the event of a fire. On the other hand, they also need physical security to protect those valuables from burglary and maintain a record of those coming in and out.
Fire and smoke-rated curtains can help separate fire and provide smoke control without impeding the other security measures such as safes or keycard entry doors. Smoke curtains can be installed in the ceiling above a door jamb and stowed out of sight when on in use. They are linked to the main fire alarm system and deployed at the sign of smoke.
Smoke curtains will not impede the integrity of physical security measures while still providing an extra layer of smoke and fire protection.
