Discreet fire protection
The FC120 is an electrically operated automatic vertical fire barrier, consisting of a stainless steel wire reinforced glass fabric curtain and galvanised steel box assembly and guide rails. The box, guide rails and bottom rail can be powder coated as an optional extra.
The curtain is powered by a 24v DC motor which includes gravity fail safe as standard.
This curtain is designed to remain open during normal use and only to be closed during a test or an emergency situation. In the event of receiving a fire alarm signal or a power failure the barrier will perform a controlled descent to create a fire resistant barrier.
From the above data it can be calculated using a formula from the SFPE Handbook, section 2, that it would be possible for building occupants to safely pass a 6.0m wide Guardian fire curtain at a distance of 1.0m after a period of 60 minutes.
This product is capable of providing 120 minutes integrity performance if subjected to a fire resistance test in accordance with the standards mentioned above.
