COOPERS FIRE CURTAIN AND SMOKE BARRIER LATEST INSTALLATIONS 2000 - 2015

POSTED BY 06.07.2015,

 

Since the beginning of this century, Coopers Fire have installed fire curtains and smoke barriers in a number of prestigious buildings around the world.

Below is a list of some significant and prominent projects Coopers Fire have installed either fire curtains or smoke curtain barriers to help protect the occupants from the harmful effects of smoke and fire.

 

Coopers are proud of the projects we have worked on and were chosen to install in these prestigious projects as we are recognised as the modern alternative to firewalls, fire doors and glazing. Fire and smoke curtains give designers the freedom to design modern, open plan spaces without compromising fire safety.
