The fire and smoke curtain industry, as we know it today, was arguably conceived when Coopers, (originally established in 1874), were challenged by a pioneering architect to find a non-invasive method of safely controlling hot smoke in the mid-70’s.
Rising to the challenge, Coopers set about applying five generations of Coopers engineering knowledge to develop the first automatic smoke curtain. In order to meet the architect’s requirements, the business designed the first smoke curtain to deploy from a ceiling and was held in place by an electromagnetic brake until required. This system became known as the Coopers’ patented Gravity Fail Safe System (GFS) and has become the benchmark system used worldwide.
Since Coopers Fire was established in 1986, the business remained true to our origins in the blind and shutter industry and continued to work closely with leading architects’ to develop innovative, high performance methods of protecting buildings and their occupants from fire. In fact, Coopers Fire smoke curtains and fire barrier curtains are trusted to help some of the world’s most iconic buildings protect their occupants from fire whilst ensuring that modern open plan environments meet stringent fire regulations.
