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 Fire 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.
London, UK | 2011
The Shard is one of the most iconic tall buildings in London’s skyline and Coopers Fire are proud to have a range of fire curtains installed on different floors throughout the building.
