Fire curtain barriers have been protecting major commercial and public buildings for many years now. Indeed, many of the nation’s most iconic buildings, such as Buckingham Palace and the Royal Albert Hall, have fire barrier systems in place.

As the main objective of the fire curtain is to compartmentalise a blaze in a particular section of a building, it makes them ideal for public properties. Escape routes are protected, meaning that all of the people in the building have a safe form of egress from the property in times of emergency.

However, in recent times, a growing number of domestic new-builds are incorporating fire curtains into the overall design.
