Why You Need A Service Agreement

Your fire and smoke curtains are part of the building’s life support system; we’ll make sure that they continue to protect your building and its occupants from fire and smoke.

No matter the type of building or the make and model of the fire curtain or smoke curtain, a Coopers Fire service agreement provides peace of mind as you can be assured of the performance of your system at all times and can avoid any unexpected and costly repairs.

FireMaster® Fire Curtains with Smoke Control

Lifts and Lift Lobbies


Forbury Place is a new £38 million set of office buildings in Reading constructed by Galliford Try for the client MG Real Estate and Bell Hammer.   Phase 1 was the construction of 1 Forbury Place which was completed in the early part of 2016. This building consists of 185,000 sq ft of category A office space comprising of a ground and seven upper floors and a basement car park.



2 and 3 Forbury Place make up phases 2 and 3 consecutively of the development, resulting in 370,000 sq ft of office space by 2018.


Coopers Fire have worked with Galliford Try on numerous build projects and worked closely with them to ensure the fire curtains met the fire requirements and the building layout as designed by the architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

There are six lifts available on ground floor to floor six and four lifts continue to the seventh floor. Fire curtains with smoke control were required over the individual lift openings.


Fire curtains with smoke control over a lift opening offer fire integrity and prevent smoke from spreading through the building via the lift shaft in the event of a fire on any of the building’s floors.


Coopers installed FireMaster fire curtains over the lift door openings on each of the ground and upper seven floors and two on the basement so a total of forty eight curtains.



An important part of the design of the building on the ground and first floor was to subtly integrate the fire curtain headbox and side guides into the lift opening. Bronze and stainless steel trim is a major feature in the lift lobby on the ground and first floors and Coopers were able to install matching stainless steel bottom tray and side guide trims to ensure the fire curtain is virtually invisible until deployed.


As a manufacturer and installer that is fully project managed meant Coopers were able to ensure the final, fitted product satisfied the high quality finish required and integrated with the lift opening as per the design requirements. Coopers are Independently Third Party Certified for Product Testing and Installation.


Coopers fire curtains are recognised as the modern alternative to firewalls, fire doors and glazing, giving designers the freedom to design modern, open plan spaces without compromising fire safety. They are increasingly specified by designers as a solution for open plan designs.



Coopers Fire is a turnkey business, offering the customer a product and service with full provenance. Coopers Fire designs, manufactures, tests, installs and maintains all its fire curtains from our business premises in Havant, Hampshire.
