Fire Curtain Assemblies in Hospitals

For most buildings, fire doors are typically located around stairwells and elevator shafts as to limit the ability for smoke to leak from floor to floor. However, fire and smoke containment systems can be a little more complex for buildings in the healthcare industry such as hospitals.

Hospitals have distinct requirements such as secure access points, the ability to move gurneys through doors, and the capability to isolate areas with infectious diseases and research labs. Because of these unique needs, traditional fire doors are not always the best option. Fortunately, flexible fire curtains can maintain the flow of traffic during emergency situations while still prioritizing safety.

Flexible fire curtains offer several advantages for hospitals, including:

  • Enhanced safety - fire curtains cannot be held open with furniture or door stops, unlike traditional fire doors.
  • Improved traffic flow - fire curtains are installed into wall or ceiling cavities, keeping hallways clear and open for crucial moments.
  • Complementary to complete fire management - deployable fire curtains serve as an excellent addition to a comprehensive fire management system that includes exhaust fans and/or sprinklers.
