Smoke Curtains

Kent Smoke Curtains tested in accordance to BS EN 12101-1:2006, Kent manufactures CE D120 labelled Smoke Curtains in its technologically advanced set up.



The majority of deaths in a fire scenario are caused not by flame burns, but by the inhalation of hot smoke and toxic gases. As a fire develops, smoke can quickly fill the building, creating a chaotic situation where people are incapacitated and unable to access exit points.

Kent Smoke Curtains are used to control the movement of smoke through a building in the event of a fire. They can either channel smoke to smoke extraction points or create reservoirs to slow its spread. They remain virtually invisble when the curtain is stored in its retracted position within the compact headbox. When signalled by a local detector device or a fire alarm signal, they descend to the operational level above the floor
