Fiberseal automatic smoke containment screens are the first smoke curtain product to provide proven smoke leakage performance. Conventional smoke curtains will typically allow the passage of large volumes of smoke around their perimeter and through the head box, even those with side guides. Only Fiberseal contains an innovative patented and proven sealing system combined with a specially coated screen capable of significantly reducing the amount of smoke penetrating the protected perimeter.
Where combined fire and smoke performance is needed the Fiberseal FS system should be specified. The Fiberseal system has been tested in accordance with both AS/NZS1530.7 for smoke leakage and tested as a smoke curtain in accordance with BS7346.3. This system has also been fire tested in accordance with AS1530.4 to provide a fire resistance level of up to 2 hours.
Fiberseal automatic smoke containment screens consist of a compact header box and flexible screen connected to a control system. The compact header box dimensions mean this system can be easily integrated into existing buildings. Complementing the unique header box smoke sealing system and bottom smoke gasket is a patented labyrinth sealing system incorporated into the side guides. Fiberseal contains a unique tensioning system to prevent potential binding of the curtain inside the header box, thus significantly reducing the potential for motor burnout and increasing the reliability of the system.
Designed to protect openings in smoke walls from 3m to 7m wide the specially reinforced and coated glass fibre fabric screen offers superior radiation shielding properties.
The system is designed to activate on receipt of an alarm signal from the master fire control panel or our stand alone control system that allows up to 40 smoke detectors to be connected. As with all of our curtain and screen systems deployment is by gravity (gravity fail safe). The rate of descent is controlled mechanically to approximately 4.5m/min to significantly reduce the likelihood of injury to occupants that may be passing through. Fire and/or smoke curtain systems that do not have this gravity fail safe function do NOT comply with the Building Code of Australia requirements for fail safe in the event of power failure.
A 240 volt tubular motor which incorporates an electro-magnetic brake, adjustable mechanical upper and lower limits is used only to rewind the system on reset of an alarm or power. Each barrier can be individually operated from a low-level surface mounted key switch, push button or break glass mechanism.
Fiberseal’s performance is easily verified during annual inspection and maintenance.
