FireMaster® A1 ResQ-Window
Application

  • Escape routes incorporating doorways and corridors.
  • Lift openings and lobbies.
  • Areas where Fire Marshals and the Fire and Rescue Service may need to assess prior to entry.

Description

An electrically operated FireMaster® A1 ResQ-Window active fire curtain barrier assembly used to form a virtually continuous barrier as a fire separating element.

The barrier assemblies comprise a woven steel and glass fabric wound on to a steel roller, powered by an internal 24V dc electric motor, enclosed within a 1.2 mm Stainless Steel box. Within the main curtain assembly there are two vision panels.

A bottom bar is fitted to the bottom edge of the curtain providing tension to the curtain with sufficient weight for the curtain to ‘fail-safe by gravity’.

The 24V motor contains an electromagnetic brake to arrest motion of the curtain when in the open position.

The barrier assemblies have been tested to the requirements of BS EN 14600:2005 for ‘Durability of Self-Closing’ (500 cycles on primary power and an additional 50 cycles using back-up power; closing speed of 0.08m/s).

The barrier assemblies have been tested to the requirements of BS EN 1634-1:2014 for ‘Fire Resistance’ (120 minutes integrity).

The barrier assemblies have been tested to the requirements of BS EN 1634-1:2014 for ‘Radiant Heat Flux’ (30 minutes).

Features and benefits:

  • See through a deployed curtain as a means of escape.
  • Safely egress from lifts.
  • Suitable for lift lobby muster points.
  • First responder can clear a building faster.
  • First responder can see the presence of an occupant on the other side of a curtain.
  • First responder can see the presence of fire on the other side of a curtain.
  • First responder can see the presence of smoke on the other side of a curtain.

Operation:

Barrier assemblies commence movement upon initiation of alarm or power or system failure, and fully deploy to the fire operational position within the range of velocities of 0.06 m/s to 0.15 m/s using the unique VarioSpeed™ function.

Operating speeds are site adjustable without altering the bottom bar mass. Speeds may be dictated by those authorities having jurisdiction for ‘safety in use’ according to the location, nature or function of each unit.

In the event of a mains supply power failure, the curtain is retained in the open position for a pre-determined period (nominally 30 minutes), using battery back-up power. During this period, the Barrier assembly will deploy on receipt of a signal. At the end of the period, the Barrier assembly will deploy.

Fire resistance:

120 minutes' (two hours) integrity.

Period of radiation:

Greater than 30 minutes (for a radiation level measured below 15kW/m2)

Classification:

E120 EW30 C1.

Product certification, performance and/ or testing:

  • Complete barrier assemblies are certified by an independent accredited certification body operating to ISO/IEC 17065:2012.
  • Complete barrier assemblies have been tested for fire resistance to BS EN 1634-1. The Barrier assembly achieved 120 minutes Integrity and 30 minutes Radiation.
