Fire Curtains

Designed and manufactured with the highest certification standards, BLE Fire Curtains maintain fire compartmentation to restrict the spread of fire and create safe escape routes without compromising fire resistance.

Delivering fire compartmentation along with a protected means of escape (up to 4 hours integrity and 2 hours radiation ratings), BLE’s active fire curtains are the optimal and most reliable solution for numerous building specifications.

Vanguard_ResQ-Window_Vision_Panel_Fire_C

Vanguard is proud to be a premier distributor and installer for the BLE RESQ Window – the industry’s first UL certified vision panel. The leading-edge vision panel allows first responders and building occupants to see through the deployed smoke and fire curtains, making evacuation and fire extinguishing faster and safer.

 

  • The ResQ-Window is a vision panel for smoke and fire curtains that deliver faster identification and elimination of the fire source, thereby saving more lives.

  • The ResQ-Window responds by allowing safer entry into affected areas of the building and safer evacuation.

  • Ultra high-strength, high-purity material (silica fabric containing silicone optical resins and nano-particle silica opacifiers) is used without surface-flaming or toxic gas release when exposed to smoke and fire.

  • The ResQ-Window is flexible enough to install on any standard smoke or fire curtain, increasing the level of safety to specific fire safety systems.

  • Able to withstand temperatures of up to 1832°F with a maximum 3 hours fire integrity. Meets UL 1784 for smoke compliance.

  • Delivers a minimum of three hours of fire integrity (E).

  • Completely UL certified.

 

BLE’s ResQ-Window was developed for smoke and fire curtains in the following space areas:
 

  • Doorways and corridors that contain escape routes

  • Building lobbies and lift-openings

  • Spaces and areas that require mandatory surveying from Fire Marshals and the Fire and Rescue Services just prior to entry
