  • Protecting means of escape at the elevator hoistway entrances

  • Allowing first responders better visibility with the BLE ResQ Window curtain

 

There are several types of fire curtains in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, Northern California, including fire curtains for elevators. Smoke and flames often travel through elevator shafts to spread through a building faster, but a fireguard elevator prevents this spread. A fire drop curtain drops from the ceiling and cuts off fire from entering large spaces, hoistway entrances such as atriums or lobbies.

Both fire curtains for elevators and at least one fire drop curtain are important for residential and commercial spaces. Our expert team can help you pick out the right fireguard elevator near me to protect tenants in an apartment building, office complexes, or a fire drop curtain that will protect the most valuable parts of your warehouse or manufacturing lot. Our team is knowledgeable about fire-resistant curtains that meet local codes and include certified vision panels to help first responders do their job.
