- Unique fire curtain with transparent panels.
- Provides up to 2 hours protection from smoke and fire.
- Windows remain clear at temperatures in excess of 200 °C
- Conforms with EN 16034 (pending)
ResQ-Window™ (Patent Pending) translucent fire proof flexible composite panels were developed by the Fire Curtains Group to address the need for visual light transmitting safety windows in a deployable fire curtain system. This truly novel new product will remain clear to temperatures in excess of 200 °C and gradually transition to a white opaque structure as exposure temperatures rise to 1000°C .
The curtain is designed for doorways, corridors, lift shafts, hoistways and other areas where people and emergency services may need access. The two transparent windows in the ResQ-Window™ curtain are positioned to allow a low and high level view through the curtain.
ResQ-Window™ panels will withstand direct flame at temperatures up to 1065°C for periods of up to 2 hours with no flame penetration and low thermal shrinkage, surpassing the requirements of ASTM E-119 fire endurance and FAR 25 appendix F.
ResQ-Window™ is strong, flexible and has no toxic gassing or surface flaming when exposed to fire. It will also provide an insulative barrier between the fire and unexposed side.
ResQ-Window™ is made from specialized high purity silica fabrics, extremely high purity silicone optical resins, and nano-particle silica opacifiers. High temperature thermal exposures will cause the view safe panel to convert to an ultra-high purity silica refractory in a “ceramification” process.
