Eight Windowshield fire curtains were installed by Smoke Control at a home in Newcastle to provide fire protection for windows close to the boundary.
Smoke Control supplies fire protection solutions for buildings on a boundary with Windowshield fire shutters. A -/60/- solution is required for any building on a boundary, which is within 3m of another building as per the National Construction Code Clause C3.4. Sprinklers cannot be used on operable windows.
Windowshield fire shutters provide -/60/- protection and comply with BCA Clause C3.4 in addition to allowing the use of operable windows.
Solutions such as Stopline fire windows, automatic closing fire windows, Metashield fire shutters, Windowshield fire curtains and Stopline fire rated glass blocks can be combined to balance costs and architectural requirements.
