All the latest news from around the industry
When fire safety curtains are deployed in the event of fire, the compartmentation they create helps to reduce the spread of fire throughout the building. Whilst this gives the fire service a much greater chance of tackling the fire in a shorter timeframe, first responders are often faced with dangerous circumstances.
Without the ability to see what is behind the fire curtain, first responders are forced to walk into unknown circumstances, which can be dangerous or even fatal.
BLE saw an opportunity to improve the safety of first responders by launching the industry's first UL certified, translucent, flexible composite panel allowing building occupants and first responders the ability to see through fire curtains after deployment, for safer and faster evacuation and elimination of fire.
Fitted into any standard BLE fire curtain, the ResQ-WINDOW™ creates safer circumstances for first responders in the event of fire, allowing visual confirmation of the location of fire for safe passage onto the other side of the curtain.
Managing Director of BLE, Nigel Ward tells us "The ResQ-WINDOW™ is an important addition to our range that allows us to enhance the safety solution offered by our existing fire curtains. The simple see-through window does not only assist the fire services but also saves the lives of building occupants, helping to reduce evacuation times and find safe routes to escape the building."
