We are greatly saddened to learn of the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh on Friday 9th April 2021. We wish to convey our most sincere condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family.
The Duke of Edinburgh was well known for his interest in manufacturing, engineering and innovation and we were honoured when he visited our Telford factory in July 1989, during our centenary year. I had the privilege of escorting His Royal Highness around the factory where he showed great interest in all that we were doing and spoke to many members of the Lowe & Fletcher staff.

At BLE we are continually striving to improve the safety of your world. In the event of a fire, our gravity fail-safe curtains automatically deploy to contain smoke and fire. This slows down how quickly it can spread across a building, crucially allowing more time for safe emergency evacuation.
As a market leading global supplier, we protect millions of people every day. Our cost effective solutions are rigorously tested and manufactured to the highest technical and quality standards, including BS, EN and UL.
Create a smoke reservoir or channel smoke in the required direction as part of a smoke and heat exhaust ventilation system (SHEV).
Maintain fire compartmentation to limit the spread of fire and create protected escape routes without compromising fire resistance.
BLE’s electronic control systems are designed in-house to ensure compatibility with the mechanical aspects of the product. All our curtains operate on a gravity fail safe basis to ensure the highest level of safety even if the mains power supply has been compromised. Back-up batteries are supplied as standard to allow the system to operate as normal for up to 4 hours in the event of a temporary power outage.
