Smoke Seals: What are they and why do businesses need them?

In the event of a fire, you need every confidence in the technology designed to keep your people and assets safe. Smoke Seals are one of those crucial pieces of technology that keep people safe in the unexpected event of a fire happening in a workplace.

Ultimate Fire & Smoke Curtains Ltd Fire & Smoke Curtains 8524-1 & 2 Ltd Smoke Seals are patented and will last up to 20 years. Unlike other smoke seals on the market, these won’t melt and get in the way of a fire curtain coming down.

What are smoke seals?

Smoke seals are usually fitted around the frame of a fire door, or the frame of a smoke curtain. They are integral to fire suppression systems within buildings and are designed to minimize the impact of any smoke.

What usually happens, with other non-patented smoke seals, made of brush strips, is they soon melt and fall out-of-place from the heat of a fire, usually preventing a fire curtain from coming down. So instead of giving people extra time to escape, other smoke seals on the market stop fire curtains from working as they should, making an already dangerous situation worse.

Not only does this put people at risk, but it also makes it less likely that assets can be salvaged, as the fire could easily destroy what a smoke curtain was designed to protect, providing a fire is put out quick enough.
