What Should I Know in Advance?
When you approach an Active Fire or Smoke Curtain company, although they would be able to advise you, it is best to know which configuration of Fire Curtain you will need, and which performance type.
There is a blog post on our website which can help you to decide which type you need before you reach out for a quote, entitled ‘What is a Fire Curtain?’
Other information that it would be useful to know:
how many curtains you will need.
The measurements of the curtain you require.
Which specification type you need, for example an e, ei, or ew Fire Curtain
Once you have a good idea of your requirements for an Active Fire or Smoke Curtain, you can make an informed choice about possible suppliers that may be local to you, although it can be worth enquiring if you feel particularly drawn to a specific company, especially if you have had a word-of-mouth recommendation from a trusted source.
By heading into conversations with Active Fire Protection companies with the facts you need, you can ensure that you get the most out of your supplier of choice. Spending some time increasing your knowledge of Fire and Smoke Curtains will ensure that you make an informed decision and that your requirements are precise and specific, which should in turn speed up the quoting process.
