Westwood supply high quality Fire Curtains at the low prices. Nobody in the UK can match the value for money and quality Fire Curtains service provided by Westwood.

Fire Curtains allow you to restrict the lateral spread of Fire and gas which tend to creep along the underside of an internal ceiling in the event of fire. When integrated as part of a Fire control system, Fire Curtains are particularly effective. It is possible to create Fire reservoirs from which Fire and hot gases can be extracted.

Westwood automatic Fire Curtains offer our clients much more than an addition to their Fire ventilation systems. Fire Curtains save lives. They are an essential safety element that help stop the spread of lethal gases which are part of almost every fire and which are frequently responsible for death and serious injury.
