The Advantages of a Flexible Opening Protective

Tuesday July 21, 2015

The classic steel fire door has quite a legacy when it comes to fire protection. However, technology has come a long way and a flexible fire-rated opening protective has many more advantages when it comes to smoke and fire protection:

  • Invisible design: Smoke & Fire-rated opening protective assemblies are virtually invisible when not deployed. They don’t require large amounts of space or structural reinforcement. Because of this, opening protectives will not impede on the design of your building.

  • Virtually tamper-proof: Because opening protectives are completely stowed out of view when not in use, it is difficult for patrons to unknowingly tamper with or hinder the performance of them. On the other hand, fire doors can be easily blocked by furniture or forcibly propped open.

  • Improved traffic flow: Fire-rated opening protectives improve traffic flow by not requiring large door frames or enclosures.
