Firewater Containment System: T AB BVD

The firewater barrier, certified by TÜV and produced according to VdS guidelines, consists of a metal, multi-chamber profiled barrier which is thermally and mechanically resistant. On either the left or right sides, the metal barrier is attached to a pivoting hinge. When open, the barrier’s vertical positioning is spatially economical. When activated – using any number of electric open contacts arranged in a row or in cases of power loss – the metal barriers close slowly and lock into place. The 90° closing process is driven by pneumatic cylinders. When the barrier has reached its closed position, it is lowered by the hub hinge and permanently locked into place by a pneumatic clamp. Activation of an acknowledgement button starts the reset cycle, returning the barrier to its open position.
