A fire curtain and a smoke curtain are not the same, although they serve related purposes in fire protection systems.

Fire Curtain:

A fire curtain is designed to prevent the spread of fire and smoke in a building.

It is typically made of fire-resistant materials and is installed in areas where fire separation is required.

Fire curtains are activated in the event of a fire, automatically descending to create a barrier that hinders the movement of flames and smoke, thus helping to contain the fire within a specific area.

Smoke Curtain:

A smoke curtain, on the other hand, is specifically designed to control and contain the movement of smoke within a building during a fire.

Smoke curtains are often used in conjunction with fire curtains, but their primary function is to limit the spread of smoke rather than fire.

Like fire curtains, smoke curtains are deployed automatically when a fire is detected, creating a barrier to prevent smoke from spreading to other areas of the building.

In summary, while both fire curtains and smoke curtains are part of fire protection systems, a fire curtain focuses on preventing the spread of both fire and smoke, whereas a smoke curtain is specifically designed to control the movement of smoke.
