BIG Fire & Ventilation have been designing and developing some of the world’s most innovative equipment to assist rescue teams in disaster situations and firefighting teams across the world with improving visibility and operating temperatures for rescue situations.

With the easily operated tension lever, the BIG Fire & Ventiliation’s portable smoke blocker made out of heat resistant fabric can be installed quickly into a door or entrance opening. The door to the affected area can then be opened so firefighters can enter the room behind for their operations without the spread of smoke and heat in the building. Escape routes for the residents and retreat ways for the fire fighters can then be kept smoke-free.

It is possible for the security backup to stay close to the attacking firefighters so the time for a rescue operation in case of a breathing protection emergency is considerably reduced. Dangerous situations through the spread of smoke and heat are effectively minimised or avoided because the portable smoke blocker allows control of the inflow of air to the area of the fire for directed and controlled ventilation.
