Advantages over traditional aluminium:

  • Steel is x3 stronger than any comparable aluminium system
  • Steel system profiles are slimmer than the comparable aluminium system
  • Using steel allows higher transparency and larger spans

With small frame ratios and large glass areas, they fulfil important architectural requirements with respect to visual elegance and transparency.

The advantages of steel – Fire protection

The fire resistance of steel is significantly higher than that of aluminium.

  • Melting point of steel = 1,500 ᵒC
  • Melting point of aluminium = 660 ᵒC

Steel does not melt, it does not result in caustic or corrosive fumes in the event of fire, it remains stable.

Smoke Control (Baffles) in Public areas.

Martec Fire supply glazed smoke control systems which offer a passive solution and require little or no maintenance. In the event of a fire, they work to prevent the spread of smoke, ensuring it is ducted to the extraction system quickly. Our glazed smoke curtains deliver a safer alternative to fabric curtains.

Advantages:

  • There is virtually no maintenance needed, cleaning the glass is all that is required
  • It is a permanent fixture and needs no periodic testing, avoiding the disruption and subsequent cleaning required with fabric curtains
  • We use modified fire resistant glasses, if a breakage does occur, it fractures into small pieces.

Our solution can be either framed or frameless dependent on, performance and aesthetic requirements.
