What is this standard about?

It offers recommendations for the application, installation and maintenance of active fire curtain barrier assemblies. It applies solely to active fire curtain barrier assemblies conforming to BS 8524-1:2013 that are designed to provide fire or smoke resistance.

Who is this standard for?

  • Designers and manufacturers of active fire curtain barrier assemblies
  • Specifiers, architects, fire engineers
  • Approving authorities
  • Installers and maintenance personnel

Why should you use this standard? 

Fire and smoke curtain barriers allow for a greater freedom of design while ensuring minimal visual impact. This allows designers to be more radical with building design by increasing usable space.

When used as part of a fire-engineered design solution, barrier assemblies can become a critical element of that design. If barrier assemblies do not deploy to their operational position, the fire-engineered design solution would be compromised. However, in the event that other fire protection systems or elements do not function, e.g. due to total power failure, the barriers in the fire-operational position provide fire separation. 

BS 8524-2 offers the most up-to-date recommendations for the application, installation and maintenance of these barriers. 

What’s changed since the last update?

BS 8524 is a two part standard that developed from PAS 121. It has been updated by experts in line with technological developments and industry best practice.
