Custom Fire & Smoke Curtains for Theaters & Auditoriums

Newtex custom-made proscenium fire safety curtains are designed for use in theaters, school auditoriums and other public performance areas. Most city and state-mandated building codes require the use of fire curtains, which are lowered in the event of a fire on stage to  protect the audience from smoke and flames as the area is evacuated. Fabricated from ZetexPlus®, our curtains have been tested to ensure they exceed nationally recognized model fire codes.  They are listed and approved by the California State Fire Marshal's Office and the New York City Department of Buildings.
