Storm King Fire Barrier Curtains

Named after the mountain in Colorado where fourteen firefighters died in a burnover in 1994, Storm King Mountain has been a leader in providing products that use thermal insulating materials to protect firefighters in a fast moving flame front. Fire Barrier Curtains save lives.



Storm King Fire Barrier Curtains

Launched in 1999, our Fire Barrier Curtain is made of multiple layers of aluminum that provide burn protection on fire engines, bulldozers, water tankers, and other fire safety equipment. The curtain is held in place and can withstand 50 miles per hour (80 Km/h) winds, safeguarding firefighters from the harshest elements.

Product Testing:

Our fire curtain products are designed for both radiant and convective heat environments. They are the first products designed for firefighters’ protection in wildfire conditions. The Storm King Mountain™ fire curtains are made to handle the direct flame contact of fast-moving flame fronts with no burn through of the material in heat flux conditions of 85 kW/M2/second and temperatures up to 1,100°C (2,000°F) for up to 5 minutes.
