Control Smoke Movement & Damage

Create a temporary blockade, almost entirely eliminating smoke spread and movement between rooms. Keeps escape routes such as stairwells free from blinding and suffocating smoke. Significantly helps to prevent unnecessary smoke risk/damage, saving property.

Control the Flow Path

Allows a firefighter to easily open and close flow paths. Puts fire movement/growth control in the department’s hands. Application based on recent research conducted by UL FSRI on interior flow paths.

Amplify PPV/PPA – Increase Pressure

Effectively reduce doorway size allowing closer fan placement while maintaining necessary air seal. Fan closer to the ventilation point increases internal pressures and resulting ventilation rates from 50 to 100%.

Never Block Point of Egress

Only prevents air movement through the opening, not personnel. Deploys in any doorway or window opening without obstructing the point of egress unlike closing the door or window. Frees up personnel from having to manage a closed doorway.

FABRIC

Silicone Impregnated Fiberglass. Heat resistant up to 1100°F/600°C*

*Use in temperatures exceeding 500°F/260°C will slowly degrade the fabric’s protective coating. This is normal and does not immediately affect the PathMaster’s® function. The unit’s fabric is designed to be replaced easily if/when its protective coating has been compromised beyond use.
