HMS Marine Introduces Halon Containment Curtain

HMS Marine Hardware, Inc., of Valley Stream, N.Y., recently introduced its Halon Containment curtains for shipboard use.

After halon is released during an emergency, the gas must be contained within the area of the fire in order for it to be properly extinguished and to avoid its coming into contact with crewmen not wearing protective breathing apparatus.

The HMS Quick-Release Ventilator Curtains for ship's topside (exterior) grills have been designed to act as effective barriers against halon or other gasses passing through a ship's ventilation system.

Made of fire-resistant coated fiberglass cloth, the Halon-containment curtains are well suited to exterior usage as they are also resistant to mildew, fungus and bacteria.

HMS Marine reports that the curtains are easily washable by wiping and will not rot, shrink or stretch.
