There are several reports of fires that destroy theaters and concert halls. One of the best known cases in Portugal was the fire that happened in Oporto, in 1888, at the Baquet Theater, with at least 120 fatalities.
One of the issues that was debated after the tragedy was the responsibility for inspection and security conditions in these spaces, which normally host a significant number of people.
Fires in Theaters and Auditoriums are one of the most significant risks in urban areas, whether in Portugal or in the world, and their protection and safety must be ensured.
In Portugal, the Decree-Law no. 220/2008, (November 12nd) approved the legal regime for Fire Safety in Buildings, and which determines in its article 15º, that the general technical provisions be regulated by decree of the member of the Government responsible for civil protection and specific to Fire Safety in Buildings.
It is therefore very important to know and invest in safety equipment and systems that can support the prevention and safety of people and goods.
To support those responsible for the safety of these spaces, we developed FLAMA, the first fire-cutting curtain to be manufactured in Portugal and which has characteristics and functionalities that support fire prevention.
