The paper overviews the way by which intumescent fire retardant compositions act as fillers in fire-resistant automatic curtains. A several intumescent compositions, which form a heat-isolating charred layer when they are exposed to high temperatures, were produced and applied to the mineral-fabric basis of the curtain. Fire-protective properties of produced materials were assessed and compared with foreign specimens. Swelling coefficient and material’s fire durability were considered as operating parameters. The developed specimen which performed the best during fire tests was sent to accredited laboratory. It was proven, using standardized methods, that it’s fire resistance limit reaches 30 minutes. This proves an effective contribution of an intumescent compound and opens new ways of using them in fire curtains manufacturing.
