Asbestos fire curtains

As time passes, fire curtains become deteriorated, sustain damage by being ripped or torn, and when this happens, fibers of asbestos are released into the air making the environment dangerous for the people required to be constantly around them.

For almost a century, fire curtains were made from the naturally occurring mineral called asbestos. The fibers of asbestos made curtains withstand flames and prevent major catastrophes. Unfortunately, they posed another kind of threat.

In time, the fire curtains would start to deteriorate and the workers would have been unknowingly exposed to asbestos fibers by simply lowering them on stage. Any disturbance to a used up or deteriorated asbestos fire curtain would cause it to shred, making the toxic particles airborne. You could have been exposed if:

  • You interacted directly with asbestos fire curtains
  • You found yourself performing maintenance work in theaters before the 1980s
  • You were involved in asbestos abatement projects
