Lasermet launches folding laser safety curtains

Share this on social media:

Lasermet’s new Orcatina safety curtains are the firm's answer to providing laser protection for personnel by using a compact and neat curtain system that uses a pantograph structure in the folding mechanism.

This guarantees a continuous and consistent pattern of folds that can be used not only to safeguard against laser radiation, but to act as a room separator and to minimise the sounds from the neighbouring partitioned room.

The folded laser blocking curtains use the minimum of space once drawn back. There are no floor rails as the curtains are supported solely by the upper rail structure. The curtains are made from Lasermet’s specially developed Orca, black and white, laser blocking material which is used on Lasermet’s conventional laser blocking curtains and laser blocking roller blinds with the consistent PEL ratings for different power densities and timescales.

Ideal for wide installations, the Orcatina curtains provide a neat result while maintaining safety for personnel to the laser safety standard BS EN IEC 60825-4. In providing the necessary protection level, Lasermet’s Orcatina laser blocking curtains are designed as passive guards to enclose an area where Class 3B or Class 4 lasers are used. The curtains are designed to protect against accidental exposure to the laser beam, or for long term blocking of laser radiation at lower power densities.
