The article describes one of the ways to reduce the fire hazard of technological processes and industries by using a convective fire barrier, which can not only prevent the spread of dangerous fire factors beyond its source, but also be used as a fence providing ventilation of spaces with the presence of technological equipment, in which circulate flammable gases or liquids. The authors considered the existing designs of fire barriers and proposed a convective fire barrier, described its design, operating principle, and also presented options for a barrier made of reinforced concrete materials and expanded metal. An example of the practical application of the barrier is given.
