Elevator shafts are easy conduits to for the spread of smoke and fire which can engulf an entire building in minutes. While virtually invisible when retracted above the ceiling, DSI elevator smoke curtains create a smoke and fire barrier that replaces the need for elevator lobbies.
WALL OPENINGS AND FIRE COMPARTMENTALIZATION
To prevent the spread of smoke and fire from one zone to another, DSI Smoke and Fire Curtains are a vital element of smoke and fire compartmentalization strategy.
ATRIUM SMOKE AND FIRE STRATEGY
Atriums create large open spaces that can be quickly engulfed in smoke and fire as it spreads from lower to upper levels. The spread of smoke and fire can be limited by DSI Smoke and Fire Curtains as they can channel smoke to extraction systems.
Escalators and stairs create gaps between floors. These gaps are critical points that need to be sealed to stop the spread of fire and smoke from the lower and upper levels. By deploying on the upper level, fire curtains create a physical barrier against fire.
Loft areas present design challenges of preventing smoke and fire from spreading through ceiling and atrium voids, stairwells and skylights.
SMOKE CHANNELING / COMPARTMENTALIZATION
Utilized to assist the management of smoke in a building, channelizing the movement of smoke to smoke extraction points in the building or creating reservoirs to slow down the spreading of smoke.
Fire rated glass is not only extremely expensive, but also has size limitations. This means unsightly mullions will have to be incorporated in most applications. Use the DSI Fire Curtain in front of non-rated glass serves as an architecturally please and cost-effective alternative.
