Why Are Smoke & Fire Curtains Important For Elevator Doors?

Elevator shafts are a permanent compartment breach with the potential to spread flames and smoke vertically through a building very rapidly. While most, if not all elevator doors provide a degree of fire integrity this is not the same for smoke sealing.DSI Smoke & Fire Curtains are able to offer a recognized “Smoke Seal” curtain that can be discretely installed into the surround facing the elevator door, rendering the curtain invisible when retracted. Once deployed it permits a greatly reduced level of smoke leakage falling inside the international leakage requirements.
