Fire Protection of Cavity & Smoke Barriers


Fixed Smoke Curtain

In fire situations, smoke generally kills more people faster than exposure to heat, flames or structural collapse. Most modern buildings today have an engineered smoke control system which frequently involves the use of smoke reservoirs by means of constructing smoke channelling screens and curtains. Smoke reservoirs are used to prevent the lateral spread of smoke and to create a reservoir in which to collect smoke for removal.

Smoke curtains and screens must meet the requirements of BS 7346: Part 3: 1990, which requires the screen to withstand a fire temperature of 600°C (± 20°C) for a minimum of 30 minutes. Promat solutions offer a permanent, easy to install, maintenance free and cost efficient method to meet and exceed the requirements of the above standard.
