Fire Protection of Cavity & Smoke Barriers


Smoke Barrier

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.

Following are some factors to consider when determining the correct specification to ensure cavity barriers provide the required fire performance:

  • Size of barrier & location
  • Differential movement
  • Service penetrations
  • Adjoining structure
