Jails, Prisons and detention centers provide a unique dilemma when it comes to fire and smoke safety. Not only are these building already somewhat segmented, but the safety and security of both residents and employees needs to be taken into consideration. Chances are, these buildings already have evacuation procedures in place that need to be complimented by smoke and fire containment technology.
Luckily smoke rated curtains can easily be integrated into evacuation procedures using either automatic or manual deployment to allow for facility personnel to carry out the necessary steps in the event of an emergency. These types of buildings often have large open areas meaning smoke and fire can easily and quickly spread throughout. Effective curtain deployment can help block the spread of smoke and fire and give more time for proper evacuation.
