Smoke Guard smoke curtains provide a solution for buildings with insufficient space for a smoke lobby. Because an elevator shaft can serve as a chimney in the event of an emergency, it is imperative to provide a seal between the elevator and the rest of the floor.
By installing Smoke Guard smoke curtains above elevator doors, you can easily create the equivalent of a smoke lobby when they are deployed without taking up valuable space. Smoke Guard’s curtain systems eliminate smoke lobbies and also allow the building owner to reclaim valuable space to increase the net saleable/ rentable floor space.
The smoke-rated curtain allows for the easy egress of occupants without changing the design or decreasing the opening of the elevator door. Contact our specialists today for more information on how to implement a smoke curtain system at your elevators.
