Controlling smoke and fire can be quite tricky when it comes to large buildings with open atriums. However, in order to allow time for occupants to evacuate safely in the event of an emergency, a smoke management system must be implemented.
Depending on the height and capacity of a building’s atrium, there are variety of options a contractor or architect can choose. One option is a passive smoke management system. A passive system merely seeks to section off the areas affected by smoke or fire to allow for effective evacuation. These partitions usually come in the form of fire doors or curtains.
Smoke and fire partitions can be virtually invisible when not in use as they recess into the walls or ceilings completely. In addition to being invisible, fire partitions require limited power and do not obstruct entering emergency crews.
