CES 4 - Passive Smoke + Fire Protection in Hospitals

Length: 1 Hour

Credits: 1 Learning Unit, Health Safety Welfare (HSW)

Passive fire and smoke protection is a major concern for healthcare facilities. The evolution of high temperature materials has made it possible to provide minimal, high performance, code-compliant smoke-and fire-rated protection for openings throughout the constructed environment. This presentation will touch on IBC and NFPA requirements for fire and smoke protection throughout the hospital. Our discussion will address the building code requirements for fire and smoke protection of openings and the innovative passive curtain solutions available for unique applications throughout the I-2 environment including elevator openings and multi-story spaces.
