How does the elevator curtain deploy in the event of a fire?

The release mechanism of the Smoke Guard system is connected to a smoke detector required by code at the elevator landing. Our system is designed to deploy only in cases where smoke is actively detected. When smoke is detected, the release mechanism activates system deployment. The SGS curtain covers the elevator openings on the floor where smoke was detected.

Some authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ) might have different requirements for this application.
