Fire & Smoke Rated Curtain System Applications: Historic Buildings

Historic Buildings are usually grandfathered in when it comes to building codes. Therefore, fire and smoke protection is usually lacking greatly. That being said, if major renovations are planned there will be the expectation to meet current building codes. When trying to increase the safety of historical buildings there are usually restrictive limits on architectural modifications. These limits require great flexibility in smoke & fire protection products. Fire curtains from Smoke Guard California provide great flexibility to protect historic buildings from smoke & fire emergency. Furthermore, depending on the value of the building we can help design a very effective system to match the building’s value.
