Horizontal Fire Curtains For Atriums

Smoke Guard California offers an innovative option for smoke & fire protection for open atriums. The Model 3000 is a fire-rated curtain that deploys horizontally to separate floors and inhibit the transfer of smoke from the place of incident to the rest of the building. Atriums provide an important design aesthetic when it comes to building design. However, the open layouts provide many complications when it comes to smoke and fire safety. The Smoke Guard horizontal smoke curtain allows for even more openness when it comes to design as it can create a horizontal separation between floors, compartmentalizing smoke in the event of an emergency. The Model 3000 is typically installed between flooring decks and is automatically deployed upon a signal from the local smoke detection system. If you feel a horizontal curtain would be right for your project, give the experts at Smoke Guard California a call.
