Smoke spreads faster than fire. More people die because of smoke than because of the fire itself. Spreading of smoke in a building can be countered by dividing the building into so-called smoke compartments. Firescreen smoke curtains make it easy to create smoke compartments.
Corner solution for smoke
Smoke screens counter the spreading of smoke in a building. Plugging up openings in a wall is relatively easy. In corner situations, as can be found at escalators, atria, and mezzanines, creating a smoke compartment is more complex. Hoefnagels Fire Safety has developed a smoke-resistant corner solution especially for these situations. A very compact and economic system with which a smoke compartment can be created in every corner situation.
